I expect to have this car for a very long time
Had my Z28 for 10 years
Expect to have this car in the family for as long as it lasts

I read LS3 SS's comments and I was thinking same - first car I have ever had where it was literally built for me - exactly as I wanted it - so it really is a special vehicle to me

I think with all the emmission laws as they are and gas prices (global issues) this generation Camaro might be one of the last "big engine" cars of its time. Just like the big block faded away in the early 70's (really late 60's) only a hand full held on and they were nothing to wrote home about, (like the last few 6.6 T/A cars). So yes these cars are keepers as to value. Mark my words the new Z28 will be the last bad ass Camaro of its kind. I predict the next car will be direct injection like the current v6 - and perhaps a turbo version. Dare I say it is hard to argue with the current success of the new SHO TT V6 motor from Ford as is the new 5.0 Mustang engine with variable valve timing. My brother just got one and it dyno'd at 391. That means it makes way more than the 412 they are claiming. At a 15% loss it works out to be more like 445hp at crank.

I've owned a 67 RS since 1987.
I had a 68 RS/SS with the 350hp 396, deluxe interior and tic-toc-tach, I purchased in 1986, but had to sell it in 1993.
Owned a 94 and 95, but sold them also. The 94 I owned for exactly 10 years.

The "plan" is to own this one indefinately.

I haven't gotten mine yet but I plan on keeping it for quite a long time when I do. I had a 3rd gen and had to sell it and have regretted it every day since.

You know at least for now I am keeping it. I may trade it in if the Alpha looks to be that much better and if the Z28 comes out. All just depends. To me it already has the look that I think I will love for decades. Heck, my heart still pounds when I see a foxbody Mustang, who was my favorite car until the new Camaro. But there is so much that can be down. I am just a bit upset they will be dumping this model for the Alpha platform. They could do so much more with the current model, even dropping the weight. I wish if they were going with Alpha they did it from the start.

My first Camaro was a Matador Red 68 with black stripes and spoiler. Of course it had the S/S Cragars. Had a second generation and a Vette along the way. I'm crazy about this one and don't have any plans on replacing it. Sorry GM.

I'll let it go if the Z comes out the way I hope it will. The SS is great, but I've always wanted a Z28. The only rumor I'm not sure about is, the only transmission will be a six speed manual. Time will tell.

Personally I do not spend close to $50 grand on a car and not keep it. I have no regrets about getting rid of my old '76 LT back in 1989. I could not keep up the maintenance at the time. This one will be a keeper in my garage!

Like many that have posted already, I had mine built exactly the way I wanted it, so I have no plans in the forseeable future to trade or sell my SS. I am absolutely lovin' this bad boy. It's everything I expected and more....Thanks Oshawa

Keeping it without question....likely to build another house so I can add another one or two as others worthy of enjoying come out. 2010 is truly the first of a new generation....and thus a keeper....

I bought my 5th gen because I really like what Chevy did with the new Camaro mechanically and design.I still have my '67, but I can't do the work to restore her as I had planned because I hurt my back. I'll be cruisin' with my perma-grin in my 2010 RS/SS, 6M. I haven't had this many compliments on a vehicle since I had my '67 and my harley on the road, both of which I built from the ground up, and since I can't do that kind of work anymore, I'll just have to wait until I win the lottery, then I'll have the '67 restored, she's not going anywhere, lol.

He will tell you it's going to be his, but for now it's all mine. That's also why I didn't get the SS. There is no way in hell I would turn him loose with more power then this 6 has for a first car.

Cool

The Only reason I bought it was to enjoy it a bit each year, keep it stored and protected forever. It will be willed to my kids.
