I think it might be because the Corvette appears a little dated in its mid life...I would agree that the Camaro seems to be getting more attention on the street compared to new corvettes!

That ZR1 looked hot when I saw it the other day, 474Chevelle...hehe, but I like the way the Camaro looks better!!!

Was that Camaro in there when I stopped by? I don't remember it in the showroom like that.

haha Both cars are great value for the things they do.

The ZR1 is expensive, but not near as expensive as some of the cars in its performance class

It's because the Camaro is new and many people haven't seen it yet. A few years back people would have walked past a Viper to look at a PT Cruiser (providing of course it was a combined Dodge/Chrysler dealership).
