Should I?

I'm thinking of getting a second Camaro - 2SS/RS IBM
I already have a VR, but do you think I should get something different than this? Or a different color?
I just really like IBM and ABM, but i think ABM would get old after a while...
Just need some input.
Thanks

The only problem is, it would kick the Tahoe out of the garage...
Not very pleasant to sit on a hot black leather seat at 5:00 when the sun is beating down on your car...
By the way: the wife and I would just share both...
I could always build another garage while I'm waiting for the new Cammy though
I'm babbling; I'll stop.

My wife wants to take it out on weekends when I'm usually in mine - this way she could just take whichever one is available.

I say go for a nice used grand prix as your second car. they are a nice car and would be a good backup car. Besides. then you can have the diversity of front wheel drive as well as your rear wheel camaro.

I thought about getting a second one with the L99 Auto for the days that I'm feely lazy. Sometimes it great just to put her in drive and mash the go pedal. Not saying I could afford to do it though.

However in 2 years when the convertible comes out I might just buy a 2nd Camaro convertible with the auto for my easy top down cruiser and keep my 2010 for the fun manual and cool roof line.

I wish I had this dilema. Sometimes I wish I wasn't in the process of buying a house. Can someone buy a second one and give one to me? Please? I'll be your best friend. LOL!

I'd love to get a Vette, but I can't talk my wife into it. (She says we'd need a backseat for both depending on who gets to take the baby. She's also not comfortable driving one.)
I'll talk to her later today about it.

My wife wants one now. She is thinking about a convertable with opposite colors as what we already have. Opposite for us would be white with red stripes. Maybe get a Camaro with opposite colors than what you have.

Just talked to her...
She decided she wants...


























a John Cooper Works Mini Cooper Convertible.
Not that this is such a bad thing, but it's actually more expensive, less exotic, and I think it would be really cool to have 2 Camaros...
I'll try to talk her into a Camaro again. I'll get back to you later

Good news.
She agreed to get a Camaro. Were going to see if we can order it tomorrow, then the second wait begins.

The real question is what color does your wife want? I have a VR and for a second Camaro (should I be so lucky) I would go with either silver or ABM. Or, you could just combine the two and get both--one body color and one stripe color.
