$35k...Camaro SS or Volt?

I'm curious how many people here would have a difficult time deciding between dropping $35k on a loaded SS or on a new Volt. Obviously different ends of the spectrum as far as cars go but both are equally important to the future of Chevrolet.

I will get the Camaro SS without hesitation. If I make a lot of money, I'll get a Volt as a daily driver, after which you can expect my Camaro's horsepower numbers to suddenly become ridiculous because it will be a project car.

The Volt is a wonderful machine, but I need something fast.

For people that live in a city and rarely drive more than 30 miles a day, the Volt won't cost them a dime in gas, unlike the Prius. Granted, they are just shifting where their pollution comes from - instead of their tailpipe, it's coming from where ever their electric provider generates power. For some people, spending 10 grand more than a Prius is justified because of the feeling they get from not running a gasoline engine all the time. Not for me, but for some people.

I do have to laugh at the poll results so far...they are exactly what I thought they would be, given the audience. I'm pretty certain they would be exactly the opposite if I posted this on a Volt forum.

Camaro without question. Gas isn't that much of an issue. Plus I am sure the A/C works great for the Global Warming I will be contributing to .

Are you serious? To even ask a question like that on a forum dedicated to the 5thgen camaro. What did you think the answer would be.

They might be shifting where there pollution comes from BUT if it is nuclear power for example then it is a good shift since it creates no GREEN HOUSE GASES see plus there will be much less dependencies on MIDDLE EAST OIL which is a VERY GOOD THING don't you think???

I either work from my home office or travel via airplane so the SS is a no brainer.

I do believe in a green environment but until the ecotech catches up to the fossil fuel tech in power etc. it will be a hard sell for a lot of us...

do you plug it in at work? If you go on an extended trip and need to stay at a motel, do you carry your own extension cord to plug it in over night and do you take watch shifts during the night to make sure no one makes off with your chargeing cable ( Bet that is a pretty penny to replace)?
