First off I will say I'm not a 5th gen hater I love them. But after being a member on camaro5 for over a year I come to see how stupid they really are. They seem to have no knowledge what so ever when it comes to cars. 90% of them are v6 owners who think they have a race car because they added a cold air intake. Also the transformers decals need to stop. It's so gay. I used to look at camaro owners and true performance enthusiast. Ever since the new camaro came out it went down hill. There no better then the V6 mustang owners now. No offense to anyone who owns a 5th gen SS. I know some know there stuff. I honestly think none of them knew what a camaro even was until they went and seen transformers. But really, If you don't believe me go on camaro5. Not trying to get anyone mad. Just saying what I seen go on

It's because the car has brought so many new people to Camaro/Chevy/GM. For the longest time, only a minority amount of people actively wanted a Camaro when compared to other choices. With the 5th gen, Chevrolet has a car that appeals to a much larger demographic.

This is not a negative because the more Camaros GM sells, the longer the car will be around. Had the 4th gen received this much attention, the Camaro would have soldiered on (and we may be talking about the upcoming 7th gen). This also means that development will continue to give "diehards" performance options that the masses aren't interested in.

Lastly, everyone starts somewhere. I am sure there are plenty of "new" Camaro owners who have learned a lot about cars and their workings that they would have not have otherwise been exposed to.

So, if one doesn't like the "other" owners, don't associate with them! Those types of people will be on to the next bigger and better thing in a couple years, anyway. On the other hand, some of them might turn out to become great friends.

I can kind of agree with you as well. I have owned 2 - 4th Gen F-Bodys, 1 - 3rd Gen, 1 - 1st Gen as well as many Mustangs. It's the same in both worlds. If it wasn't for the V6 sales the manufactures wouldn't be able to afford to build the V8s. A lot of the parts hype is the fault of some vendors as well making claims of HP gains for things like spark plug wires. Everyone has to start somewhere. Some will become gear-heads and dive into modding their own cars and others will move on to the next trendy car.

My first car was a 68 Camaro so the look is what brought me back to GM and even though it doesn't feel anything like the 68 I love my 10 SS.

And this.

I can deal with the Vette idiots because it's expected. This new crop of Camaro people are really bad. That's part of the reason I wanted to get rid of it so bad. If it wasn't defending myself I was dealing with their idiotic BS and getting in to conversations about which wax is better or how to find a matching jacket. The ownership of this car has severely effected the public opinion. It's not a slow car bit when 4th gen and mustang guys see 700+ tire HP cars run 12's and stock cars run high 13's I can see where they get their opinions.

i was one of those guys who followed the pre-production on the 5th gen, just waiting for it to be avalible to buy. i wanted one so bad i could taste it. when the car finally came out, i rushed to the dealership to finally lay eyes on that coveted prize. i was not impressed, but i had wanted it for so long that i told myself i had to have it anyway. i had to have a bare-bones base model to keep the weight down. i didnt want power windows or fancy blue tooth/navcom crap. i wanted a true muscle car. the dealer looked at me like i was an idiot. all we are going to carry are the 2ss with all the bells and whistles. what you need is the rs/ss with the glow rings around the headlights and the body colored window molding, yada, yada, yada! i went home and told my wife that i no longer wanted that car and i wanted to build my own instead. and that was the birth of my 72 camaro project. now that the 72 is completed, you couldnt give me 10 5th gen camaros for it. im gm to the bone but as much as i hate to say it, fords mustang is way ahead in my opinion.:bomb:

This guy is a douche bag, don't listen to him!

What's up brother!

I have driven a few of them and love them, but miss my 1992 B4C more than any car.

The only thing I dont like about the 5th is the lack of viewability inside.

5th gens are bringing in the normal folks who otherwise would never have thought about getting into a performance car. They are all nooby compared to most of us. Give them a few years and they will be alright. We were all there once. When I first had my car another F-body guy asked me what rear was in it and I said "stock" so a 9 inch or something. He laughed and called me a douche. 9 inch was the only thing I knew about rear ends so I assumed that's what was in it lol. Just remember we were all noobs at one point.

LOLLOL I just had to bring my thread back after I read the matching jacket thing. I was on camaro5 today and they guy said check out my build thread so I clicked the link and it was all stickers and one K&N Filter. I'm banned from many camaro forums because of the fights I get into on them
