I'm sick of that crap. People need to be more open to other people's likes and dislikes. If you don't like something, don't be an ass about it and be disrespectful to the person. Just move on. If you do like it, say you do and go on....but please...don't be a jerk.

Tell them your car's favorite snack is rice, and to STFU! The V6 version is the best $23-$30k(ish, depending on options of course!) that you can spend, for the style, performance, and sheer attitude!

They can all blow it out their exhaust ports Ordered a 2SS, but you'll never hear me disrespecting our v6 brothers and sisters!

Wow..I'm a v8 guy, but the 5th gen v6 breaks the mold when it comes to sixers. You have a great car that can give many v8's a run for their money..I'd just laugh at them if I were you

There are just some people who are just that way. My co-worker for example has a 1965 Mustang, looks great, but when people first go up to her enthusiastically and say "What kind of engine you got?" and she answers the "V6" then it is like "oh.. that sucks" then they end the conversation.

Then I have my friend who told me "No v8 = fail" but yet I laugh as he doesn't know how to drive a stick. To me a "V8 auto = fail"

To me I didn't order a camaro for the muscle, I wanted a cool car to drive. I also figure that my 2lt will wind up being a daily driver, so I got the V6 manual.

I also thought of a good response to someone saying "Why did you only get the V6" to which I told someone already who was trying to get me to get the V8. I simply said "I'm secure"

I'm done with all those morons that don't know any better!
I don't have to justify my Camaro to no one, I say F them all!

I also grew up in the 80's and owned two v6 Camaros a 1984, 1988 RS an a 1992 Z28 fully loaded with a 5.7L tune port 350 motor (245 Hp) and the new V6 is faster than my 1992 Z28

Bottom line, it's a statement just to be buying a new car in this bad economy even more a Camaro! So they can kiss it.

In 5 months and 15,000 miles with Number 3, I was never asked more than what engine it had, but never the way you have been asked.

Oh, one guy did ask it if was a Ferrari..................

Yesterday when someone asked which engine I got, I answered "the V6, the one from the Cadillac." That seemed to impress them, so I'll stick with that.
1. No, I do not have any strong opinions about the Monte Carlo.
2. Yes, I know what my name looks like.
3. Yes, but the medication helps immensely.

The same who slams your car then jumps into there ford tempo on the way home jealous as hell. This stuff is stupid really. Myself i think the v6 camaro is an insane value its an amazing ride but for me i cant get past the sound of the v6. I heard one the other day and first thing i thought was that just sounds wrong i cant live with that so its the 1ss for me. Im old school i cant change my ways but no matter u have a great ride your happy with it who cares what others think u pay the note on it not them.

Don't worry, you can't win either way. I have an SS, but get trouble for it not being a manual. Back when I had my V6 99' Firebird, I got trouble for it not being a V8.

Anybody putting down the V6 must not have driven one.

I just spent several hours driving a rental 1LT on Rt 1 south of Carmel. Man oh man was that fun! That car can haul some ass, and I'm sure it out-performs the SS in the curves.

A few bolt-ons, and that car is going to be friggin' wicked.

WTF? I'm starting to get an inadequacy complex already.

I was deciding between the 2LT and a 2SS, and I decided to go with the 2LT for a few reasons:

1) Several thousand cheaper, better gas mileage, and a cheaper insurance rate (and with a family of 5, the overall savings is a big deal)
2) PLENTY of power in the 2LT
3) I am hoping to pass this car down to my kiddo in three years, and she absolutely won't need an SS or the insurance rates to go with it (and probably even this car has a little too much juice for a new driver)

Has anyone else with a V6 Camaro had the same scenario come up regularly? What do you say to the people who ask? The guy who asked me about it today on the golf course drives a Mustang GT that's a couple years old. My dad told him I had picked up my Camaro yesterday, and he asked the magic question. When I told him I got the V6, he had this disappointed look on his face and said "ohhhh.....well, I'm sure it is still pretty nice." I responded "Yeah, I really like it, and from what I've heard, it will smoke a Mustang." Heh.
No offense but if you knew comments like this would bother you why not get the V8 in the first place? You had to know they would come.
