Nice Silverado, I really like the new ones. Sorry you had to give up the Camaro to get one. I would have to give up the Camaro also to get a Silverado.

I'm sorry to hear you had to cancel your order, but you made a smart decision, 2 in fact!

1. You still bought a GM vehicle.
2. You bought the vehicle you need at the moment.

Hopefully GM will get back on track, and when it does, I'm sure you'll still be able to go back and place an order for your Camaro when the timing is right.

Congrats on the Silverado.

Nice truck. I love the interior of the new ones. My 04 GMC is fortunately low milage, has quadrasteer, and is paid for. So I can go for the Camaro without having to give up the truck for the winter use and for towing/hauling.

It makes me wonder why I'm not going with a vette...except that I think the Camaro will be easier to climb in and out of being that I'm mid 50's with knee surguries and back damages. I love my CTS in that respect and hope the Camaro will be close to it for what I need.

Thats why the CTS-V is so tempting. But the $$$$$ whoa! Its still on the table, but not much chance of pulling it off financially. If the Camaro does'nt happen and the Vette prices spike I would be forced to go that way I guess. Lets hope we will get the Camaros we want.

That's the spirit!

Hopefully it'll be a 5th Gen., but even if it isn't, when the time is right, GET YOURSELF A CAMARO, no matter what gen. it is. You won't regret it.

Also, if you want to share your reasoning, fine, but don't feel obligated. We've all been in tough situations on occassion.

Please stick around too. Owning a Camaro isn't a requirement to be a Camaro enthusiast.

Ugh! Don't remind me. Last time I did the 'practical' thing I ended up in my current Aveo... At least it's still a Chevy.

LOL Screw practicality, I'm never doing it again.

I hear ya on the upside down loans. Pawning off my 07 mustang GT soon. Just went and got the order sheet today with my dealer. Inferno Orange metallic 1SS with black stripes,20" polished wheels Hurst 6 spd manual & Sun Roof. $38,995 canadian. I guess tack on 8 grand negative equity to that being upside down from the stang. Will be worth it though.

ok for those of you that want to know the story....

...About a week and a half ago I went to order a car cover for my camaro...and the dealership had all of their red tag specials on all the vehicles....so I ran across this truck and really liked it...but I hadn't changed my mind at this point...

....so then a few days later I was told that I would be let go from my job for jan. and feb. of next year....so then I had some decisions to make...I could go with the camaro and have no money...or get the truck and save money on..overall price/gas/insurance/down payment....

....so it was more practical...the more I drive it the more I love it....so I will be satified...

...thanks for all the support...it was hard because I was as excited as all of you who have already ordered...so I will never forget camaro5...thanks again
