What we know for sure is that the Camaro was designed and is being built to compete first and foremost with the Mustang. The folks in the know have made it clear it will be competitively priced that is enough for me to determine the price will be about what a Mustang would cost.
Yes, my educated guess pretty much come from everything I have heard and the prices of the mustangs. I just add 1-2 thousand onto the mustang price and that should be pretty much it.

I did hear something slightly disheartening though. I asked Greg English (one of their internet sales guys) about potential pricing, knowing full well that official numbers are not out. He thinks the car we were looking at (LT2 RS) will run a high 28K to 31K. This threw me off a little, so I asked what he thought the base price of a Camaro would be, and he said "around $26,000." I'm hoping he meant just the LT2 and not the LS. What do you think Justin? I'm assuming that you probably got to talk price a lot more than I did. I don't want to turn this into a pricing thread, I just want to know if you think he's spot on or over shooting. I suppose this would also go to whether or not they will really charge MSRP.


BTW, nice pics. I took some as well, but you got my angles and then some, so I'll avoid cluttering things here. Thanks and congrats!

Keep in mind Mr. English was just guessing like all the other numbers we've heard the last couple years. Let's hope GM gives us some numbers on the October 10th IDL.

I understand that he doesn't know for sure, and I am fully aware that Fbodfather gives excellent information. I guess it just stuck in my mind because it was the only negative experience I had that day I didn't mean to start another pricing discussion.

Justin, did your guy tell you when (roughly) you could expect delivery? I want to go back there when they have a couple more to look at.

As a young kid, how can you afford it all by yourself without the help of your parents? (you look 16 in the picture) I do know that if you are paying for it yourself, you will take care of it a whole lot more. If you are living at home and working full-time without a college degree, I can understand being able to afford it if your parents are paying for everything else like food and continuing education. I'm just curious and you don't have to answer me if you want to keep anything private. Congratulations again on this purchase, you will definitely enjoy it.

Well like I have said...I will be 19 next month. I am going to college full time and have a part-time/full time job(I say that because my work calls it a part-time job but I work a 40 hour week and also get a little overtime at times.) As far as what my parents are paying I am going to keep private, but the car payment will be all mine. I am going to put as much of a down payment on it as I can, that way I can get the monthly payments as low as possible. I was saving to do a lot to my truck, but then I decided to get this car..so I was already being smart and saving money before I knew I was going to get the car. I know its hard to believe and I'm sure there are some of you that don't believe that I'm paying for it, etc. People can't be so stereotypical...some "kids" are very responsible and it is the others kids that bring us down.

More power to ya Justin! I drove a 1994 V-6 when I was 18. It took me damn near 10 years to get a great full time job to be able to afford this car. Of course, I also had to make buying a house my number 1 priority. Enjoy it man!

By the way, what a noble name you have. We Justins shall conquer this world!

Thanks for responding. I never once not believed you. I was just curious since I'm 29 and I've already been thru the stage in life you're in. You've told all of us that you're 19, out of High School and in College with a 40 hour a week job which I'm guessing pays better than your average non-diploma job a student normally is able to get without a degree. I'm guessing that you had some help getting the job which is a great way to get your foot in the door of something. My dad helped me get a job with the Panama Canal while I was in High School over the summer and that really helped me down the road for learning about responsibility. It sounds like your truck is a nice one if you were going to use any extra money to do a lot of work on it. You sound like an intelligent young adult that knows what he wants and is smart enough not to get into something he can't afford. I know I'm starting to sound like an old fart however my advice to you after reading your posts is somewhere in the mix start a savings account for yourself if you haven't already (again I'm guessing you are going to be spending all or most of the money you make on the Camaro, insurance and gas.) A savings account will help you keep a good cushion in the bank just in case of an emergency. I know that many young people simply spend all they make during the college years on their "toys" which can be cars, electronics, video games, etc. I know because for awhile I did the same thing. The problem is that the moment there is an emergency, you have to pull money out of somewhere and using a credit card is a bad idea in those cases because the next month you are paying interest and the credit card can become overwhelming. You have the help of your parents and family still at your age and until you leave college and perhaps after you get married. Even then, if your parents are good parents they will still help you no matter what but those good habits will help you when you are by yourself regardless. I'm sorry for going on and on, I just wanted to let you know that I care even though I don't know you and if anything sticks from what I've said, then it was worth it. God Bless and enjoy the Camaro. What color and options did you order again? I'm still undecided but I'm leaning towards black, imperial blue or cyber grey with who knows what interior options. Peace.. -Eddie

