If you have the factory yellow transformer package you can not get rid of it. The car adopted you.

I ordered my car on May 11th 2010 at 5:21pm. I will pass the car down to my son. The car and my son were born exactly 3 weeks apart. Camaro 6-4-2010 , Easton 6-25-2010. Now my son was born 10 weeks premature and and a pretty tough go of things while he was in the N.I.C.U. However , he pulled through and was able to come home after spending 6 weeks in the hospital. I made damn sure he rode home from the hospital in "His" Camaro....... So on August 5th , 2010 he was cleared for takeoff and I pulled " Deuce" up to the entrance to the hospital and away we went. If this car ever leaves my possession , it will be by someone prying the keys from my cold dead hands , or I give it to "E" when he gets a little older............................................. .It's not just a car

well this is my first camaro and first car that i actually really like. my mom told me never to sell it. she said every one whos sells a car like this always wishes they had it in the end. my grandfather sold his grand national 8 years ago, and also regrets that. it would have been mine.

Some of you are now trading or selling your 5th. Let me ask you guys the same question those who still have there's will you ever let it go for any reason?And for those who had.... a "camaro" Do you Regret the fact that you have let any Gen of yours go?

My answer.... I will never let mine go, it will have to be taken by force lol

BTW...I had a 98' that I sold....regret that to this day
I plan on keeping mine until the 6th gen comes out then ile trade it in.

I know its off topic but were did you get the small electric toy camaro at?Ive been trying to buy one for my son but every were i look they only have yellow or pink!

I plan on keeping this for a ong time and passing down to children. I'm emotionally invested in it because of my love of 1st gen Camaros and love at first sight when introduced as a concept. I'm also adding a ton of fun memories with my family in it.

That said, things change and I quit trying to predict the future a long time ago. But lovin' it now for sure!

It's A keeper!

I held on to my '88 Camaro for 22 years. My C2 Vette and my C5 Camaro will look great with a 2012 Vette stuck in between. I just need a bigger garage. My wife's '79 bug is already in the driveway.

Short of that, I will never sell this car. I will be driving it when I'm way too old to be driving.

I plan on keeping mine for a while as my daily driver. I have never owned a car that I had less than 130k miles before getting rid of it. My last had almost 160k. The Dodge I owned befor that had almost 180k.

I always thought I was gonna keep it, and that time would tell. I guess I was wrong. I sold it about 8 months ago.

I've always wanted a Camaro and this was my first brand new car i ever bought, so i plan on keeping it. My little nephew who is 7 loves it and i told him that if he helps me take care of it and works on it with me im going to give it to him when he's 18. he's already going around telling his friends thats he's going to own it when he's older.
