Look at these!









:( Dilemma: "Need to save $$$ for new Camaro, but these toys make a nice addition to collection."

Sweet! I don't like how the wheels are so far in the wells, but the cars look nice.

Not a big fan of the "Dubs" look either. That's why I think I'll get the "Showroom" one's only.

This is a little off topic, but the above quoted post made me think of it. Do any of your wives/girlfriends/fiances/significant others think your obsession about a car that doesn't even come out for another 1-2 years is crazy?

My wife catches me on here all of the time browsing the forums and trying to dig up any info I can on the Camaro. Usually her response is something like, "Well, i guess I should just be thankful that you spend all of your time on the internet looking at cars and not 13 year old girls" (That is in light of all the media surrounding a new child pornography bill that was recently passed in Indiana to try and catch internet preditors -- just so you don't think i'm crazy) Eitherway, she just can't understand how or why i am so obsessed with the camaro and cars in general..... I hope i am not the only one.

For a while I thought that my wife was blowing it off as a phase. However, yesterday I got the "Heaven" poster and a LS2 shirt for my birthday. I talked to her about the car again last night and it looks like she may be okay with it. It doesn't hurt that we have time to save some cash too!

I don't have a "significant other", but my family laughs at my obsession.

I've seen the concept twice in person, sat in it, been interviewed for a newspaper,.....maybe my family is right?!

I don't know about you all, but I call it a passion. I have three things in my life that I love...1st. MY FAMILY. 2nd is my work (yeah, I love going to work). and 3rd. The Camaro (in general). I love talking about it, but I've talked my wife's ears off...thus the joining of this site. Is she okay w/ me getting the new Camaro? Well, I was smart and got her the Kia w/ all the bells and whistles (come on..butt warmers in TEXAS???) . When I did that, I told her I would get her what she wanted, but I would get what I wanted as well. If you want to receive, you must give. That was an easy agreement. The only thing holding us back now is the financial aspect. You guys aren't nuts. We just have something that a lot of others don't have. And that's a lot more than most!

I let my wife read this post, and she just rolls her eyes everytime she sees me sitting here at the comp. She does not even have to ask anymore, what I am looking at. We bought some of the Camaro shirts(www.chevymall.com), and have all the posters available so far, she understands my passion for cars in general and is looking forward to the release of the Camaro just as much as I am. Although not quite as passionately,lol. What a great wife I have .

My fiance and I have an understanding. The wedding will be a little less extravagent due to the car coming out afterward, but she gets the 99' so she is ok with it. And to think, she thinks that after her last accident that I will give her my baby. I see trouble brewing!
