Hell yes! A Camaro is a Camaro, and I especially couldn't pass one up that is as good as the 5th Gen.

Better off to buy a model one and put it on a shelf.

Passion-wise, you want to say yes. Practicality-wise I have to say probably not. This is providing the doors go closed.

When/if everyone buys one, and the industry flips over and dies, then you'll have a Camaro. This is the good part. If the window motor fries, or you need to replace a headlamp after a rock (God forbid) breaks it, or the transmission toasts, then warranty or not, you're stuck with having to find parts for it. Imagine a new car and you're out there looking for NOS parts for it just like it was a an old classic...and used parts probably won't be out there either.

Dicey proposition, unless you just keep it in the garage. Which brings me back to the point of getting the smaller version that sits on your desk. A lot cheaper.

I say that because I haven't bought one yet. We have two perfectly fine 4th Gens right now that makes me happy, so I guess if I didn't have any, I'd probably change my tune.

el ess X:Well Isuzu Motors went out of business 2 years ago, but their warranty and repair is still open, and it's still ranked highly for maintenance and repair. Keep in mind that all of Isuzu cars were rebadged GM vehicles. If GM does go outta business (unlikely) I think one of the smarter things they would do this decade is keep their warranty and repair services open.

In business or not, the parts are still available for every model for at least 10 years.

Hell yes. Besides the Autozone commercial says it best: After 36,000 miles you are the warranty.
