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.
