NY is almost 9% --- I bought my car in Virginia, and their sales tax is only 3%

I had to pay the sales tax in the state I registered the car, which is NY, where I live and drive....:(

3 times as much!!!...

Fortunately, we were all able to deduct the sales tax for any new car purchased in 2009, so that helped 'ease the pain' a bit....

Mines a keeper. I plan to give it to my grandson who just turned one on May 28th.

I kept my "66 Chevelle from 1971 to 2007...then ordered my Camaro on Oct. 13th 2008. Oh, and I had a 1970 Chevelle from 1974 to 1997.

Keeping mine unless the next generation V8 is as cool as this one. In which case, I'll be a 6th generation SS owner.

I'm 18, so this is the first car that I've actually bought - as opposed to using my parents cars, so I plan on keeping my girl till she sputters out and dies, even then she'll probably be in the garage just for looks

I had a 68 ss/rs but the "69" is by far my favorite camaro, until now!. I bought the fade to black gills for my 2SS. I know that there not the chrome accents from 69. But I really think these accent the gills nicely... IMO



I also removed the chrome bezels around the tail lights...



This damn car is really quick...

Get rid of it? No way, we are planning on buying a conv as soon as they come out next spring. My dealer has told me that they will be the Z28. Haven't really heard that for sure yet though....

First Camaro 1994 Z28 Color: Red Owned from 2000-2002 bought with 24,000 miles sold with 29,000. I cried when she rolled out of my driveway the last time.
Second Camaro 2001 Z28 Color: Black Owned from 2002-2010 bought with 8000 miles sold with 34,955. I handed Karl Chevrolet the keys and have not regretted it. She is still on the lot for sale at Karl, I stop by to say hi once a week just for old time sake but I never liked the color from the first time I washed her.
Third Camaro 2010 2SS Color IOM with White Rally Stripes took delivery 04/21/2010 with 34 miles. I don't see myself owning another sports car other than her. She is the car of I have been dreaming about since the Camaro went out of production in 2002 and she is my dream come true!!

Dad had a 1971 Z/28.
He sold it back in 1994.
I've been kicking his ass about it ever since.

This one will be with me til they bury me in it.

I have my original 1970 1/2 Z28/RS (original owner) and will keep it. I also still have my 1999 SS (but it's for sale).

I sold my other 1970 1/2 Z28, my '79 Z28, my '81 Z28, and my '82 Z28.

I plan on keeping my 2010 2SS/RS. It's the same red/black stripes as my '70 1/2.

A keeper

I had a 1975 Type LT handed down to me by my grandmother when I was in high school, I had to replace almost all the sheet metal, doors, quarters, floors, but I loved that car and selling it when I went to college was one of the worst experiences of my life. It wasn't fast, it wasn't all that pretty, but it was mine and I have judged every car I've owned against the fun I had with that one. I'll be keeping my 2010! No way I'm getting rid of it.

Bone, you have one of the best colors and void of chrome makes it look even sportier... Hope to see you at some car shows...

Talking Shoulda Kept It

Yeah, I had a '69 Convertible SS - Burgundy with Parchment. Should have kept it. I now have a 2010 RS/SS and it's a keeper, UNLESS I one day go with a convertible!