Man I bet you feel just like I did when I got on the list for my first Sky. I put my deposit down in May of 2005, I was 3rd on the list at that time. The Official order went in on October 12th 2005, My car came in March 26, 2006, the 351st built and the first to come in at my dealer. So being on the list first is not the key to getting your car first. It is what color cars will be built first and also which options you choose... Good luck...

I went with a Victory Red SS, with (hopefully) black stripes, I got manual with black leather, bosten accoustics stereo, bluetooth, no sunroof...for now we have written down SS2...but this might change once prices do come out.

Nice, you are very lucky. That must be a pretigous chevrolet dealer. I bought a brand new gt500 about 4 months ago. I like it. We will see when the camaro comes out for the performance on the camaro ss. I am a little worried about america's economy at the moment. My local chevy dealer said they may stop production on the camaros because of the current economy situation. if this is true they will be put back even further which i dont want. =(


Btw i paid 38500 for my gt500 w/ a nav and hids. -14,000 for my trade so 24,500 wasnt too bad to finance.

Lucky you...

Did you at least get to start it up?

Still hoping for an early release.

Good stuff man. Congratulations on your order. My

Good choice on the red and stick shift. That's the way to go. The color list is what's giving me the most trouble. So many good ones.


I'm with you on being a young kid affording a nice car. I'm 22 but I still get the same questions. And being young and buying it yourself is truly the more rewarding experience and you will take care of it better for sure. Don't let anyone drag you down. It's unfortunate that some people aren't lucky enough to have decent paying jobs at your age but it doesn't mean you should feel bad for it or have to explain yourself.

And right on on buying the car instead of suping up your truck.

And I hate to be a negative nancy, but a couple of things in this thread have stood out to me.

1: What color did they say that interior will be considered? Grey or black? Because I have all black interior in my GTO and it's considered one of the best interiors in GMs lineup. I like it a lot.

2: the plastics on the interior seem to look like they'd be a little rough to the touch.

3: pricing is all guesses but 33k sounds reasonable. Just being realistic. I assume the car will be worth every penny. Let's just hope it's no higher than that.

On the subject of test drives...

I think think depending on how big the Camaro feels (perhaps the OP could tell us more about that) I can say that if it doesn't feel huge from inside, it'll be a great car to drive. Just my opinion from experience with a car with a similar powertrain. Granted the build quality may differ, but if the GTO is any indication, I believe I'll love the Camaro. The austrailian made GTO had excellent build quality as far as interior goes. And the interior appearance was really high. In comparison to say a 4th gen (no offense guys).

So, expect good things.

oh boy....


a word from the wise.

while you may be the cool guy with a nice ride when you get the car... less you parents are pitching in half of the overall price to keep your monthly payment below 300 a month, some things you might want to consider:

-30k over 4 years @ 7.5% is a $725 a month finance payment.
-insurance on a clear licensed 19 year old driving a 425hp v8 will be at least $200 a month
-depending on driving distance, your gas cost per month at 3.50/gallon will be $120 a month.

now, that alone is $1045 per month for you to have an ss.

that's not even that bad. you can push and pull those numbers with different things (parents help/large downpayment, better insurance, better prime rate, longer finanace terms) but one way or another, you need to be making 2000 a month to live normally outside of the money that goes into your car.

so unless your making 18/hour doing something; just a cautionary heads up. you may want to go down a little bit of a humbler path then a 30k car at the age of 19; not because i dont want to see another 2010 v8 out there somewhere, but because working a 40 hour week (regardless of pay) + school + a social life = alot of pain.


like i said, a word from the wise. buy a top line ss when you can afford to spare the money (like i can via having worked my ass off by the age of 23, so that next feb... an ss isn't gonna hurt my pockets).

your young, dont tie yourself into working like a horse when you should be off drinking with girls and having the time of your life.


----


in any case, best of luck. i'm throughly jealous of your opprotunity to sit in the car.
