I plan on keeping mine forever. It will be my daily driver for the next few years until I can afford a used Silverado. Then the Camaro will be a "fun" car and I'll have the truck for daily driving.

Unless something more awsome than my 2SS/RS comes along I will keep her.
I regret getting rid of several of my cars like the '69 Chevelle SS, '69 Nova SS, 96 Impala SS. All were fast/fun cars but my Camaro is definatly the MOST Fun and the fastest of all.....................................yep.....sh e's a keeper!!

Probably keep it for a while. Paying it off, 60 months. We'll see if I want to change by then.

I plan on keeping this Camaro until I die, or it dies, whichever comes first!!!...

My husband and I sold my Firebird after only 8 years, and 108,000 miles when we started a family and I never, ever got over it, until this Camaro....

I will not be getting rid of this Camaro....I will not make the same mistake twice...

I wanna be that guy that still has his Camaro he bought new 30-40 years ago. My buddy Jim bought a Daytona Yellow 69 Z/28 brand new and still has it today. I think that is just the coolest thing.

I want to, but I donít think I will. Donít get me wrong, I love everything about this car. Even the parts that people pick to death. Yes, that includes the dash, passenger seat, sun visors, etc. To me itís the sum and not the individual parts. I think we all have to agree that GM was spot on with this car! Anyway, Iím thinking about selling it before I leave for Iraq this fall and ordering a new Z-28 when I get back.

I plan on keeping this one as long as it will get me from point A to point B without me having to cross my fingers.

The only other daily driver car I ever owned was my 98 Camaro that I traded in to get this one. The only reason I traded it in was because it wouldn't pass the Illinois emissions test that it was scheduled for. It wasn't economically smart to pay to fix it up, since it was turning into a money pit, so instead I bought a new one. I also really wanted the Transformer version, and I knew time was running out, since only 3 were left on the market within a 400 mile radius of my house.

However, I do miss the T-tops, now that it is nice outside. At least I have a sunroof so I don't feel like I'm in a cage. I also miss feeling so low to the ground. The new one feels a little higher.

However, it is awesome to be driving around in Bumblebee as a high school teacher. My students are in awe. They say they like it even more then the 70 Challenger that I drive to school in every once in awhile. (obviously not the daily driver)

I know you guys just got the 6.5% so you might still hate paying it. State government has got to run somehow.
Not to fuel a political debate but with all due respect, your mindset is part of the problem. "State government has got to run somehow". Yes they do and they need to learn how to do it with less. Instead it is we citizens who have to figure out how to make do with less and less and less and continue our acquiescence to their lack of respect for our wallets? Our tax rates continue to rise and so does inflation. You do the math. If we all had to sit down and write a check out at the end of the year for all the taxes we pay, we all would be electing different people into office.

I'll step off of my soapbox now....

Onto the subject at hand. Owning a 2LT RS, I can't say I'd never sell it because I know down the road it's not going to be as special as a V8. I'll keep it for as long as I can, mod it as much as I can get away with modding it and when it's worn out, I'll go from there I guess.

I may pull the trigger on a 'vert down the road. Not sure if I'll do the V8 though. I'll give it another year to see what kind of boost options are available for the V6.

I will say that I absolutely love my Camaro (and the subsequent culture that goes with it.) This from a staunch import owner of many years.

No!!!

I do not plan to sell, trade my Camaro. Why I say that, My Camaro was born on my late Grandfathers birthday. I have gave up other GEN's for my new Camaro. It is admazing car. I do plan on showing it at what ever show there is, GM National's, Camaro 5 Fest. So on. My Camaro happened for a reason. My late GrandFather July 3rd, 1918, My Camaro July 3rd, 2009.
Has anyone had that happen to them? When your Camaro was built on a families birthday?

My Camaro was built on 5/1/09, which is my son's birthday and also the day my Dad retired...

The CO was dated 5/6/09, which is my wedding anniversary and my husband and I bought the Camaro for our anniversary!!!...

It was delivered to the dealer on 5/18/09, which was my sister's 18th wedding anniversary, and 8 months since my Dad died...

We picked it up on 5/19/09, which was my parent's wedding anniversary, and the 1st one they would be spending together in heaven since my Mom died in 1994...

BTW, I ordered my Camaro on 1/2/09, so I had NO IDEA when my car would be built or delivered...

I wouldn't trade my Camaro for all the money in the world...

It means the world to me, especially with all the magical dates attached to it...

And, I was also blessed enough to receive a signed litho from Mike Judge, and I have the shock tower signed by the Fbodfather , John Fitzpatrick, Al Oppenheiser, Cheryl Pilcher, and John Cox - all from GM...

I plan to keep this Camaro forever..First I love this car and second..hubby will only buy if he can pay for it, no loans. So I traded my 2004 SSR for this Camaro and when it is old with a ton of miles on it, I sure won't be able to trade for a new anything and be able to pay the difference. So am glad I like this car so much.
