CamaroFest5 was bad about clicks being scattered about. The ones in Bowling Green have been alot better.

This is unavoidable. Some folks are more social extroverts than others. That'll never change.

My biggest disappointment I think both years is how fragmented or segmented the crowd is. I always think it will be a huge party with a lot of folks that have a lot in common but it just has the feel of different groups of friends staying to themselves. Everyone is very friendly if you approach them and ask questions but they arenít seeking you out. I thought the meet and greet would be a great place to socialize but just ended up being lots of people getting in line to get the stuff they paid for and getting a plate of free food, not very social. Even the Camaro folks in my hotel stayed to themselves and never struck up conversation, heck, couldnít even get a wave on the street from most Camaro folks while driving my own ZL1.
I guess everyone is busy doing there own thing and hanging with their clubs and friends and hanging around their own cars.
Iím not being critical of the event, Iíll go again, just sharing my disappointment in the social aspect of it. I wanted to hang out with some cool Camaro folks and drink some beers and chat about our cars, but just never felt a place to do that.
Maybe its due to our hotel being across the street and not having a car or ďcampĒ in the main parking lot, Iíll try that next year I think.

Iím curious of the number of cars this year vs last year, felt like less to me. Wonder if that was just my impression because of the change in where Camaro parking was this year?

Anyway, much appreciation to all the folks who put in the work and allow us to have CamaroFest

Interesting. I didn't find this to be the case at all. I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott as well (mine was the 50th anniversary car in the lot) and I literally met 10 people before I made it back out to my car.

Everyone I passed in the lot gave me a head nod, met dozens of folks asking questions and looking over my car and got a wave from better than 1/2 of the Camaros (and some Vette Owners) I passed on the road.

They don't fit in a gen 6 Camaro. LOL Already been there. Maybe if you make the board skinnier.

But it is a great idea along with some suds to improve the shooting and the social aspect. I think most car events are crowds keeping to themselves. But sometimes you can break the ice if you try.

Just returned from the Fest my 1st trip to one since the 1st one in GA. Good times hot as heck but still good times.

Seeing that I have setup many cars shows and events I know what kind of undertaking these kinds of events take and my hats off to all of those involved from the organizers, volunteers, and sponsors. The real success is when the car owners come out to the event to participate this is why those of us who put on events continue to put them on.

When I had my 2015 Mustang GT PP, I took it to Myrtle Beach Mustang week and was there for a day. Pretty much the same thing. Vendors everywhere selling their stuff, burn out comps, idiots doing them leaving, etc. It was stupid hot in July, which didn't help. Cars and Coffee is very similar. I see a lot of affluent folks who love all the attention their trophy cars get them, different strokes for different folks.

The first rule of the secret parking lot click is you do not talk about the secret parking lot click!


(also... as a grammar nazi, it was painful to write click instead of clique...lmao)
