Do you think that those of us that are adverse to "Pleather" should not be offered an SS? Why do you care what I bought? I don't care if you got the one with the Vinoleum seats and the Bluetooth. Does the bluetooth make yours go faster or handle better than my 1SS? If I add the garage door opener will I turn a quicker quarter mile at New England Dragway? I have just what I need, no more or no less. I have the polished wheels, the Boston Accoustics and the only thing that I thought that the car should have had from the factory, the gauge pack is on order and paid for and will be installed by the end of the week.
Good grief!

FWIW, I'm betting very few Camaros, v6 or v8, ever line up at the tree.

Same here. Seems I have the "lowest" in each of the pie charts except for the model. I'd like only one thing that I don't have, and that's leather. The cloth is fine for me, but for my German Shepherd, the leather would be much better.

And, yes, he really does travel with me.

Last weekend...

I'm not putting down the V6 by the way, I own two cars with V6 and they are appropriate for those two cars, but on the Camaro? I wouldn't buy a Challenger with a V6 either. My opinion, but evidently also the opinion of 58% of Camaro buyers.
Did you drive the v6? Just curious.

I own two cars with v8s, didn't have to have another.

Is leather or cloth better for a large dog? I haven't ventured to allow any of our large dogs in my car, but would love to have that co-pilot...

I am shocked the Imperial Blue is so low....love the color to death

He's my traveling buddy for sure. In all the other rides, though, he is backseat driver.

IMO, leather. At least for my German Shepherd, as he has so much hair. It just wipes off the leather so easily. I couldn't find all the options I wanted AND the leather on the Camaro, though.

Here are a few pix from today, riding home from Dallas in the Camaro.

It's nice to know that my ABM LS 6sp manual is 1 of 63. If you add in the white stripes it's 1 of 10.

Hope they don't bring back ABM!

My first choice was ABM with white stripes but I waited too long. IBM instead.

I think a big part of the 2ss vs 1ss sales is dealership configuration. When I was shopping it seemed like the dealers were ordering fully loaded models,everytime I asked a dealer about incoming models they would always rattle off these fully option cars. I had to go 450 miles to find a 1SS/RS in black. If I wanted a 2SS in black there were about a dozen local to chose from. I don't think most buyers would go the route I did and would just go ahead and plunk down the extra $3k for the 2SS.

Like stated above, I don't like leather in my "fun" car, the gage cluster is lame and takes away a great storage area (phone/wallet) and I basically wanted the engine/tranny/halos...the rest if wasted fluff to me.

I find it funny, that I saw more Camaros in Georgia then Florida. Yet, there are more registered Camaros in Florida then in Georgia. Also, I see more in Illinois then I saw in Florida. I guess none of them are in Orlando, lol.

Maybe Chevy should oferf the 2SS with a cloth delete option w/ a $500-750 or so credit? That would probably mean there would be even more 2SSs sold.

I am surprised to see so little 1ss count considering the 3,000 dollar difference.
I am one of the minority that had to go for the 1ss. It was a hard decision but financially I couldnt go for the other 3000. I also have the Imperial blue which looks to be the rarest color other than the discontinued aqua.
I think gm really dropped the ball with the options on these cars. I dont understand why you cant get blue tooth just because you got cloth seats, to me blue tooth is a safety feature. why is it tire pressure monitors are mandatory on all cars now but blue tooth isnt?? which is more likely to prevent more accidents??
I bought a 2009 cobalt ss for 20k and it came with blue tooth, my 1ss was 33k and doesnt have it. I could live without leather and the better speakers, I of course had the floor gauges dealer installed because to me they are a must have in these cars. I just dont understand how blue tooth is not even offered as an accessory add on, it cant be too hard to do since I already installed an aftermarket one and it works the exact same way. I think gm should give more consideration to the people who cant afford to buy a camaro that starts at 36k and revamp their option availability.

excellent idea how about 2SSL and 2SSC so you dont have to forfeit other important features to get what you want and be able to afford it.

My choice of cloth over leather had nothing to do with affordability. I preferred cloth. I would have welcomed a leather delete 2SS.

I also prefer cloth, expecially on hot days like today. I would have taken the leather just to get the other 2ss options if it was more affordable or they were offered differently. The worst part is after I paid the dealer 500 to install floor gauges and 400 for blue tooth it was really only a difference of 2100 bucks. spread out over the payments it wouldnt have been a terrible difference but when you got kids in college you cant think about only you.
