Drove a Camaro today

Yep my dad came to visit me at college and showed up in a black rented 1LT Camaro! So he let me drive it. It isnt great visability, but it was fun to drive



Sure, you are probably thinking "pshh Its my daily driver", but Im only 18 and Im in a town with only 4 Camaros.

Cool Dad!

I don't think visibility is always a problem...but when the driver's seat is too low...I can't see s**t.

you get used to the visibility...after a week or 2, it's not an issue.

For tank drivers and snipers, it's a step up. You do get used to it though if you drive it enough. Then, get out of a Camaro and step into say, our GMC, and you are amazed at the size of the windshield in comparison going the other way.

It just got difficult when driving up hills and turning corners, but I would get used to it quickly. Too bad I have to wait to get a Camaro

if you get a camaro, driving it will be like learning how to tie your shoes. kinda different at first but then it becomes just part of your every day routine. no visibility issues here.
