SS/RS, 1LT/RS, 2LT/RS owners....

I have owned my Camaro 2LS since last May and absolutely love it. But sometimes when I get up next to a SS or even a LT with the R/S package, I cant help but feel like the person in that car looks at me and is saying.."get a real Camaro buddy"! What is the general consensus of the LS Camaro?

There are LS LT SS 1LE & ZL1 for different reasons. They are choices. You chose your 2LS for whatever reasons you had.

Preference. Affordability. Whatever.

There will always be another car out there that has more luxuries, more performance, more economical and/or better looks.

Just be happy with the car that you have.

If you feel that need a different car to hold up to other people's opinions, then turn over your keys and just ride a bus. JK.

I don't think they are thinking that. I actually considered buying a V6...but then I got a better deal on the SS I have. And even if not for the deal I personally knew that I would have had an inferiority complex as soon as an SS pulled up. But now that I have an SS, I don't feel superior to any V6 out there. Heck I LOVE when another Camaro, V6 OR V8, pulls up next to me. And I'll drive normal or give it some gas regardless!! Because it's fun!! And it looks cool as hell when 2 Camaros are driving side by side!!

I personally think that all trim packages exist for a specific reason and I like them all. I even like the LS rims...they look badass to me, as I stated in another thread!! In fact, the LS is probably the way to go if you plan on serious exterior and performance mods. I mean why buy the optioned out model just to buy new rims, a body kit, an exhaust, a sound system, and then twin turb that ***** (excuse my language, lol!!) ??!! And look at it this way, some people simply like the body style. Some people want a 2 door car that is sporty and moderately fast with good gas mileage. This is who the LS targets. Because if it weren't for the LS, those people would buy a stripped down 2 door Altima. So Chevy and Ford and Dodge made a way to get this cool body style without all the extras at a competitive price. And look at it this way, my SS sucks up around $60 a week in gas. That comes out to $240/month. And I work 3 nights a week with approx a 15 mile commute. Outside of that I drive 6 miles round trip to my gym every day. If I had a family or worked 60 miles away then I would be nuts to keep this car, lol!!

So in my opinion, the LS is a great package. And even among the SS guys the 2SS/RS LS3 guys look down at the 1SS L99 guys. And someone with a 2013 2SS/RS convertible can look down at my 2010 2SS/RS LS3. And even if you did have an LT/RS or an SS of any year, the GT-500 and ZL-1 and Vette guys would look down at you. And the ZR-1, Viper, GT-R, Lambo, Ferrari guys look down at them. There is always something bigger, better, and badder...

Well the good news is, you can always look down on a Genesis. But seriously, Own the vehicle you drive. I drive out of my way sometimes just so I can drive my car that much more. I wash it a retarded number of times because whenever it stops raining here it gets washed so for the 1 day its sunny it'll look nice. And for anyone who looks down at you for the vehicle you own. You paid for the car not them. To hell what anyone else thinks. Unless you own a civic. Or the fore mentioned Genesis.

I love to see any Camaro's on the road, and love to give them the high five for a great choice in cars no matter what level they chose for any reason. They are all part of the Camaro fever craze!

I've noticed that the guys driving the 6s are the ones usually avoiding eye contact. I've even been right next to them at red lights and they stare the other way, especially if theyve got a girlfriend/wife in the car.
Only 1 exception was a guy with a rare around here fellow green colored 2010 6 pulled up and made a big deal that there were the 2 of us green guys next to each other.
All in all it seems around here anyway (NE Ohio) the black guys are more enthusiastic about their rides than us whiteys and always get a thumbs up no matter what theyre driving.

The only experience I have had like this was when I took Baby to her first cruise night. I was parked next to another 2SS/RS in IOM and a guy came in with a Black 2SS/RS. He acted like he had the perfect car. He had such a case of head in butt disease it was rediculous. Even though we all had the same car, he thought he was superior just because his car was black!!! Other than that it's all been good!
