Same here, but only if it is supercharged, I can afford it, and it has to be yellow with black stripes so nobody knows I got another new car !

Plan on keeping mine long term. Park it 6 months of the year during the winter. Mine is a RP6 coded car built in the 1st 5000. Not sure if that makes it more collectable. Modding it now, but nothing I can't put back. Storing absolutley all the stock stuff.

Keeping mine forever. If I end up getting the 6th gen, then I will turn Snake Eyes into a weekend or track car.

I'm planning on keeping it. The fact it's one of the Synergy Green SE models gives me incentive to keep it even further.

Had a 70 that I wish I still had trades for a vette. Had a 67 the ex took. Had a 89 that I traded for a truck. Traded a vette for this one. So I guess I've gone full circle. This one is a keeper.

Mine will be staying with me, I can always add on to it, or add to my garage for that matter.

Ideally... I would love to keep this car. But honestly, once its financially within reach... I can easily see myself trading up for an SS or a Z28. If I could have my way, I'd keep the V6 as a daily driver, and have the Z28 for the garage queen / sunny-day toy. We'll see what the future brings...

Either way..... I'm head-over-heels in love with the 5th gen Camaro, and will always have one in some form or another.

This man is correct. Chance's are we will have a camaro but the one we have now most likely not. Myself if i do get a new one it will be coming from the US. I do know one thing rally yellow for life ;o) GM Canada are greedy for gouging us Canadians as bad as they are.

plan on keeping this one, my husband is waiting for the convertible or the z28. I had an 88 IROC Z28 that I hated to trade but I couldn't afford to have two cars and I just could not let my 16 year old daughter drive the camaro. I wish I could get that one back. I loved that car.

I've had 4 previous Camaros. Letting any of them go is always sad (I hate to lose the "familiar") but I don't regret getting rid of any of them. Each loss has led to a new a Camaro.

Will I keep this one for a long time? I plan to, but we'll see what happens.

I dont need the z28 cause the engine will be so moderate in HP due to warranty issues. The extra money to get a z i put into my ss and GM will never reach 580 HP at the rear wheel. I always loved the look of the SS over the z28. I just wish the SS came with a Big block.

I dont plan on ever getting rid of mine now but you never know what GM might offer down the road. If they offer a LS9 in the camaro then there is a great chance i might upgrade or just buy another.

I plan on keeping it, my uncle had a 70 chevelle ss red with white stripes and sold in in 89 for 4K.... I rather not make that mistake, I grew up in Detroit and I have that passion for muscle cars in me, so I'll keep mine and prob pick up the Z28 for my kids and just garage it.... & GM should make a 2015 Chevelle SS dammmnnn that'd be great

I keep all my vehicles. My first was 1988 305 TBI Camaro I bought for college in 1995. I fell in love with it. Then when the fourth gen Camaro came out, I was in heaven again. I couldn't get one until 2000 and could only afford a V6 model. It was my first brand new Camaro. Then I heard the crushing news that 2002 was the final year. I was happy I got my 2 Camaros. I got a 2005 Silverado Crew Cab and just finished paying it off this year. I really want a 5th gen but in the process of buying or building a house right now. Might be perfect to see what happens for the 2012 model.

I am deffinately keeping mine. I have it well documented, and have everything including pics from the day it rolled in te dealership. I have had it 1 year now and it only has 630 miles on it. (mine was a preorder). I love driving it but want to keep low miles since it is such a big release on a new model car. I also have a 68 big block 4 spd SS, a 75, a 92 25th anniversay, a 95 Z28 leather loaded with only 60k miles. I am planning on buying the new Z when it comes out and driving the he'll out of it. In my opinion all camaros are keepers and great investments.

I purchased mine with the intent on passing it on to my kids. To enjoy the car as much as possible and make the most out of it. Yes I love it, but seeing my kids in the seat laughing makes it priceless. ..... Bring on the miles and the memories.

LOL probably.... however for me, once I've found a car I like I stick with that one, sometimes to a fault... I should have given up my vette a year sooner than I did, however if I had done that, I would not have the Camaro I have now... I seriously think I can get at least 300 miles out of this car... and I am gonna try.....
