Maybe? A nice car is a nice car and yours has plenty of mods. Mod any car enough and it's a head turner regardless of age or style.

I don't think that was the point of the discussion though.

They don't tend to come looking like yours.

Drive one off the lot and see how many heads turn. Around here it'd be zero because I'd pass 5 others on my way from the Dealer to home.

True, my bad. I still think the 5th gen holds up but then again I never keep my cars' appearance stock

I have a heritage grill, tints and black zl1 wheels as my only exterior mods and I get compliments everywhere I go, and there are tons of 5 gens around here. I never get bored at looking at these cars.

Lol... You can say whatever you want but I have ppl still taking pics of my car! Even when I drove my 13 V6 off the lot ppl was still looking hard and it didn't have any mods! Maybe you need a car with no styling! The 5th was striking before so it still is! Trade your car in for a Prius I guess!

Yup ! This would cause attention and a lot of stares more than this 6th Gen that's running around! And I would definitely get this but not the thing running around here with wrap on it! But oh , well!

Not sure why you're so worked up over the idea that in my area these cars aren't really a big deal any more. I'm just reporting the situation here as I see it. Maybe in areas where there's not a lot of interest or or people can't afford a $25,000 car they're still a big deal?

Around here every kid with a job and old guy that wants a weekend fun car seems to have one.

That wasn't the case back in 2011 when I bought mine. It DID get looks and sparked conversation. For me, where I live, that has changed - your mileage may vary...literally, I guess.

If anything, I'm jealous of you guys that still think you're...err, still are getting looked at. I miss those days...and if these renderings are even close, they're not coming back anytime soon.

(and no, that doesn't mean it's a bad design at all, it was and is a great looking car - it's just not the novelty it once was)

You think it's like the caddy campaign where there's a ats behind them?

Where I am seems like every middle aged secretary has them

Who gives a shit if your car gets looks or not? I didn't buy my Camaro because I want people to look at me. I bought it because it's a bad ass car and I want to try auto crossing or open track days.

Cool. I'm sure lots of people bought the car for performance reasons.

Lots of other people bought the car because of how it looks and the attention it draws.

Some even get perturbed when you suggest they might not be getting looked at any more.

To each his own. We all still dig the Camaro, right? We're on the same team.
