Hello everybody! I want to start by saying that I am extremely thankful for my amazing family, and I do realize that I am extremely blessed!

So my story... I am 16 years old and I fell in love with the fifth gen Camaro about a year ago. I'm pretty sure my parents got really annoyed because whenever we would pass a Camaro, I would point and yell, "CAMARO!" Anyway, I turned 16 back in March, and I drove my sister's old Mitsubishi for about five months. As much as I loved the new Camaro's, I never once believed that I would get one. Well, this past Friday I had just gotten back from a trip in South America with my church, and my parents picked me up from the airport. So, on the way home, my dad was telling me that he had taken my car somewhere where they did some work on it and did things to "spice it up." I was just wondering what he could of possibly done to a 4 cylinder Mitsubishi Outlander to "spice it up"? So he opened the garage, and there it was, in all of its beauty, a summit white 2011 Camaro 2LT/RS with orange stripes :happyanim: I freaked out. They even took a video of my reaction, and it's pretty funny. Anyway, i absolutely LOVE this car! It is amazing!!! I've looked at these forums some over the past couple of months, and I figured I had to become a member now. :chevy: :thumbup: (I'm trying to upload pictures, so I hope it works)

Nice, don't be a typical 16 yr old

I'll be honest here... I'm a mother of four almost grown kids (29, 26, 21, 18) - and I cringe when I read of yet another 16 y/o getting a Camaro.

Why?? Pure driving experience - you have none. You give a child a high performance car and the results 90% of the time aren't good. My then 16 y/o daughter wanted a Camaro too, hell no. Told her to get 3 yrs experience under her belt and we'd talk about it.

Everyone has various degrees of being responsible - but I'm sure you've heard this all before.

Please respect this car, it is a beast of a machine - but it won't make you invincible.

I understand what kind of car it is, and I promise you, I respect the power of this car. I love driving the Camaro, but I'm not gonna be stupid. So many people assume that all 16 year olds are just a bunch of punks that make dumb decisions and just want to show off to their friends. And I know this is said a lot, but I am a responsible driver. I don't speed, I have no tickets, and no wrecks (I realize 5 months isn't that much driving experience). And honestly, it's basically my dads car. He drives it just as much as I do. My parents would not have gotten this car if they didn't think I could handle it. Trust me, I will be EXTREMELY careful.
