Finally saw one on the road

Usually I'm pretty aware of the other vehicles around me, but not last night. We're coming home from dinner and my wife says "hey isn't that one of those cars you're always looking at on the internet?" Sure enough I look over and there it was: A shiny black SS just cruising along a little bit ahead of me.

I sped up to get a better look at it. Holy cow, it looked amazing. This was the first one I've seen out in the wild and I just couldn't believe I was actually seeing it. By the time my senses returned and I thought about snapping a pic of it, he had turned off the highway.

Wow. That's about all I could say for about 10 minutes. Wow.

Have you been under a rock? I have seen about 20 over the past two months... Maybe I have a better trained eye...

I suppose not. I said that sort of tongue in cheek. I am actually shocked I have seen so many in SW Ohio. The 20 does not count the dealerships either. I have seen all those cars on the road.

Here is a pic I took of one in a parking lot I parked next to. I could not resist!

Phukkin A!!!

I can't catch a glimpse of an SS to save my life! I have seen 5 LTs so far, but not one SS!

I'd be so pissed if I walked back to my new Camaro parked in the very last parking spot and some puts had parked his old beater next to my ride.

Even if it was a Lambo LP640 parked next to my maro, I'd be T/O'd.

Nice blue color, btw.

As of today, mine is the only one on the road where I live on Long Island, NY...and, "no, I don't live under a rock"...
Just not a lot delivered here so far...maybe because you live in Ohio it makes a difference...
I WISH I could see what the Camaro looks like "in the wild", cruisin' down the highway!!!...
BTW, I did buy mine from a dealer/friend in Virginia and picked mine up there and drive it home to NY...........

Got to see my first one on the road a couple of days ago. Not many in NW Arkansas either, but I did get to sit in one for the first time yesterday in Missouri. I think I felt a heart palpitation! Can't wait much longer.

I saw one on the road for the first time on Thursday it was a Yellow LT. I live in the NYC area which get a lot of Camaros. I don't live under a rock either.

I do a hell of alot of driving (about 100 mi/day), and go in plenty of crowed parking lots. To date I have seen only 1 "in the wild"

I drive 75 miles a day through heavy traffic in NJ, still haven't seen one.

Besides mine I have only seen two others in real life. Both in a dealership parking lot.

There are about 8 in my town right now. I have only seen 4 of them on the streets though.

The first one was at the beginning of April, I was dumbfounded.

I have since then been lucky enough to find this sight and learn soooo so much.

The second Camaro I saw "in the wild" I almost didnt notice. I had seen so many pictures here, that I didnt put it all together that one was actually sitting there in a parking lot I was driving by.

I have seen many in MI, but even living there they are still rare to see. The car still gets quite a reaction on the road.

Driving back to Toronto on Thursday I did see 3 haulers with Camaros. One on 696 was full of all yellow Camaros, two in Canada near London were a mix of Impalas/Camaros all heading west.

Just saw my first one on the road today. I was heading north on I-81, north of Syracuse NY going back home to Ottawa, Canada. And there it was! A silver Camaro with black rally stripes heading south. I yelled out 'Camaro!' and my wife yelled out 'Awesome!' (The silver is her favourite). A guy on a motorcycle behind us peeled off at the next exit to try and loop back to catch up with the car! I could see him pointing in my rearview mirror. I know there are a few roaming around Ottawa, but I haven't seen any yet. Until my black 2LT with orange rally stripes arrives in late July/early August...I have to live through this forum and the hope that i will see one on the road in the meantime.

I past by a SIM with black Stripes, we both gave eachother the flashes and gave a thumbs up. I then saw a Black SS with dealer plates. Looks like a dealer taking a car home for the weekend, hmmmm.

That makes about 50 Mustangs to 2 Camaros on the road I saw this weekend.

I have seen only ONE here in Austin, TX. It was CGM, and beauuuuuuutiful!

I have also seen 2 2010 Mustangs, both GT's, both pretty badass looking.
