How rare is you Camaro in Canada?

Question: In your Canadian city or town, how unique is your Camaro? Do you see other Camaro's often or seldom?

Reading other Camaro5 threads during last 3 years, seems like in the US many have posted they see many 5th gen Camaro's daily. Here in Ottawa, three years ago, perhaps I saw one Camaro a month at best. In last 3 years only spotted one Camaro with my paint color, white. Now, might see another 5th gen about every 1-1/2 weeks on the streets of Ottawa. So in Ottawa driving a Camaro is still a little unique. Not yet spotted another white Camaro in years, in Ottawa.

My Ottawa Camaro:
2011 2LT coupe / non-RS / V6 w A6 / Summit White & Beige Leather = 92 of 106,987 total production. 2011 Camaro production,106,987, only 4,225 Camaro's sold in Canada (2011 model year), have not found breakdown on how many of the 92 in my trim level were sold in Canada (would be nice to know non-sunroof, optional polished 19-inch. wheels, optioned my way sold in Canada). Side note: Also have a 1998 Riviera, and after some research found out 1998 Riviera total production was only 10,953, my current Riviera made my way (no sunroof etc.) is only 1 of 3 out of 10,953, produced in 1998 model year.

Last: Anyone up to have a CANADA FORUM sticky (perhaps "Camaro's in Canada") where regardless of Province we post pictures of our Camaro's? Our Canada forum seems a little disjointed now. Many of our 5th gen Camaro's were made in Canada, but so few sold in Canada. Just a thought. You might have a 1 of 1 in Canada.

usually see about 1 camaro every 2 to 3 days in my small town about and hour and a half north of toronto.....less so when it gets cold out....i have a 2011 2ss vert with RS package in cyber grey with the ground effects package with L99 engine and A6 transmission. Only saw one other convertible in this colour through the summer and i believe it was a V6 without the ground effects.....pretty rare colour in the verts from what i have seen so far......mine was a US vehicle that was imported back to Canada....loving the car so far, only had it for just under a year and only drove it this past summer......

ok I'll play

I have a 2011 SGM 1lt RS m6 with black stripes. only 124 made with m6.
probably 10-12 in Canada.

Pagliaro has the same except with a6 and sunroof.

I saw a black LS on russel road today between Walkley and Russel.

also a red 1lt on Othelo behind Elmdale shopping mall.

and there is Black v6 in Cheney,

have seen a couple of white verts this summer. and one white SS coupe.

usually see a couple a week during the summer. not so many after the snow flies.

you might have saw mine...its a 2011 V6 vert with RS package in cyber grey...Also mine is a Canadian car.

and not too many verts in cyber grey produced.I am not sure of the total numbers but the verts started production around feb 2011 and cyber grey colour ended around end of April 2011..so there was only about 3 months worth of possible production time and not alot of verts produced in this time period were cyber grey in colour.

Not very rare in Oshawa as I don't live too far from the plant.
Drive by the factory quite regularly and see hundreds of them at a time heading out to the dealerships.

I know more Camaro's in my Color than any other which is odd because mines SGM. However that is only basing of the Camaro's I regularly see.

I'm just satisfied to be in the SGM family and surprised based on it's rarity that Ottawa area seems to dominate the SGM ownership.

Not sure how Many 2013 1LE's were sold in Canada but my car is 1 of 72 Summit White 1SS/1LE's and counting 1SS and 2SS only 1828 were made total.

I only know 1 other guy with a 1LE and hes in Windsor, I still have yet to see another 1LE in kitchener/waterloo. So I think mines kinda rare, I do see other Camaro's but its not like there everywhere.

My car is 1 of 36 Hot Wheels Edition made for Canada. And of that there were only 32 coupes and 4 convertibles! Even with those low numbers there is one other car like mine here! And the guy lives just down the road too.

I do see other Camaros here in Fort McMurray. This year I've seen a couple ZL-1's and quite a few coupes (V6 and SS).

I see about two to three a day here in the GTA
Majority of them are stock, few have Minor mods
Saw a SGM LTRS today
Camaros are pretty common here
But modded ones are much more rare
Mine is certainly different. Not one like mine in Canada that's for sure

I live in a small city of just under 15,000 people. I see four on a daily basis, my boyfriends 1LE in my driveway, bosses ZL1, co workers 45th anniversary, and a yellow 1lt that I sold to a lady that lives near me. Other than that I normally see at least 1-3 others per day. I sometimes think we have the highest concentration of Camaros per percapita. There are 5 45th Anniversary alone in town.

I find that there are a lot of camaros in Alberta!

There is one guy in Fort McMurray who has a more rare car then I do. He has this car:

I see "lots"...probably 10-12 per day just going to and from work (Mississauga to Brampton and back).

Ive only seen one other Camaro thats my colour though, and its a 2LT RS, not a 2SS/RS like me..but hes not far from me.

My neighbour has a 2011 2SS/RS vert in victory red and he just picked up a black C7 Stingray.

There's a couple SGM's and i always see Yellow ones.

Most common colour I see is Black/Yellow/Silver/Red in that order..
