Camaro owner prescreening

Ok guys, I may sound crazy here but I need to rant a minute...

I work for THE Cleveland Clinic and I'm quite surprised I haven't seen a few more Camaros around here.... everywhere

I finally spot a silver V6 leaving work the one day. She wouldn't play with me on the highway. Strike 1.
Leaving work yesterday morning I spot the car in the parking lot in between 2 other cars. Strike 2.
I walk by shaking my head knowing this girl is asking for dents knowing how wide the cars are and how tight of parking spaces. As I glanced back out of the corner of my eye I catch her parking sticker....crooked in the middle of the windshield. Strike 3.

I walked over to my car (parked near no one) shaking my head in disgust.


Maybe it's me, out of my love and enthusiasm for these cars, but I think if you're buying a Camaro you should have to go through a screening process beforehand. If you want to treat a car with disrespect...let it be something like a Prius




That is all

You're absolutely right. Also, it pisses me off when I see someone else in a 5th Gen and I give 'em a smile and wave, and they don't even acknowledge it. Idk, I guess I feel like we're all connected through these cars, but I guess to some people it was just the cool thing at the time.

The Camaro is 100 hp past its competition. The V6 is running with the top of the competition. In other words, if these cars are the whipped cream and the lower trims are the shake, the Camaro V6 is the cherry on top, and the Camaro SS is the person eating the whole ****ed thing.

You might be on to something, but this is America. You all, and the members of this forum are "enthusiasts", and these owners you've run across are just car owners. They may merely see their Camaros as a form of transportation. The other female owner may just see her Camaro as a "cute" car. In a few years, it won't be so cute, all dimple-dented up. The drivers that pass by without a wave or gesture may just be arrogant people because they had the means to be fortunate to get one while they are early in their production; just to say they have one.

I don't have mine yet, but I try to give the owners a wave, or thumbs up! I've, also, gotten a bag of mixed results! Maybe, before purchasing, they should be given a psychological evaluation like police recruits are subjected to!

These are Camaros, not Ferraris

Most Camaro owners drive them, well, like everyday cars. Most Camaro owners do not race other cars. Most Camaro owners park next to other cars in the parking lot. Just a few of the many facts of life

I also feel "connected" to others who share my car interests. I have already warned my family members that I'll be parking in the nose bleed section to avoid dings, etc. And unless you're completely oblivious while driving, how hard is it to give a smile and/or quick wave to a fellow Camaro owner. Have some pride, people.

Maybe it's just me, but if you spend all that money on a vehicle, why trash it??? She should be respected and treated well. It's just my opinion so don't hate on me for it.

Some ppl just view a car as an object. It's upsetting to see how some ppl treat their cars. I've only seen three new Camaros on the road and all of them have waved back. I agree, why pay so much for a car and then treat it like s**t. It's the second largest investment next to your home.
