Looking back from day 1

Just wanted to know if you guys have any regrets buying a camaro? Would you buy another one in the future? How do you feel about the money invested in your cars?! Do you regret not buying something else?

For my first car I am happy, still get excited to drive the car everyday.

My next car will be a v8 camaro though, and i'll use the 6 as my daily.

The only regret is I didn't go ahead and get a SS from the start. Loved the 1LT, but it was just a 8-month stepping stone up to my SS.

I regret not spending the extra on a 2SS. There were only 2 1LE's within 300 miles of me at the time and I chose the less expensive 1SS. I then added leather through the dealership and it has been a nightmare. Almost 4 months later, I am still getting the leather issue resolved.

Very happy with my 1SS/RS.
Added the Bluetooth module and console gauge package within the 1st month of ownership.
Engine bolt-ons and Pedders suspension inserts have made this car "mine".
I would create this exact car again

Just like others have mentioned. I regret not getting the 2ss 1le when I had the chance. Now I have to wait. And theres no hope for a 13 1LE anymore. They seem to be all sold in my area. Other than that, the 1LT is awesome. Responds very well..

similar to many others, my regret is not getting it right the first time. 2LT ---> 2SS/1LE... but its ok, as the $$ loss was worth the price of complete satisfaction for me.

Future Camaro?
Very possible. Depends on my needs.

only if you mean investing in happiness... Camaro's drain $$ for sure.. gas and mod bugs

Regret not buying something else?
Not at all.. Nothing comes close when looking at other cars for same value or less.
