Thumbs up from the Mercedes tech!

Went to get OrangeVert checked out at the Chevy dealer today, and thought I'd stop by the Mercedes dealer to check out their 2014 offerings.

Leaving, I'm backing out of the parking space when one of the Mercedes techs (in a customer's car) gives me the thumbs-up and says "Nice car, by the way!"

Priceless! There is something special about the 5th Gen Camaro!

I have taken my SS several times to the local BMW dealership to buy parts (all too often) for my '01 740i SWB Sport. There is always someone checking it out in the parking lot when I go to leave.

In addition to other thumbs up or "nice car" shouts....it seems like kids in school buses really love the camaros. I get lots of waves from them.

Yes, Kids in school buses go crazy for the Camaro! Many times I get behind my daughters school bus and all her friends be like "Kelly there goes your mom".

Exactly, I get a lot of looks from people when I empty my bank account for maintenance on my Clk, ha ha. But the tables turn when I pass by a SLS on the lot!

Yes, the Camaro is a very cool, great looking car for the money and I enjoy mine. But let's not pretend it's in the same ballpark as a Merceded SLS or a BMW M6!

BMW M6 Boring old man car. I see tons of them. They are far more common than my ZL1 and it is hard to believe they cost 100K +.

The SLS is very cool and far more rare. They do look mean. Coolest new cars I have seen recently was a Mercedes SLR McLaren and a Porsche Carrera GT.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_Carrera_GT

Funny story. I was stuck in traffic with a Ferrari 458 Italia in the lane beside me. I look over to see the driver taking photos of my ZL1 with his phone. Was kind of flattering to think a guy with a 200K + Ferrari would consider a crappy Camaro to be pic worthy. On the other side the 458 sure was pretty and sounded mean.

On a road trip last weekend with NorCal Camaros, we went up the coast along hwy 1 through a bunch of small towns. I swear each town stopped in the streets as the 5 of us rolled through. They were all staring and rubber necking.
Even before we started just leaving the parking lot there were a bunch of kids going to the park nearby and staring at us and one even walked in to a pole
Permigrin was big for all 5 of us.

+1

I have no interest in either of those cars. You're either a Gen5 Camaro guy or your not. I could own either one of those cars but... don't care to. Love my sexy ass-kickin' Camaro!

That is a BEAUTIFUL car... I love E350s and the new S550. Don't get me wrong though, I love just about every car mercedes has available, though. (not the sprinter... NOOOO )
