Show me another car that has luxury of a LT2 for around $30k with +300hp and is sexier than ponrstar dancer.
Whats an LT2

I was at a car show, this guy & his wife walk up, look at my car for a couple minutes then he comes up to me and tells me he doesn't like the hood, hash marks and would have painted the wheels red. Then starts to draw a line with his finger down the side of my car on how he would put a stripe there. I tell him to stop F-ing dragging your finger down the side of my car and go buy his own camaro and F*** it up with the stupid ideas you just told me about.

We had other words but I'm not gonna go into the rest of it.

I get the same thing all the time.
Them: Oh its only V-6
Me: Yap its only a V-6.
Them: Man you should of goten the V-8
Me: when you drive to and from work every day and you got to go through downtown Los Angeles and you cant get out of 1st and/or 2nd gear (5to15mph) what dose it matter if it 4,6,8,10 or12 cylinders. and some of the guys who i know have the SS, They go almost 100mil less then i do per tank. So why would i get a V-8. oh and this V-6 has 312HP.
Them: Oh. and they walk away without a word.

I have gotten the “nice Mustang” a couple of times, but they have been from girls who are not car people and probably don’t know the difference so I have said thank you and ignored it.
I work at a place where almost everyone drives nice cars including BMW, Porsche, Mercedes and all kinds of exotic cars and almost everyone of those people have stopped me in the hall to ask about my Camaro. My car is now 2 years old and people are still asking about it. I never had that happen before.

I always tell those peeps I have 324 HP.....wanna race?

98% just laugh as they get the point. Most are surprised to hear the V6 has that much HP from the factory!


About the shift questions...I still say yes...I can tap shift! If they ask whats that I tell them to line up and let me show you!

Been there, heard that... mainly from the Union Work Force. I am in Management as well. The "Car Guys" in Management love the car and ask me about it all the time though.

I have heard some of the back-handed comments about Auto's as well, even though I have a Manual. Mainly that, if it's a Muscle Car, it needs to be a Manual!

Some kid said, "It's just an RS"

But to make up for that tonight while getting some ice cream at this cool 50s style place a kid walked up to me and said "That's my dream car." And I immediately responded, "Yep, it is my dream car too."

It's a 376.

Is that a big block?
No, a small block. Punched out 350. 426HP.

I'll bet it uses a lot of gas.
I can blow some fuel through when I want.

Is it a big block?

I purchased my camaro about 3 weeks ago and never encountered a negative comment. All positive so far. I remember I was driving in a residential neighborhood in LA and this ghetto black guy gave me the thumbs up while shaking his head. Then I sped off. Almost the best feeling lol.

Then it had P.S- Responsible people drive cars like hybrids and do the best we can to keep the planet clean... it ALMOST made me feel guilty until I got in and fired up the engine, a few revs and the note was forgotten.

I seen a picture one time on the net of a 4th gen camaro all supped up, sitting in front of a nuclear plant or something with the smoke stacks and everything and the caption said "f*** emissions". That's what you story reminded me of.

I have been in conversations about the economy and being affordable stuff with my boss (who obviously makes more money than me) and a couple of other coworkers. we got to the subject of traveling for the company and how the money spent on a trip had to come out of our pockets and then we get reimbursed, I asked my boss why he dont just rent a car for one of his trips, and his comment was"Heck I live paycheck to paycheck! I can barely afford my own payments on my car let alone all my other bills........Besides that-I AINT THE ONE DRIVING A BRAND NEW CAMARO AROUND HERE!"
He acts like the Camaro is an expensive car, I told him from the begining that I bought the cheaper model, but I guess he figures it was still pricey. I told him it isn't any more expensive than his KIA Sorento.
