This car makes me feel like a celebrity

Yesterday was just one of those days man.

I go to the car wash and got it detailed buffed n shined. And as I am about to get in my car and leave and thank everyone they say 'WAIT'. As I look back they all tell me not to leave yet because they want to stare at the car for another minute lol. One guy said 'i just want to admire my work, whoooo thats a nice car'. Then on the ride home everyone I pass turns their head, I pull up into the gas station and 2 people come up to me and talk to me about the car. THEN, as I pull out I hit a stoplight and hand a homeless guy some money and he goes 'screw the money, how about you let me test drive your car, ill bring it right back '. Haha, yesterday was a great day for cruising.

What other car for under 30k can attract this much attention? I love my camaro. BTW its complete stock, imagine if I modded it?

yeah, there was a guy on the side of the street jumping and doing jumping jacks to get my attention, just to give me a thumbs up for my car.

+1, and IMO out of all the colors, nothing looks better than a perfectly clean black camaro...only problem is that its so hard to keep clean! which is why i got red instead

tw3ss I love your car.

The new Camaro makes me laugh how SO MANY people turn around as I

drive by. Its not an expensive car. About 1/2 the cars around me cost more?

Get used to it. It still happens to me every time I go to town in ours, and I've had this car for over a year now.

Once I was walking toward the exit of the gas station, and a fellow walking toward the same door from the outside held it open for me and waited until I exited just so he could ask me about the car. !!!

I was leaving the gym the other day and two older gentlemen were behind me. They spotted my car, and started a conversation about it..as I walked towards it one said "No, no..tell me you are not walking towards that Camaro!" I laughed and hit the remote start..they both were like.."No Way!" They asked how I liked driving the car..I replied with a smile.."I like it a whole bunch!"

I live in hawaii, and on the way home from work I always take this route right off the beach in Haleiwa. I guess there was some kind of field trip there, becuase there was maybe two bus loads of kids all lined up alongside the road. As I drove by they all yelled at me and gave me the shocka! So I threw one back at them lol. Yeah they're only kids, but still I thought it was pretty cool lol

I get a kick out of the little kids who stop and point with their parents in tow... they associate the camaro with transformers, and that's cool.... we are creating the next generation of camaro lovers....
