What kind of Camaro owner will you be?

Will you be the one who has been dying for the Camaro because you want to sit it with the other ones you have in the garage?

Are you looking for the next fastest thing to rip down the road or the track?

Are you going to go nuts with modifications and then just take it to car shows and let everyone stroke your ego with how great your car is that you never ever use?

- - - - - - - - - - - -

I'm going to be the one who dreamed of buying a brand new Camaro, but was only 19 when the last one rolled off the assembly line. I'm also going to thrash it whenever possible (street, track, etc). It will also shine right up and sit proudly at car shows and cruise ins. I'll be proud to talk about my car, but I'll put my money where my mouth is when I say I can whip the stink out of that Mustang.

I will be buying a performance car to USE the performance.

Who will you be?

Amen to you my brother!

I am going to buy it, try not to thrash it too much, spank some Fords, Dodges, and anything that comes along, and maybe, just maybe, shine it up nice before I go to a show. If there is no time to wash it, then oh well. Anyone who wants to talk smack, can meet me in the parking lot for directions to the closest freeway and a lesson in humility.

I'm buying a 4 seater Corvette. I love my current car, and it's great for daily driving and autocrossing (my #1 hobby). But it's not practical when you have 2 kids. I've got a truck for those times, but it's not the same.

I've always loved the Camaros. Especially Gen 1, but there's no way I'd turn down any of them.

But when I saw the concept the first time, I think I heard angels singing, I swear it. So, from that point on, I knew I would be waiting until it came out to get my next car. Funny, right about that time I was considering a Mustang because it was the only new "muscle" car. Then a higher power intervened and showed me that photo.

I'm going to drive the crap out of my car, and give it the love it needs as well.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

I wanted to buy a WS6 in 2000...but just couldn't afford it at the time. So I always looked forward to the 5th gen and hoped that I'd be able to afford one. I've had lots of "fun cars" in the past...but they've never been perfect and I never had the $$ (or in some cases the time) to make them perfect. I've always been a perfectionist, and the little things always pissed me off about my cars. So, I've been looking forward to ordering one exactly how I want it (hopefully), and keeping it as close to "new" as possible.

Oh coarse I'll enjoy it...I'll drive it like it's meant to be driven but not to the point where I'll be putting a new clutch in it every year. I'll probably mod it a little, but not go too crazy (for a while at least). And yes, the first time I saw it in person, I knew I would own one...I just stood there and stared for a good 15 minutes.

Im going to be the loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, and the powerless because we are living in a world of criminals that operate above the law. I cant stand those criminals. I have to do something. There comes a time in a man life when he realizes that one man can make a difference. I believe I'm that man and I will have the right car to do it. Its just something about this car. Something about her. Maybe I wont do it for the money, i did it for the car. Victory Red, Artic White, or *joyful sigh* Jinx Blue begging to be plucked. Because I just the thrill of the adventure. No, No..........the peace with one's self. Because in those 13 seconds and prolly less,.....Im free. While in my car, nothing else matters. Not the car payment. Not the high insurance rates. Not even those ricers that revved at me but couldnt keep up.

It will be my first convertible. Somewhat a DD in the summer. If I get around to it maybe a few passes down the 1/4 mile.

Mainly a cruiser

Mainly a spring-summer-fall daily driver much like my 4th Gen is.

It'll see the dragstrip from time to time, but I'd really like to get this one out on the twisties on road courses & autocross.

Is it February yet?

It's going to be a highly abused every bolt on I can find DD. It'll see a some track duty but not as much as my Z did and will again.

I'd track it. And I don't mean 1/4 mile...

I like turns.
