I personally can't imagine ever wanting to part with mine, no matter what comes next. I'm curious on what they have planned to get us to move onward and upward but I'm in no hurry. This is still my dream car and most of my attraction is the styling. I waited 25 years for GM to build this car and never thought it would happen.

If I did get a newer one it would likely be a DD. I think this gen has a bit of special magic to it for a lot of people, including myself. I'll always keep this one as my toy.

Just curiosity on my part. Having read some of the rumors I can't help but be anxious to see it. I'll be keeping mine for a long, long time regardless and I guess to some degree I'm wondering they'll come out with something so great that I'll regret my commitment to this one. Won't matter, as of a week from tomorrow I'll have so much much money in my 2012 that it will be out of the question to trade it. Maggie, ZL1 fuel pump and all going in starting Monday, but I'm still curious to see the new one.

I love how folks with the 5th Gen Camaro say they would never part with their car.. I bet when Chevy/GM comes out with a 6th Gen Z28 with incredible Stats, everyone and his brother and sister will be in line to get one and I'm sure quite a few will be trading in a 5th Gen for it... And if they produce a 6th Gen with a 7.0L(just a thought) plenty would probably be getting rid of their ZL1 too. As of last week, here in Phila., PA, I have seen so many Used 5th Gen Camaros including some ZL1s already.. I would like to see the 6th Gen arrive sooner because there are way too many 5th Gen Camaros around, they don't seem special any more...

Poeple are always curious about the future.

Decrease in value?
Anyone notice that 4th gens were a dime a dozen 5 years ago, and now they are insanely priced?
I passed on a few $4-5000 SS's before the 5th gen was out. Now they are $10K cars.
I think ours will hold their own.
The 6th gen may be a turd....never know.
1st Gen = Bad ASS
2nd Gen = Meh
3rd Gen = Excellent
4th Gen = Decent
5th Gen = Awesome
6th Gen = ? (if it has 2nd Gen style, I'll pass)
Bring back the square look! IROC style!

6th gen wont be a turd cause it will be on the same paltform as the ATS, which is lighter(the biggest problem of the Camaro right now, making it slower and less fuel efficient), and it will have the new LT1; more hp/tq!!

Plus the it will probably look better!

Its a big win IMO.

That beeing said, its not out yet and 5th gen owner have a lot of time to enjoy their ride before its out!!

In my area i hardly see any Camaro's and if i do it's mainly a V6. Very few SS's and i've seen only 1 ZL1 and i don't think it was from around here.

With the exception of the 1st Gen all of the others were around for quite a few years. I don't believe we will see the 6th Gen for a while.

People need to listen to this guy more often. Fenwick is one of the most informed posters when it comes to what's going on.

Plain and simple thats it. The 5th gen was a great hit for GM, but with the new mustang coming out the 6th gen camaro will be needed right away.
