Very interesting thread. A persons age and new car purchasing experience might apply. Regardless of your age, most eveyone on this Board was attracted to the new Camaro at first sight. Do not think anyone is going to buy a Camaro because it is "practical". Myself, it was instant love when I first saw pictures of the concept. I thought long and hard before placing my order for a 2011 2LT May 18th. I had two cars, and one is only a seldom driven summer car never driven in snow 1998 Buick Riviera, pearl white (I am a US expat living in Canada). Many family connections/memories with the low mileage Riviera, and it will never be sold, but passed down to family members in the future. My trade-in, 1996 Sebring LXI coupe, white over silver, looked and drove like new. Loved my Sebring, and hated to trade it, could have driven it for another 8 years trouble free. Why the Camaro...question to myself, could I see myself driving a 2011 Camaro and enjoying it for the next 15 years? Yes! I am already a low mile driver, the Camaro will be my daily driver, and in 15 years I still might be driving my 2011 Camaro with not much more than 60,000 miles, when I am age 74.
My choice to buy the Camaro is it is a car I will take care of and I plan to enjoy for many years to come. In 15 years I might be an old fart driving an old Camaro, but personally I will be happy with my decision.

The only way that I will get rid of mine is if the upcoming Z28 has a significant performance increase over the SS..... AND....... they don't ruin the exterior looks. I am one of those that are of the mindset that anything other than small, very small, cosmetic changes will destroy the exterior appearance of this beautiful machine.

I bought mine as a keeper. Not as an investment but a keeper none the less.

yes a keeper

I have a tendency for keeping cars for a long time. I hadn't bought a car in 22 years. I'll keep it because I like the look. As an investment production numbers will be to high and overall innovation doesn't set it a part for others. Design is it many feature. It's a best car out there, right now. A production Z28 or something supercharged in limited production would be an investment. Just my thought. For what it's worth.

Like my 89 Silverado, my 2010 will also be a keeper. I regretted years ago selling my 68 RS/SS to my brother-in-law, but that's what happens when your starting a new family. My kids are already fighting over who gets to inherit the car and truck. One of them may end up with the 2010 sooner than they think, if the Z28 is done right.

Long live the Camaro!

I had a 68 with a 68 vett 350 with 375 hp and a 4 speed rock crusher in it. Life got in the way and it had to be traded. The 2010 I have now is twice the car. Better ride better handeling better sound system and I missed my 68 a lot until I got my new baby. MY life will have to get in the way before I get rid of it. It is just too much FUN

The 2010 Camaro could be a collector car some day..and for that reason I will keep the car unless life forces me to sell it.I have a numbers matching 69 Z28 and a 69 SS 396 car that doesn't have the original engine.My 2010 2SS/RS IOM M6 is paid for so i really don't forsee me getting rid of it and remember that with the green movement,oil situation...how long will they continue to make such cars..who knows.
