THIS!

I get a lot of shit form people and just ignore them. My wife will be getting a new Prius this spring (don't want to buy a new car in the winter) and I know she will catch hell from people, never mind her current one is almost 9.

It took us years to get where we are and I'm damn proud of what we have both done.

Wait until the Camaro is gone and there is a Vette in it;s place!

I was expecting a lot of shit when I bought my car. In fact I set myself up for some of it joking about an early mid life crisis (since I'm 39). To my surprise I don't think I've ever had any real negative or hateful comments about it or my ability to make responsible decisions.

Mine is practically a daily driver with almost 50k on it now, but any time I'm feeling short on compliments all I have to do is wash it with a spray detail to make it shine and anywhere I go someone is telling me how much they like my car.

I'm 28 and not to being bragging or selfish but I have had people that are jealous of me my whole life and having three Camaro's doesn't help. I'm not going to sell any of them just to suit someone else because I personal found over the years you can't make people non jealous of you because there is always something they want that you have and most of the time they are not willing to work as hard as you did to get it. I also don't talk about my cars to many people because I know it's just an opening for them to say something smart or out of jealousy. I can appreciate anyone's car whether it be a ford, dodge and or an import because it's there passion and who am I to say otherwise.
Long story short, I have two good jobs and I do get some compliments but I get a lot of haters to and as long as your happy about your camaro who care what they say in the end it's not theirs!

I seen that a few months ago but that's to much for my pocketbook.
Unless I hit the lottery, then that'll be my 1st stop.

I can relate, got my first Camaro at 23 right out of college and moved on to my second at 24. I'm 25 now and also drive a 2017 Acadia Denali (share with the wife), have 2 other cars and get sh** from people every now and then but like everyone else has said I've paid my dues and worked hard to get where I'm at so why not buy things I like. Work hard play hard is what I was taught. Enjoy what you've accomplished and live life how you want, not how someone else says you should.

I think it just comes with territory. I am 27 and I am often asked how can I afford such a car? I pay them no mind because I can hardly hear them over the sound of that glorious V8 engine.

24 traditionally would be the perfect age for a Camaro SS. Why are people worried about what you are driving?

I've only received compliments on the Camaro, sometimes I wish I had waited and bought something a little more luxury oriented but as soon as I step on that pedal I am reassured of my purchase :P. This car is definitely one I am going to keep as long at its running even after I move on other vehicles.

Also glad I only have to work one job for it! I admire you guys work ethic who are working multiple jobs! My ONE job is a handful,I tell people who ask me what I do for a living that I am a Dog Catcher/Garbage man
