my wife didn't like the low seating position and limited visibility in a C5/6 as a passenger even - but the Camaro she likes. So there must be some difference.
As a driver - I agree you still seem to sit pretty low even in a Camaro.
But I'm not going to argue with the point - because I love the Camaro even more than the C5/6's I owed! So I'm rolling with it!

My play toy is my 71 - and I drive that a few times a month typically. I drive the SS a lot more - about as much as I drive anything, but I have 3 cars and a truck so I spread the wealth a bit and that's why I still only have 12K after 3 years.

I hear this buy a ZL1 instead of the SS. I have owned both. The problem is the ZL1 is just too much for the street. You cannot let it all hang out for very long or often. And the ZL1 will take a much bigger depreciation hit than other Camaros.

And while the SS/LT1 is fast, it's power level is much more usable on the street so to me was more fun as a driver. And there is the SS 1LE which handles just like a ZL1, but is more tossable like the SS. And it will not punish your normal driving experience. Even more BMWish than the older BMWs and with a ripping small block Chevy.

It just may be the ultimate Camaro ever.
