Fantastic and God bless! I am going to be 53 this week, and some people look at me as immature for driving this car. I do not care, nor do I let it get to me. I intend to keep driving these cars for as loon as I am able, and hope one day I too can say I am 78 and look at my Camaro! All the best!

All the cars in your sig, do you currently own all of them or have had them in the past? All in all, which one was your favorite or most memorable?

All the bad comments are probably from people who are jealous.
I'm 61 and always wanted a Trans Am with the Bird on the hood but since they don't make them anymore I'll take a Camaro.
This is the last car I'm gonna buy so I made it a good one. I'm just gonna keep on getting it fixed if it starts breaking in 9-10 years unless I drop dead 1st.
Just today the kid at Wendys Drive-thru said to me "I love your car" at least there's some people with good taste.

I'm 72 and this is probably my last car also. Just keep getting it fixed. I get some nice comments from young kids and some twenty-something guys who obviously know a bit about cars. Most surprising was a girl at the lawn mower repair shop, probably not long out of high school, who asked if I had the LT1 engine and did I get the A8 or the manual. Gotta like that.

When I bought mine the people at work were jealous and mad. Why did you get a raise in pay and not me. It went on for a long time. They finally got over it. One guy was always cracking jokes at it. Calling it a " slomero " wile he owns a beat up s-10 with 250,000 miles on it. I final called him out about being jealous and he shut up. You could tell the ones that were jealous because they didn't want to look at it. I didn't get a raise by the way.

Mostly good comments but there was this one guy in a Petco parking lot who was so offended by my car that he said, "Must be nice to be rich!". I'm a 49 year old project manager. Successful but hardly rich. The dude was clearly some kind of Bernie guy if you know what I mean. I told him to go suck Hillary's d**k, which immediately set him off on a tirade of Trump bashing. LOL

I'm turning 21 a week from today... used to drive an '03 cavalier and now drive my SS. Best thing that's ever happened to me and I always get the jealous comments "you could be doing other things with your money" etc...

While I spend disgusting amounts of money on my car others will spend it at a bar or from some dude on a Friday night.. lol

Ive got an 1lt rs the only thing ive done to it is peel coat the wheels and added some pinstripes around the ralley stripes and i get compliments all the time especially since i keep it clean and shining 99% of the time,but the other day at the gym somebody keyed my bumper. Its about a 2 foot long scratch that went into the ralley stripe,im sure i can fix it myself but the stioe will be marked without a fix. When i pulled up there was a couple of teenage kids walking by that gave me some dirty looks,so im guessing it was them

Anyone else around my age feel this way? I guess this part of south jersey they don't see too many loud V8, blacked out Camaros.

I'm newly 24 with two and a half jobs, paid with my own money and been saving my $$ for a few years now. I do work at a College so I guess they think I'm a spoiled college kid or something. Just expressing my thoughts here.
Good for you man. At 70, I like getting the "looks". Everyone who comments says what a cool/good looking I have.

Trans AM depot converts SS Camaros in to various performance levels of Trans AMs. Kind of pricy at $100k+, but unique, and looks to be a high quality conversion.

Got mine at 19.. Let me tell you, people in LA are jealous bunch lol. Bad looks everywhere. Also, some jealousy from 'friends', but that's the way the cookie crumbles, man.

It's jealousy. I think we are all guilty of it in some way. Not going to lie, if I saw a 20 yr old driving a $40-$50k car, I would probably think something similar. But I would never say it out loud. That's where maturity comes in. Also, everyone's story is different so you just cannot assume things. For some reason, it's way easier to hate. It's just an urge more people need to learn how to fight.
