Who wants one but is waiting 2-3 years?

Many of you like myself want the new Cams or have them on order already. Here is my question I want to see a show of peeps who want one but are going to wait awhile before you get one. I have my 4th gen that I love dearly and still hauls like a champ. Please share your thoughts or concerns as to why you will wait or you say screw it give me my cam!

Where's your dealership at? My office is on Tennyson by the tollway. I know there's a Chevy dealer on 121 around Ohio and another around west plano and parkwood.

College killed what savings I had. Unless I win one somehow, I won't end up with one for a bit..

Even if Insurance on a 2SS/RS is only $1470 a year for me @ 22 years old.

Bummer zabo.....yea college prices today are outragious! Man don't even get me started on Insurance......who knows maybe in a few you can get you a used one at a decent price.....I know several people that are looking to do that....my plans are to get a 1SS or heck maybe by then they will have a z-28 which I heard is supposed to have more HP than the new SS will have. Either way if the stars lineup right who knows...

LOL I hear ya. that's the kind of attitude to have. live for the now!




Thanks Phillip, moving here from Baton Rouge. Still getting to know the area, but really liking it so far. Biggest thing I've noticed ont he road so far is that roughly 95% of the drivers stay at or under the speed limit. I'm used to the normal flow of traffic being 10-15mph over the limit.

Thats cool Cap....Big difference for you my friend coming from Baton Rouge to North Texas huh? Alot of things to do here....I have been to alot of parts of the country and I must say North Texas in general has a wide variety of stuff to do.....the only thing we are missing is a beach and some ocean....mountains and snow if you are into that... Driving the speed limit is something the drivers never did....that is until they put more cops on the roads...then the game was over....they were getting people left and right....it was sad and now with the economy the way it is people cannot afford a ticket so they either drive the spped limit or under it withc I don't understand because if you do they can give you a ticket for impeding traffic...it's a money making system for sure. The fastest you can over the speed limit is 5 over.....maybe I need to move to Baton Rouge....

I have an unknown quantity of years before I'll be able to afford one...and then it will probably be a used one.

Actually, ever since I bought my GP GXP in January, I have completely canceled my 5th gen plans. This car is just... just... outstanding in every way. It may not be the fastest car on the road, but with 303 hp and all of the incredible creature comforts in it and all the technology... man... it's incomparable to a new Camaro. If anyone is looking for a used car, I highly recommend a Grand Prix GXP. I even like it much more than the G8 GT and G8 GXP. The backseat headroom and legroom is another thing the 5th gen can't touch. No compromises!

That said, I would like to add a 4th gen to my own personal stable. So that will likely be my next additional car. I'd like my own weekend toy, and that's gotta be an early 4th gen Camaro Z28 or SS. The 5th gen is a far superior Camaro, but I am and have always been in love with the looks of the '93-'97.

I'm waiting to accumulate a larger down payment. Purchase date is still right around where I thought it would be. Early to mid next year. My only problem is the big DECISION. Camaro or Vette It will come down to a lot of test driving. In fact the salesman will probably go insane with all the details that I am going to get nitpicky about. I just need the money at the moment..

I thought about a GXP too, but it doesn't hold a candle to the G8GXP that I recently test drove. The only thing the Grand Prix had over it was the HUD.

HUD isn't an option on it? That sucks. I love mine. I think the gauges on the G8 GXP are way too small to even read, that's the only major negative comment I have about that car. Everything else seems greater than or equal to what I have on my GP though.

Thanks to my GP GXP, I now have three options I would never want a new car without--HUD, sunroof, and heated seats. Even on a warm/mild day, those heated seats really feel good on a sore back with the A/C on.

Guys--if you're ordering a new Camaro, I highly recommend the sunroof. It'll help light up that super dark shady interior.

Waiting so I can pay in cash, interest charges for any kind of credit are insane. I also want to see what the Convertibles look like and am still holding out for a Z28 version later down the line.

I should have 40k saved up by the end of 2011 early 2012. Thankfully my job is not one that can be cut no matter how bad things get. Someone will always need to dial 911 and I'll be there to answer it.
