Best Advertisement for 5th Gen Camaro and How It Influenced Your Choice

For me, since I'm still a youngin', the first word I got about the new Camaro was from the Transformers movies. After seeing the first concept model, my reaction was something like "Damn, that looks good. Meh, maybe one day."

I got a new job and started playing with the idea of a new car. It had to be black (I'll get to that in a minute). I was debating between a Nissan Z, Dodge Challenger, or the Camaro. Did some research on the specs/price and it was between the Challenger and the Camaro.

I have a specific purpose in mind for the black paint. I'm in my "happy zone" when I'm driving at night, in the city, with all of the lights rolling right over that black glossy paint. So, then I saw this commercial. That was it, I had to have the Camaro. Perfect example of why I chose black and just how good that car looks.

What was the "seal the deal" moment for you?

I got to see the concept car at a car show and was hooked. It took me a few years to convince the wife that we should get one, but she finally agreed after I convinced her to test drive one. That was all it took to make her want one. I never even test drove one, I just knew I wanted it.

Wow! I have never seen that commercial. Thanks for sharing. I thought every bit if commercial footage ever shown on the 5th Gen Camaro had been on C5 a ton of times. Maybe this one has been but I have never managed to see it.

I remember seeing this for the first time and thinking the car was going to be like 100,000$ or something.

Truly super car looks... looks like a million bucks IMO

Can't believe I own one

I always wanted a camaro. A 68 is what I've had my eyes on forever. Then they announced the camaro was coming back, and the look of it was awesome! Saw the concept at an auto show and I knew I wanted one. But never thought it would happen.

I finished paying off my commuter car (chevy aveo) in April 2009, got rear ended in sept 2009 and they wrote off the car. They gave me $9k for it, and that became my down payment on my 2010 RS/2SS 3 years and almost 50,000 km and loving every minute of it.

Same here- But it was at GM Carlisle Pa in 2007. I then had to wait until May of '09
to order the delayed Summit White color. Been smiling for the last 4 years.

I was very late to the party. I had a 2004 CTS-V, then a 2005 CTS-V, then a 2006 300c SRT8 and finally a 2010 CTS-V. One day in my V a Camaro was approaching from the opposite direction. The fascia was different, the hood.....hey wait a minute, that's the new ZL1! The driver downshifted and I heard the burble of the factory exhaust........that was it, I had to have it. The test drive only solidified my resolve. What a car!
