2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Graybeard Approved

It's been a little while since I've driven our Camaro and I was reminded how much fun this car is within a second of firing up the engine. It's that engine and the resounded roar it makes in a parking garage.

First thing I did for the weekend was to go out and shoot a round. In the parking lot of the club, an older guy drove up in his shiny black ML and asked if I liked the Camaro. From experience, people usually ask about a car because either they own one, or want one. If I don't like the car, I don't slam it and offend the person. There is such a thing as constructive criticism. But I don't have a lot of negatives for this car because I realize what it is: a toy.

"So how do you like the Camaro?" the gent with the receding hairline asked asked. After a moment of thought I replied, "To be honest, this thing is a blast to drive." The guy looked at me with a smile. "Yeah, I've been looking at these pretty hard."

The Camaro made my weekend fun because I was able to blip shift this thing so easily. It had motor to blast down the freeway and pass at will. It has the added bonus that it does it all with an awesome engine note. On top of all that it looks mean. It was turning heads all weekend from all kinds of folks, both young and old. But it was graybeard in the second generation Firebird that came bombing up next to me on the freeway, gave the car a look over, flashed me a smile and a thumbs up before he blasted off again that really made my weekend.

I agree with your, Sir. It is pretty cool.
