Meh, vettes have never been my style. Far to refined. I'd get the camaro many times before a vet. I don't really like their body stylings either, never have.

I like seat of my pants all over the place action. Guess I need to get a trophy truck and race the baja.

Would love a vette, but can't bring myself to pay $70k CAD for a bare bones base model. I'd rather have a shelby or a cayman -- more practical cars, and arguable better $/performance for their respective strengths.

That said, if you negotiate wisely, as per the previous commenters, you could get yourself a really sweet 2009 corvette deal... let them sweat a bit.

Sadly i don't think we'll see surplus camaros until spring 2010 given the low production output + demand + q/c issues. You're probably better off stalling your purchase 6-12 months if you can be patient.

The 1lt vette has the same, if not better, features that you will actually use than a Camaro 2SS and is a far superior performer.

Spend a little extra and get the Corvette.

I just sold my 2007 1LT black C6 M6 coupe for the Camaro. I have not driven a SS yet but so what. I drove a 1LT Camaro and i know i love how it drives and feels. I sat in several 2SS/2LT cars so I know the seats are far superior to the base seats in the base Corvette but... don't kid yourself:

#1 a "base" Camaro and a "base" Corvette are not the same. Most desired options are in the 1LT Corvette. The rest is BS. I didn;t even have the Z51 pkg but you know what, you don;t need it. 99.9% of drives won't/couldn't drive even a base corvette to its limit in stock form. I know I coldn't.

#2 a Camaro is a muscle/pony car. A Corvette is a SPORTS car. It will out run, out corner, out stop, out perform in all ways a Camaro.

#3 With the Corvette comes some bad stereotypes... daddys car, penis envy, cocky ass...etc. I am only 32 and somethimes hated driving the corvette b/c of this. just be prepared if you get a corvette...

I tapped out of Corvette ownership after having a 67 coupe, a 92 coupe, a 95 coupe, a 2000 coupe and a 2007 coupe for the camaro for several reason...

-I have 2 other Camaros and want all 5.
-The new Camaro is totally bad ass looking and so comfortable.
-The Corvette many be faster but seriously do I need 192 mph at my disposal? I think 155 is pleanty.
-The non-sport seats in the C6 SUCK!
-I was sick of black
-and on and on

This question has no answer. They are differnt. Utopia would be both but I can't afford that. In the end, you can't go wrong with eitehr on.

Camaro definitely steals the show this year and maybe next. With that said the Vette will be faster and handle better, due to its weight and suspension. But If you ask me, not being biased the camaro looks better hands down.

but...

That may wear off. Corvettes are timeless. When the Camaro is mainstream, the Corvette may steal the show back but for now...



PS... after 1 week without the C6 and no Camaro yet, I do not miss the corvette at all! Just patiently waiting for the Camaro. The week of 8/3 may pan out to be very good. The IROC is going in to get the tranny fixed on the 4th so she should be back on the road. Tranny acted up on Power Tour 2009 and has been laid up since June.

I have a camaro on order. Unfortunately, i found a 2008 Black/Black MN6 LS3 Vette for the same price as a new Camaro 2SS. I'm gonna take it. Camaro is just taking way too long to get produced.

I would take the camaro but that is because I have to have more than 2 seats, but I was at my local dealer and let me tell you a lady had just bought a '10 Camaro 2SS in black with the black factory 21's and a body kit with 900 miles that she was trading in because she wanted a Vette.

That is an interesting comment about the stereotypes, and I think you are right. I don't have a corvette but nobody blinks when someone pulls up in a $70k lexus or bmw, but somehow guys in a $50k corvette are trying to make up for something or prove something to others. Especially if you are a young guy I think people look at you funny. Not that it would stop me from buying one if I wanted to either way but a good point.

To me it comes down to the number of seats and the cost. For a short time the vette is relatively cheap and there are no used/excess camaros around but that won't last long. 6 months from now the corvette premium will be back, so if you want one, now is a good time!

If you even have the option of owning the vette (you don't need the rear seats, ie; no kids) do it. A Camaro and a Corvette are two completely different cars. I love my Camaro as much as the next guy but how many times have you heard a Corvette owner talk about 'when they get a Camaro'? Now how many times have you heard a Camaro owner talk about 'when they get a Corvette'? Exactly.

This is kind of where I am now. I have a 96 Corvette "Collectors Edition" LT4 coupe for my "fun car". My commuter car is a 07 Mazda 3 and we also have my dad's old Explorer and my wife's VW Passat as the "family car". 4 cars for 2 people (our daughter is 2).

What I am seriously considering is selling the Corvette and ordering/buying a Camaro (undecided on LT or SS) and trading in the Mazda to consolidate things: fun daily driver. But I fear "missing" the Corvette (bought it used 3 years ago) and that the Camaro won't quite fill the same need.

On the other hand, we don't need this many cars, would have overall reduced insurance and licensing expenses, etc. Parking space would improve. And how often does the Corvette get driven? And DRIVEN? Not much. Even the Camaro V6 is PLENTY of power for any fun driving on the street. And the Vette needs lots of tinkering due to its age, is a bit tough to climb in and out of, cannot carry the little one in an emergency, is NEVER driven by the wife, etc., etc., etc.

So, in practical terms, the Camaro makes a lot of sense. But will I miss the Corvette too much? (BTW...just before I bought the Vette, I had nearly purchased a Mustang Cobra a couple of times).

Rob
