Soo many Camaros everywhere!

So here I am in the USA. Elko, NV currently. These Camaros are everywhere you look.

In Sweden, where I come from, they are very rare and considered exclusive cars by the many.

How is it here in USA? Is the Camaro to be considered as a "normal car" or how do you guys look at it?

And yeah... Seeing these beauty cars everywhere each day makes me miss my love at home... The Camaro that is!

Hey - glad your enjoying ur visit. I see a lot of camaros out and around and I try to park next to them whenever I see them. It's not uncommon for me to see a couple people walk out of their way to check out camaros when they are parked together. Still a special car here too

There everywhere, far from rare. There an average priced car so they sell well. The only way to seperate from the masses is to make it your own.
Enjoy your visit.

I barely see any in my town which is good for me But like he said, you gotta make it your own; mod mod mod, to stand out if you are in a town with a lot of camaros.

Have owned my Camaro for over a year and it still hasn't lost that "it" factor to me. Whenever I see another on the road I still do the head turn. Camaros have always been "my" car though since ever and very special to my family

Camaros are common in the US just like how BMW and Benz are common in Germany, the same cars are more affordable before getting hit by import tax.

I know even the V6 in China cost 80k dollars equivalent, and the SS would be somewhere around 150k if u can even get one, thanks to the pollution restrictions. These cars also ALWAYS being sold above MSRP because the demand is way higher than the limited supply.

I live in a town of about 20,000 people and I've seen six of them counting mine. One of them is a ZL1. There's also a guy who lives near me who has a hugger orange '69 Z28 with white stripes and a 5th gen with the same color combo.

Welcome to the USA! 5th gen Camaros are everywhere here in Tucson, AZ. Even though they are not rare, it's always cool to see them. I'm willing to bet most of the Camaro population is in the southern states (where the weather is typically good year round). Camaros are probably rare in the northern states, especially in the winter.
BTW, it must be cool to have a 45th Anniversary Camaro in Sweden. You must get questions and looks everywhere you go.

I almost always see a few every day. Pretty common out here. Not many V8's, though.

I see em all the time. I wish I saw them less. I mean I'm glad they're selling and all, I would just rather the car be less common.

It all depends on your own taste and what you consider to be a great car. Where you live may have something to do with it also, the bigger the town the more you see. I live in Lansing, MI and they are not selling very well. I've seen the same one at a dealer for over a year. I doubt the 'Vettes are selling well either. Bad economy, one reason. Though, I do see a few per week. I see Vettes as well, MBs Beemers, and Hummers too. I think they are one of the best cars you can buy, I also have wanted one since I was a kid back in the 60's. I can't say that about the Mustangs or Chargers or Challengers. But that's just me. I'd still like to get a '62 'Vette, but that seems very remote, I doubt I'll ever get one.

Not many in my neck of the woods. My dealer has had the same Camaros on the lot since the beginning of the year. He also has a beautiful 2010 IOM SS that has been there for over six months with low mileage (17,000) that won't move. My town is an upper middleclass town. Not many Vettes either around town. It might be a northern cold weather thing.
