What kind of down payment....

..does everyone here plan on putting down for the Camaro and which model do you plan on buying? What do you suspect your monthly average payments to be?

I may lease it for the first 3 years and buy it instead of turning it in at the end. That way I don't have to put much down and can write of the lease payments plus i can keep my current car as an extra. Otherwise I'm planning to put around 8k down. Either way my payments should hover around $450 if i get the base V8, closer to $600 - $650 if I get the HiPo.

I'd like to put about 30-50% down on it - in about 3 years. I plan on getting the entry V8. Not sure what my payments will be though

I pledged to hold off until I can put 50% down, which I should be able to do by 2012. However, I will be able to afford it before that point, and it will be tempting to get it earlier. I just want to limit my debt and never be upside down on the car.

I plan to trade in my Mazda and put down enough cash to total $10k. Hopefully that will make the base V8 do-able for me. If not, I'll have to settle for the V6.

I'm hoping to be able to collect at least enough for a HiPo-version in the order of about 10-25%. If I can keep my payments somewhere in the neighborhood of $500-600, I think I can do it. I'll probably be looking at a purchase around 2011 or so.

I'm gonna be just about debt free, except for a house payment by the end of this year. Depending on what daycare will cost, and how much I've saved by early 2010, I'm hoping to have a $300 payment with about 15K down. I'm planning on getting the HiPo model. Hopefully a 550HP LSA under the hood.

by the time I can I'll have 20K at least put back maybe about 24k. just depends on what random bills come up after my deployment. so the oh shit face version I will probably end up financing about half.

Planning to get the entry level V8. I'm expecting to have about $14,000 to put down, possibly a little more. And I'm guessing I'll have payments in the $500 range.

I plan to put $16k down, hoping to have my payments aroun $400 - plan to get the V8 Coupe fully loaded, but not the HiPo one with the supercharger.

Man, you guys are putting a lot down and still will have large payments! I'm not going to have anything to put down as I will be paying on my credit cards for the next few years that I built up going to school the past 3 years. I was hoping to get a couple grand out of my nissan on trade-in and would like the payments to be no more than 400/month for the base V8 with very few options if any. I may have to do an 84 month loan or something. If not I may have to wait 2 years until my car is paid off...

Welllll, depending on what the price ranges are going to be, I'll go for the entry level v-8 and put 20k +/- and go for a three year loan.

I plan on getting a base v8 (god I hope its an LS3...)
I'm looking at trading in my stang, and putting down 3-3.5k cash, so thats around 17k, maybe a little more depending on what they give me for the mustang.

I don't know what ya'll are doing (in life) to be able to put down those figures,...

My goal is $2-3k, perhaps even $5k. I'm a father of three kids and an E5 in the Navy. I already have a $1k CD growing (compound interest), and will purchase another CD during my next deployment. I also bought a $1k savings bond, ($500 actual paid) but it won't mature fully until 2013. I can cash it in early, which I'll most likely do, so I'm hoping to get at least $800 out of it come 2010 (or 2011). Figure I can save up a few bucks here and there, I just might have $3k to put down.

So what does everyone think the HiPo version will run? LSA/or supercharged LS3, fully loaded, pretty well every option except under-coating?

Well, my estimate is assuming an approximate price of $35,000 for a loaded base V8 (it's about where the Mustang is when loaded up).

So even if I put $15,000 down that's still $20,000+taxes. Which would be a payment of over $400 per month for 5 years.

If the Camaro comes in cheaper, great. But I'm not getting my hopes up for something I doubt will happen.

Saving $1000 from my tax return each year since Jan '06, putting away bits of money here and there, $1000 from my mother for getting rid of an old Z34 I have kept at her place, $5000 from my dad if I can net $5000 in overtime at work by next March...

Working for the New Jersey Department of Corrections has it's perks. LOL

Any chance of an SRB? esp. if you re-up somwhere like Bahrain (taxfree)
-my nephew just signed up to get 75k (6 more years) now if I can talk him into buying a new Z/28 and 'storing' it at my house while he is on the ship.......
