A Mustang owner came up to me yesterday was asking me about it at the gas station (loved it). Glad he kept his distance though, idiot was smoking a cigarette AT THE GAS STATION.

BUT, my fave comment of all time: The day I picked the car up I took my "friend" to a carnival and they had a Silver SS on display. While we were in line to get on a ride some guy in front of me asked if I saw that new Camaro. I replied: "Oh, I have one" PRICELESS!!!!!

I don't have mine yet but was fortunate enough to have negotiated a killer deal w/Avis in Las Vegas. Had a Rally Yellow 2SS for 6 glorious days which included a long drive out to the Grand Canyon. Bonus point for posted speed limit of 75 mph! I even managed to run into another fellow Camaro5 member outside a Starbucks on the way out to GC.

No matter how remote the location I thought I was in, someone would come up and start looking the car over. Driving across the Hoover Dam heard multiple kids yelling to their parents, "there's Bumblebee!" and multiple others grabbing for their cameras/phone. And probably the most used word I've heard about this vehicle is "sexy" and I would whole-heartedly agree. I never thought I would just sit and stare and then go "damn that car is sexy".

It is making the wait for the vert so incredibly difficult . . .

The Camaro definitely earned the popular mechanics award, every time I see one it turns my head! I live on a college campus and I've seen two of them parked on one of the streets, and took pictures of them every time! I have to say, I'm jealous of anyone that owns one!

speaking of the two Camaros on campus, does any member on Camaro5 have a black on black, or IOM Camaro that comes to Drury University? :-P

It's amazing that my 2010 still turns heads and I drive it all the time. The only other one that equals it is my 69 convertible. I have never seen so much attention paid to a new car. The stang rarely turnd heads, the challanger does sometimes, but my Camaro always does. Most magazines say the same thing. The ones that don't arn't worth reading anyway.

No kidding! A buddy of mine rented one for a couple of days to check it out. Of course with mine on order, we carpooled to work!

Funny and unexpected thing for me was as we were getting on the 2 lane on ramp to the freeway with a stop light I look across my buddy driving and said look to your left ... the passenger window opened and hand comes out with a Blackberry phone and the guy is franticly taking pictures. At the light he sticks his head out, gives us a thumbs up and drives off.

What bummed me out is it wasn’t until the split second went buy that i thought what a cool pic it would have been if I whipped out my Blackberry from inside the Camaro and took a picture of the guy taking a picture of us!!

Well, I am sure I will have more opportunities when mine comes in in a few weeks or so.

Popular Mechanics Best Vehicle Design

The 2010 Camaro was given the title Best Vehicle Design by Popular Mechanics.


After a painfully long eight-year hiatus, the Chevy Camaro returns packing V8 power and V6 efficiency wrapped around classic sheet metal pulled forward into the 21st century. The design certainly pays homage to the past, but the muscular lines of this Camaro are modern and fresh.

The success of a new car design, especially a sporty one, depends on its ability not just to turn heads, but to inspire an almost primal lust in everyone from a college kid to his grandfather— hitting all the age groups in between. The new Camaro does just that—and it’s become one of the few cars outside the supercar ranks that will almost always elicit a conversation at the gas pumps.

BEST VEHICLE DESIGN
Chevrolet Camaro
Base Price: $22,245Under the watch of GM design boss Ed Welburn, Chevy imagined the new Camaro as a thoroughly modern take on the 1967 original. And it looks amazingly close to the 2006 concept car. GM engineers somehow avoided the compromises that tend to dilute a designer’s original vision as it makes its way into production. The inset front grille and the outboard round headlights offer a real link to that first Camaro, yet the big wheels and taut proportions perfectly convey 21st-century muscle.

Good design extends to the interior too: The view through the windshield is 1960s cool, yet it’s the subtleties that make this car feel so right. Of course, a Camaro wouldn’t feel right at all if there wasn’t some serious firepower under the hood. The top-dog SS models have a big 422-hp 6.2-liter V8, and even the base cars receive a potent V6 that returns 30 mpg highway.

The real triumph is that all the Camaro’s performance and intelligent design can be had for just a tick over $20,000. That’s a bargain.
