Is anyone else getting a little annoyed by the constant attention?

I got my black 2SS/RS last Wednesday 6/17 and as of today 6/21 I have 334 miles on it already. I absolutely love the car and the attention the car gets was really neat... for a couple of days. It's starting to get a little annoying as I can't stop anywhere without someone asking me 100 questions. I put gas in it for the first time yesterday and I had a group of 8 people gathered around the car asking me questions. There were 2 guys getting gas at another station across the street that left their car at the pump and walked over to talk to me.

On Friday we went to dinner and when we left the restaurant there was 5 people checking out the car, at the grocery store yesterday we could barely make it into the store. Even people at traffic lights ask me to roll down the window so they can talk to me.

It's cool that the car gets so much attention but I've had to clean my windows 3 times and I can't even count how many times I've had to clean finger prints off of the car because the black paint shows everything. Yesterday when we came out of the grocery store there was a guy looking in the drivers window while shading his eyes, hand prints all over the window again. This guy had a belt buckle the size of a hub cap and I was afraid to look at the door for fear he scratched the car with his belt buckle! The positive comments and questions are great, but what do you say to people that feel compelled to tell you what they don't like about your car? I had a guy yesterday that said it looked to much like a Dodge for his taste...what should I have said to that comment??

How long do you think this attention will last? I suppose in another 6 months there will be a lot of Camaro's on the road and it will subside so I probably have no right to complain. I really had no idea the car would get this kind of attention, it's certainly not something most of us are used to.


Anyone else starting to get annoyed by the attention?

I want that! I have a case of ROCKSTAR energy drinks to pass out so i don't have to answer any questions...

"NO questions right now...sorry, here take this"

What you are getting now will probably wear off by the end of the year when dealers start getting an inventory and you see them all the time like the Rustang...

Enjoy it while it last...will be good memories later on down the road!

It is kinda annoying sometimes, but I am enjoying it right now, cause next summer I will just be another Camaro.

The problem is the color you got. If you got ABM then it would be all chicks and you wouldn't be complaining.

Stop washing the car...if it's dirty you probably won't have so many people pressing up against the car or windows.

Sorry to say with Transformers coming out Wed..it's only the beginning..good luck....

Russ
I just smile at the good compliments I get and when someone doesn't like something I'd say something like I don't like it either while smiling, or simply say "yea" and get in my car and drive away. This is with my 4th gen lol

once the sales start to kick up, you'll be better off.

I don't think it will wear off as fast as people are saying it will. I am actually goin to make a sign that will say, 'I know you like it, but I don't like your finger prints - THANX'... LoLz...

As far as negative responses go, just ask the person who has something negative to say, "what do you drive?". I'm sure it will shut 'em up.

I don't believe there will be as many CAMAROs as people say their will be. It will maintain ROCKSTAR status for another whole year or maybe 2...

Hey SLVRBULLET- I happen to like driving the car or else I wouldn't have bought it. I haven't blown off a single person that has asked me about the car, even when I was in a hurry or it was inconvienent. I WASN'T prepared for the notoriety the car has, I purchased the car for myself not for any kind of notoriety.

Putting a sign on the car about fingerprints is a good idea.

If I had "chicks" hanging around the car I would have to listen to my wife and daughter complain about that!

Keep it dirty? The black looks great but it is really tuff to keep clean.

I agree the fingerprints and stuff get a little annoying but whatever it goes with the territory and they wash off... The excitement will dwindle and it will be just another Camaro some day, so enjoy it while it lasts...

Just sounds like you are starting to whine about getting such 'overwhelming' attention...

I LIKE IT!!! The only thing more exciting than all the attention was seeing my car for the first time, just waiting there for me to come and play.

Last Friday I went to my first cruse night and parked next to me was a Viper. He got annoyed that my car was getting all the attention!


Long Live Camaro (and its attention)!

It's a bitch to be so popular, go by a volvo wagon.

Claybar and Zaino the car. Then just carry some detail spray and a towel. Fingerprint problem gone.
