I have an e-mail set up for those that wish to start a middle TN. generation club. It's at midtngen5@yahoo.com I am also in the process of setting up a Facebook page for us. Having problems with the name but will have it worked out soon. I wanted MidTNgen5 on Facebook but it won't accept the name and the administrator is working on it. I'll be at the Murfreesboro cruise-in tonight if anyone wants to come!

Aww, come on guys. Leaving out the gen 4s?
We are just the older brother.
Anyways, I'm representing the little town of Thompsons Station, 15 minutes south of Franklin.
So far, I've only seen a Red Jewel, a Black, and a Rally Yellow. I'd love to see more though.
I have a buddy with another 4th gen that I know would go with me to a few shows/meets.

guys, i welcome any camaro to any of the sites we go to.
4th gen, 1st gen, it doesn't matter....
point is, we all enjoy ownership and pride in our cars...
I sat last night and thought of how lucky i was to own several different years of camaros. i have had a 68,69,73,75,95,98 and now the 2010 camaro.
I've met a lot of nice people on here and got to talk to a lot of folks about our passion for the car. I don't think anyone should look down on anyone who doesn't own the new 5th gen car. I still love the 1st gens, but i absolutely love my new car. I live in Maryville, Tn and would love to get an east tn group of guys that can hang out and just share our passion of the car.
I am married with a great wife and son, i just turned 40 in July and for the 1st time in many years, i feel fairly young again. Guys, don't forget, we're only here for a little while, so enjoy the ride and be humble when u go out in your rides.............we're lucky to have 'em....

Yea to me it is starting to look like the 5th gen owners (99.999%) of them are elitists. It feels like most of them feel as though their car fell out of the sky and has no relation to the other generations. You can tell most of the people on this site JUST got into cars and the Camaro is it for them. They barely know how to check their oil. They seem to mostly ONLY meet up with other 5th gen owners. And think about it... FOR WHAT? The only thing those people have in common with each other is that they own the same damn car with maybe different paint. Its kinda like some owners who say they only wave at other ls1 owners but if its a 6 they won't wave on the road. I just think some stuff people do is stupid. I'm the type of person who can be cool with almost anyone. I don't care if you drive a busted ass civic or a Bugatti Veyron. If you're cool, then you're cool. If you're not cool, don't worry I'll stay away from you.

I don't get off standing in a parking lot talking about cars anymore. I prefer driving and racing anyway.

I’m in for the car club. I only live an hour from Nashville in Clarksville and my wife works up there so it wouldn’t be that long of a drive. Mine should be here in the next couple of weeks i got a TPW of 8/31. Anyone know about how long after it’s built it takes to get delivered in our area. I’m coming home on leave from the desert the same week it gets built and am hoping to take delivery before I have to go back. If not I’m sure the wife will have fun driving it around getting it broken in for me.

Not hardly "elitists"... In fact most of the owners of 5th gens have owned Camaros in the past. I just sold my restored and "BUILT" (by myself) 4th gen Z28 to buy this car. I have owned several Camaros in the past and have waited for years for this one to finally come out. I only want to start a 5th gen club to be able to get ideas from other owners as this car is so new and has many unanswered questions and mods that a group like this would be very helpful! Did not want to offend other gens. owners and did not mean only gen5s can get together. But a local forum with people with a commonality just makes sense! You know, there is a club for all F-bodies in middle TN, MTFBA so why would we start a club that would compete with them???

I have drag raced every one of my Camaro's in the past and as recently as last season with my 4th gen. Just not ready to put this machine on the track yet.. The majority of the 5th gen owners are 45 years old and up and may be past wanting to race theirs every week. This is a pretty big investment for us and maybe not everyone is ready to race them. Mine will see the track one day, but not now! For you to say we are elitists and most of us "just got into cars" is totally untrue!
Did you just get your feelings hurt that no one took you up on the offer of a race. Hell, most of these guys are still waiting for their cars. And the ones that do have their cars are probably a little more mature...

the first SS i saw back in may was in mt juliet. the guy brought it to the cruise-in & almost seemed surprised and annoyed that everybody would be asking about his car. he was pretty short with everybody & from what he did say, he obviously didn't really know much about it. he even tried to argue that it had the RS package (that's what his dealer told him, so it had to be true) when it obviously didn't & i told him so by explaining what the differences were.

Mtfba is about half douches lol... You don't need a club to get ideas. All you need is the internet. I am a bit of a loner and have a full bolt-on SS which is constantly improving. I like to look stuff up and do it my self. The ones who do have their cars are a little more mature than to.... WHAT? Unclear on that part. Camaros are made to take a beating, look at mine

YES, the majority of the new camaro owners on camaro5 are acting brand new. Just click new posts and you will see some of the, ahem, most inexperienced and strange looking questions and threads like: Will my car go any faster if I wash it in April vs October, or I got my first bug on my windshield and so on. Some people ask some strange questions.

btw I wasn't pin pointing anyone with the elitist thing, but if the shoe fits wear it. It is good to see a few out with them at the track on youtube. One day I'll get to smoke one of you guys... Its just a matter of time

I guess there's too much mid-life crisis and too little I beat a ______ in here. These are Camaros not Cadillacs.

Wow...I see why your a loner. Not much humility in this post.

So what if people ask weird questions, its a forum, there are hear to learn from more experienced members, and shoot the breeze about cars. If anyone on here is an elitist, sounds like you need to look in the mirror...are you sick? Sounds like you need a cardiologist, because a change of heart is in order.

You have a car that only traps 88mph in the 1/8th and you're calling people out to drag race?

yes i am and you're a pony boy on a camaro site but its all good. Just looking to have a good time at the track and if you want to bring your slobra, you'll be the first stang to beat me after the year,,, lets call it a '98 which was a cobra with a procharger/heads/cam/gears/radials Otherwise, I'm starting to get sick of running stangs. I figure the new maros will be a much better challenge. Why don't you bring your's out on street tires(not drag radials) and run me? Hell bring radials I don't care but it'll be more fun for me if you're on street tires.

There's this guy at the track with a fox body and 5.8 badges on the sides running on radials. We've run twice. During bracket racing he redlighted and so I won. The 2nd time he red lighted too lol, but I still ran him down on radials with my street tires. This was a heads/cam/radial car. I'd like to run you on street tires. With little to no prep on that track and you on real street tires, I bet I could take your 70rwhp cobra

Somebody has to keep the riff-raff honest.

But to your point, you can look to have fun at the track without trying to shame someone else into joining you. Instead of, "looks like we only have 1 racer in this thread... " or "Mtfba is about half douches" it might have been better if you simply said something like, "Hey guys, now that a lot of folks in the area are getting their Camaro's, why don't we try to get together at the track one day?" That might encourage more folks to participate than basically calling them all pansy's because they choose not to beat on their brand new and pretty much untested vehicles.

Just a thought.

I don't have a Cobra, but I'm down on hitting the track sometime to get a good baseline on it before I start modding it. Better yet, maybe you can run my wife in her '65 and if you beat her, then you can step up to the Shelby.

I called no one a pansy... But next time I need something translated from my head to these people I'll be sure to pm you the details and let you do it for me. Besides, 99% of people on here's junk is under warranty unlike my junk. What have you and they got to lose?

and better yet, I'll race your wife's '65 in my wife's bone stock '00gt and make mustangs look really bad lmao

I wasn't trying to make a joke, I think you in your car and she in hers would make a great race on street tires. Last time she took it to the hill (about a year ago) it ran 8.52 @ 87.55mph.
