Yeah, I know what you mean. A large number of those you see on the road now were probably purchased by people who found out about it this year. And some of those probably took delivery within 2 months of placing the order. I guess that's the price I pay for being crazy enough to pre-order last fall.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

I'm probably opposite of most, but I think it's GREAT to see zillions of Camaros. This means there's a hot car out there that GM is selling the crap out of, which in turn means with demand, more cars will be built, saving more jobs, i.e. helping to turn things around at GM. I love the looks of the 5th gen, and I doubt if I'll ever get tired of looking at it. I just wish there were more out there. I've only seen about 7 this entire week from SC to Illinois! And one (white) was at Adventure Chevy in Dalton. I keep thinking with 55K plus already built, where are they???

Heheheh, it's a big country(s) that all these cars went to. Also, 55K built isn't very many, but they have only been building since March, and in full production since June, sooo.. If I remember correctly from a show I recently saw on NatGeo, the first year Camaro produced over 200K units, I'll bet people saw them all over the place at the end of that production run

I've only seen a couple on the road here in Nassau County and I passed one going in the opposite direction on Jericho Turnpike Saturday morning (RY w/ black stripes) Anyone from this site? It was exciting seeing another one while driving mine.

Agreed. Seems like the only ones I see are the same ones I've started to see. A black SS going the opposite way as I head to work in the morning; a silver V6 on the way home; an orange V6 at a local business; another RJT 2SS like mine only less the stripes often driving by my business (and beeping when he sees me ). Then the peppering of one here, one there, on much rarer occasions. Oh, and the 22 on the lot at my dealer and the 30+ on the lot at Paddock...

RJT 2SS/RS roared to life March 16th, 2009

A dark red SS, a Black V6 and a Yellow V6. In order of spottings from first to lass.

When I left the states MAYBE 3 or 4 and those where the same ones being purchased when I bought mine I would imagine we are no longer a rare commodity
