One day i stopped by my buddies wheel shop to BS with him, i do it quite often and everytime time i do everyone hears me pulling in and they all walk outside and gawk

Anyways, i get out and walk inside for a while and visit. When i walk outside one of his newer employees is standing outside still looking and he says "hey man, where do you work to afford this sh!t?" I say " i work at a glass manufacturing plant man" he says " ya but still, you cant make enough to afford this" i just facepalmed, yes i actually facepalmed, shook my head and said " i make decent money man, you dont have to be a millionaire to afford a camaro" he looked at me bewildered and i got in my car and left.

Ugh, a BMW... People say that those who drive BMWs are the ultimate pricks. I used to think that was just a stereotype. But lately it's proving to be true, judging by how they drive in traffic and how they park.

My daughter works as a graduate assistant and one of the other GAs asked her what kind of car she drives. When she said a Camaro, he went off on a rant about "people who drive Camaros." When she told him that her dad and uncle also own Camaros, he said, and I quote: "Oh, your whole family are douche bags."

WTF?

I love my car so I just laugh and think "jealous" if anyone says anything negative.

Mostly, though, all comments have been really positive. My SRT friends are dying to race me at the track. Got pulled over the second day I had it and the cop LOVED it so much he said he [jokingly] wanted a turn driving it, told me where to go so I can fly without being pulled over, gave advice on brakes, and let me go without even running anything. I think he just wanted to see the car. lol
The saying should be, "Mopar is NO CAR". I always joked that MoPar meant you always need More Parts to keep it running.

We went out to dinner and was waiting to get seated. I was listening to a couple of guys talking and one of them asked the other if he seen the black & gold Camaro in the lot to which he responded he had seen it. Then the guy says "I think the new Camaro's are butt ugly." The other guy said "I don't think they are to bad, actually I kind of like them."

Butt ugly huh.....must be a Mustang owner!

I was at a local cruise night a couple of months ago, as i was cruising through the middle of town, crowds of people on both sides of me, to my left i hear this obnoxious guy yelling " can that mustang break it loose?! Can that mustang break it loose?! " then a guy yells from my right side "its a camaro dumbass!"

So i come to a complete stop, punch it, spin the tires for about 8 seconds with the white smoke rolling. As soon as i let off i hear the guy on the left again " aaaaaaaaahhhh, my f***ing ears!" Then i hear someone on the right " hahahaha, you asked for it, you got it!" That made it totally worth it

The other day a kid says to me, nice car why didn't you get the 45th it has the big block 455, my neighbor has one and that's what he told me? I said what are you talking about lol. Don't believe everything your neighbor is filling your ears with.

Could have at least said 454.

I have had nothing but compliments about mine. My beef is that around here (SE NC) hardly anyone in other pony cars or even Camaros will return a wave. This is surprising since most everybody around here is friendly all the time. Back in the 60's when I was driving MG's and Healy's everybody in a sports car would wave regardless of the make of their car or yours. I miss that! Sad.

Cubic ft????? I think you mean cubic inches. 378 cu ft would be 653,184 cubic inches.
