Vette to Camaro

A beloved Chevrolet owner of many years including camaro's in the 70's and 80's...previous owner of three c4's and two c5's...I traded in my 2000 vette for a new 2011 Rs 2lt Monday night...pick up on Wednesday morning. I test drove a 2010 Rs and really liked it...so much me and the wife went for the camaro....looking forward to the new ride...some are going to say I am stupid for doing this but I was ready for a change....

My wife and I bought a 1999 Vette and picked it up at the Corvette Museum. We drove the wheels off that car. After renting Camaros and driving them around. I like the Camaro better, but I definetly would get it with a V8, too many years of driving fast cars to go with a V6 now. Good luck with your new car.

I have a 2006 Vette and I will never let it go planning on getting a Camaro V6 Vert as a daily driver! The best of both worlds!

This world is going to hell. A corvette guy trades for a V-6 camaro when there is still a V-8 option available.

Anyhow, hope you enjoy it.
