Thumbs down Anyone care to set the record straight with this guy?

OK, so, I got this uncalled for, nasty, jealous email from a Dave Oz. I'll see if I can find a pic of him somewhere & attach it. Part of his incompetent email to me went something like this:

".........And it's too bad you bought a 2011 Camaro, with a V6??!! That car's a total insult to anyone like me, who owns a 1968 Camaro SS 454 in restoration. You could've bought an original for the same price, but now you're stuck with an inferior, plastic-infested, poor quality-GM product with unreliable Chinese-built electronics. At least I can say my SS is the real deal."

Yeah, yeah, blaw, blaw, cry, cry, whatever! Just trailer your rustoration piece of crap back home! Why would I want an old obsolete car for the same price as brand new one with all new features, 29MPG & a warranty?? That makes no financial sence at all!! How dumb!! He must not have thought much about the fact, (in his anger with me), the reason his car is still in restoration after many years and tons of money, is the scarceness & rarity of new parts. You might have a few remanufactured parts left, then there's the junkyard, not much better there. Sure, you have aftermarket which doesn't count as being original or correct. Then he somehow figures that he has the "real deal SS" I would guess being made in America. WRONG! His obsolete ride was made in Canada like all the rest, even 1970's-'80's Pontiac's were made in Canada. He also didnt figure that in the next 20-30 years our beautiful Camaro's will still be like new and continue to run strong. His '68 will just sit in the garage to collect old lawn furniture & boxes due to being too outdated to run with no parts or fluids available. If you see this guy in NM. or on Book With A Face, maybe he can be reminded that it's not the size of the engine, it's the horsepower. Our 5th Gens can run circles around his old rustoration car all day long with a V-6, and more circles with a V-8! Not to mention we have a very good 3 point warranty with GM for our Camaro's with the ability for extended warranty's after. Where is the warranty for this guy's car? Anyone care to back me up with this and toss this guy off his NM. high horse? I wasn't going to post this, but this part of his email to me had nothing to do about anything & it wasn't nessesary at all. So I hope you will always continue to insult this person with your better than his 5th Gen Camaro. That would be a pretty cool piece of revenge! By the way Dave, where's the pics of this '68 on your Book With A Face page? If he likes taking pics so much, wheres the pics for this rustoration car? Maybe he's hiding under his desk and won't answer. That's typical. At least I have pics on Book With A Face of my car. Anyway, I feel better now that I vented all that out. I wanted to report him for abuse, but wasn't able to. What do you think? Am I off base here? Or does this guy just not know what in the %^&* he's talking about? On the other hand, maybe I shouldn't worry about it too much, mine is brand new, no miles, new features, warranty, his isn't. Here is a pic of Dave Oz on Book With A Face. He is riding little bicycles since his only transportation is an old '68 Camaro that's not running it seems. Go figure?

A 1968 Camaro NEVER came with a 454 from the factory. Therefore, not the real deal SS.

Why all the black-on-black crime brothaz???

Seriously, what's with V8 owners coming down on V6 drivers? Oughtta have comeradery, not guile. Uncalled for, and kinda pathetic on his part. Maybe he feels like gen 5 is stealing his thunder... Insecure much?

I didn't even read the OP's response, it looks long-winded and probably full of jaded insults and negativity for 1st gens and their drivers. A Camaro is a Camaro, guys*. Just wave back when I pass you.

*Except for gen 4, those make me

Chris, everyone has their own opinions on what is better, an old or a new car. I own old and new, they are each great in their own ways. In my opinion, which may not matter, a new SS is every bit the bad a** car a 1968 SS is. He is being nasty and hostile, probably better to just ignore him. Oh, and by the way, the first gen. and most if not all the second gen. Camaros were built in America. 2 plants, one in Norwood, Ohio and another in California I think. They closed the Norwood plant in the eighties.
