I feel the vette obviously has the edge on weight, handling, power, and all around performance.

But the Camaro has it on everything else, I feel like it looks cooler/tougher/muscleier/sexier, the interior I feel is miles ahead, the camaro doesnt feel as "dainty", the interior room, etc.

I just love it, they did a great job with the 5th gen.

For me it's the Camaro. When I was car shopping, I could've easily gotten a used Corvette C6 for the same price that I got my Camaro. The reasons I got my car were that 1. I was already in love with the Camaro5 and 2. It needed to be practical. Now I'm not saying the 'vette is impractical, but it's definitely lower than the Camaro, and the roads here in Lebanon are in terrible condition. Plus I like the idea of having rear seats and a usable boot.

The Corvette's are typically faster, handle better, and get the same or better mileage. I love Vettes, but, my favorite car of the many performance cars I have owned was my 1969 Z/28. I was going to get a GS convertible, but, I loved the styling cues of the '69 implemented into the Camaro5, and the Camaro is more comfortable, with better leg room and has somewhat useable rear seats. Also my fully loaded Camaro was almost $20k less than a comparable GS Corvette convertible. My best friends' 427 is incredible though. No comparison in performance. He smokes ZL1’s all day long. If you want supercar type all around performance get a Z06 or ZR1. On the other hand, if you can afford it, my other good friend and colleague has a 2012 Porsche Turbo S and that smokes Z06’s, ZR1’s and 800rwhp Camaro’s all day long from a dig on street tires and gets 24mpg. The Camaro is a nice, good looking cruiser and I have no regrets at this time with my decision. IMHO, to anwser your question finally,a Z06 or ZR1 are more fun from an all around performance standpoint. Good luck with your decision.
That is the craziest basketball hoop I have ever seen!

Have owned several of both...... The Corvette wins in my book.
Comfort, styling, handling and looks.

Had to have a back seat for now.

Don't get me wrong, love my Camaro, but when its time to get back in to a 2 seater, only choice in my book is a vette.

As to the post above about "Chevy's car" bill boards etc.....

They don't need top advertise the Corvette, it has been told to me several times by GM executives...... everyone they build, is or gets sold.

I've been lucky enough to have a friend that currently owns a C6 automatic and her husband previously had a C5 Z06 with twin turbos and they let me drive both of them. While they were fast, handled amazingly and extremely fun to drive, I just couldn't see driving one every day. I'm only 5'11" but it wasn't much fun getting into and crawling out of them. They would be perfect weekend warriors though.

My Camaro (first one I've ever driven and owned) fits me very well. I've always been a Mustang guy and owned several of them but the new body style just hasn't grown on me and actually turned me away from them! The test drive of my 1LE sold me almost instantly.

I had 2 Corvette's, a 62 and an 05 C6. Iliked the C6 till I got my 2010 Camaro SS. Then I didn't drive the Vette much. The 2010 Camaro is my 6th Camnaro, so I guess I'm a Camaro guy. I get more looks and cpmpliments in the SS then I did in the Vette.

At some point in my life I would like to purchase a Corvette Z06 (or if my future pays well enough off, a ZR1) or equivalent but I will always be a "Camaro Guy".

Corvettes are one of my Top 10 favorite cars but the Camaro has a special bond with me, it's a family thing too

Fantastic replies.
I have never owned a Corvette but always loved the way they looked.
The 68-72 Corvette was one of the first car which gave me the wow factor.
When I first saw the 2010 SS in person I could not believe what a beautiful car it is.
Even the wife which does not care about cars commented what a pretty car it was.
With the new 2014 Stingray being released soon I seriously thinking about getting one.
I also love them both.
Thanks everybody for the nice replies.
Cheers.

I bought a new Corvette Z51 in 2007 and kept it up until my 2012 Camaro SS 45th AE. They're neat cars but I wouldn't ever consider buying another one. With cars like the 1LE & ZL1 the only real bonus to a Vette is high speed abilities which for most people doesn't matter. The build quality was no better than my 2005 Cobalt SS/SC and the paint was terrible. I liked the simplicity of the interior and the non-Bose stereo but the seats were junk.

Corvette is by far the better vehicle, and I wish I could've picked one up, but I needed a back seat. Corvette will be the next car tho.

I sold a 2 year old Vette to buy the Camaro. I've had the Camaro almost four years now. No regrets. To me, the Vette was just a little too much of a good thing. The Camaro is a much better daily driver.
