Wow that sucks, but the car can be replaced you and your wife can't. Glad to hear the other woman is Ok as well. Everyone makes stupid mistakes, glad to hear no one was KIA.

Look for a SS 1Le maybe?

I must admit I'm really missing my ride!!

Repair costs were estimated over $24K. Since resale is high and it only has 17K miles my buy-out is just over $30K + sales tax. Once my loan balance is cleared I'll get a sizeable equity check to save toward whatever performance car I purchase later next year. For right now I'm researching cheap lease deals to get me through the winter. Looking into ATS, CTS coupe, Regal Turbo, Impala, or possibly even a Volt. I'm hoping they top-off my GM card points soon and incentives improve after the holidays. Base C7 Vette 7spd is the ultimate goal to replace my Camaro once supply meets demand and pricing settles down some.

I THANK your team for building such a SOLID & SAFE machine.


I was unaware at purchase but I can truly attest to the strength of this car.

"The 5th gen Camaro was the FIRST car in North America to ever get the 5 star safety rating! Clearly it's well deserved! The crash tested one is in the GM museum."

Glad you're ok. I work in the Swiftwater area here in the Poconos and I get worried coming up here myself (1.5 hrs away) the temps always drop 10 degrees compared to where I live and rain by me can mean snow and Ice up here. At least you are ok and like others have said, material things can be replaced.

Now on another note, can you pull the break system off and give it to me? I want to upgrade my breaks on my 2LT but don't want to spend thousands on it lol

Ouch, Im sorry to hear that. I understand how safe these cars are, having totaled one myself.

I was just in the Poconos last weekend and driving the Camaro through them tight hills was not fun, I recommend observing or going under the speed limit.

On a side note, I'd love to come snag the GFX off your Camaro.. maybe leave the impound unlocked..

Glad you're ok! The Camaro is well designed!

I rented an Impala, and was rather impressed. It even had a better interior than my Camaro…

OT: I can't help but chuckle at this pic. It looks like it was taken right out of a Disney movie… LOL!

GM makes incredibly safe cars, far more safe than most of the other brands, its something that not talked about nearly enough.

Best wishes on your full recovery.

Wow! That was an awful accident but I am very glad you & your wife came out okay. I know you miss your nice Camaro. There are many very lightly used Camaros out there. I bet you could search (or have a dealer search for you) around & find one with very few miles on it very close to the same as the one you had. Just a thought.

I'd like to think I'll never experience such an accident EVER again so I'm not fixating on safety in my next purchase. However I am also considering a cheap lease Camaro LS stick in the new Red Rock Metallic @ $229/mo.

IMO airbags are over-rated. If you were both wearing your belts in that crash you both would be fine, and the car would be an easy fix. But now thanks to those belts your car is totaled.
Glad you are fine, sorry for the Camaro.

This doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

First of all your speculating on a crash that happened in the past, with static variables that can no longer be changed. Which means your opinion is baseless and unfounded.

Also, airbags deploying doesn't "total" your car.

Furthermore, I'd love to see any supporting evidence that airbags are ineffective.

Thanks.
