Camaro Embarrassment?

First off, I haven't stopped smiling since I got my Camaro. But today, as I was getting on the freeway, this bad a$$ Corvette the exact same color got on right behind me.

Then he changed lanes right behing me for like three lanes, damn near tailgating me. Then he finally changed lanes, sped up and got off freeway. Almost like he was trying to floss on me.

For a second, I was almost embarassed I "just had a Camaro." Is that normal/wrong? Or am I just crazy.

I pulled my IOM Camaro in to a gas station and parked to run in and grab something. A corvette in IOM parked right beside me. We just complimented each others cars.

Never be embarrassed of your car. Its probably everyone else who is jealous

As SoCalThug said, Chevy runs deep! My coworker has a Vette GS, and we talk cars all the time. Both are great cars.

Personally when I bought my Camaro it was between a new vette or new camaro... I loved the look of the new camaro, they both had LS3s... and I like being able to recline my seat and have all that extra room inside the cab Plus also have a trunk. No reason to think "just a camaro" because personally I liked the Camaro more... so thats why I bought it. That being said.... Vettes are awesome and maybe one day they'll win the decision. Untill then... Chevy runs deep.

Why would you be embarrassed that you owned a Camaro? Enjoy what you have. Someone somewhere is always going to have something newer or faster.

Be glad that he didn't rev at you . I love my car but. I had a vette owner pull up on the side of me trying to get me to race for about five stop lights while I just kept cruising speed limit.

Gotta show some pride in your car. Think about how that vette guy feels when a viper , 458 italia or aventador pulls beside and passes him.
