Consider switching?

Anyone getting tired of the order/production process considering switching to a different car? I'm thinking about a mustang or a 370Z... what about you guys?

dude its a new car there isnt production woes, its just the demand. Getting the mustang will just be settling in my opinion. Trust me once you get the camaro you will be glad you waited. Not just Gm but the country needs us to buy american. I dont know about anybody else but im sure that the car companies going to the shitter has something to do with our economy, im not saying all of it, but Im guessing its a pretty big percentage.

If you don't really love the Camaro, just get what you want. Everyone knew there would be growing pains with this process and this car. The true guys will stick it out because they know whats at the end.

That said, NOTHING has the allure of this new Camaro. If you're thinking of switching because you don't want to wait, think about this:

What will you think when you get one of the aforementioned products and it's time for you Camaro to come in? Will you regret not waiting? If it's what you really want, don't settle for less. I wouldn't.

I was just gonna say that!!! If you want a new car now, go buy something sitting on a dealers lot and you can get it for less than MSRP. Myself, I continue to wait!!!! and Wait.......and Wait.....

Like a lot here, ordered in Oct and waited for 7 months for mine...more have waited 8, 9 or even still sitting here waiting for their car!

Like the last two have said, if you want a new car go grab one up as you'll get a great deal right now...but if you WANT a Camaro, nothing else will satisfy!

I will wait as long as it takes, there is no way I will get something else just because I don't like the wait. Any other car is just that, something else.

There was no other choice for me. Had the Camaro not come back to life, I would have continued to drive my boring sedan believing there was no other cars out there anymore. But then came Camaro, and now I love my car again. I would not have purchased a Mustang, Challenger, 370Z or even a Corvette in place of this car. This truly is the only car for me. I think if you love it, you wait. If you just want any new car...go for it.

I didn't need a new car, but I had to have THIS new car.

just wait. sad but i was in your shoes i debated on the 370z, bmw m3, nissan gtr, but have to say this is new diff body style worth the money and the wait i enjoy it and am glad i waited. one reason i went with it cause i like the 69 models but couldn't fork up the cash for a classic and then here comes a retro one in 2010 so i got it.

I did the switch. I got tired of waiting for my order and the price on the Shelby GT500 have come down to where I can afford one. I am much happier with my choice. i could not get past the issues with the Camaro(GM bankruptcy, manual transmission issues, GMs preorder system). The Shelby is just more of a special car.

This pic just remainds me of how plain jane the mustangs look. I mean damn why didn't they alter the shelby's a lot more, they just still look like a GT, a little worst actually to me.

I'll tell you that you will regret and I mean regret buying something else just because you are in the I WANT IT NOW mode. I almost switched to a G35 coupe because I was in that mode and then I slapped myself and said no and came to realize that I knew about this car coming out back in 2005 and knew I would get one so why switch now when its here just because you want it now. It's not worth switching please believe that, I have seen 5 G35 coupes while driving my Maro and each time I say damn I'm glad I stuck it out and waited. YOU WILL LIVE TO REGRET IT, DON'T DO IT keep the faith brother and you will be glad you did.

That's funny. Looks like you drive a GTO. The plainest muscle car out there. To each his own. If they make a z28(they won't), they would change the same things that were changed on the Shelby(hood, front, wheels, and back)The newness will wear off the new Camaro. They have already made more Camaros that the 3 year production run of the Shelby.
I would have had a Camaro if GM did not have a mess up the ordering system. Driving the Shelby everyday puts a smile on my face. I would not trade that for anything.

Glad I waited... Not as long as others waited, But I had to have the IBM 2SS/RS, so I could not order until I knew they released that color for the SS's.
Looking back now, didn't seem so long of a wait...or was it...Hmmm

Naw I don't own that GTO anymore that was just to hold me over until this baby came out. Still I only paid 30 for the GTO not close to 50 like most GT500 that really don't look to much better then the GTO. A 500 hp car should look way more aggresive. I can admit that GM screwed the styling of the GTO up but I bet you aren't willing to say that about your GT500 because then you will feel you spent too much money for a car that is somewhat incomplete.

I couldnt wait for the Vert so I bought a Solstice GXP to hold me over. If you can wait a year till all the bugs are ironed out and the cars are on dealer lots. Youll pay a lot less and be happier in the long run. Name:  may 09 010.jpg
