2010 Chevrolet Camaro: Wave Like A Man, Part Two
March 01, 2010
Back in October Oldham was driving our long-term Camaro and wondered why a guy in a '69 Camaro didn't acknowledge his presence via a wave or nod. Well, I've been driving our Camaro for a few weeks now and have encountered the same thing. First it was an older guy driving a blue first-generation Camaro. Since then I've been around a fourth-generation Camaro (admittedtly, a beat-up V6) and two 2010 Camaros (both SS models) and haven't gotten any interaction.
Now, it's not my car, so I don't feel a need to be part of some sort of club or anything. And I will certainly allow that four cars is a small sampling -- perhaps it's just coincidence that these other drivers were all business (or just too cool for school). But I feel a little bit like a researcher of the Camaro culture while driving our long-termer, and my initial hypothesis -- that Camaro owners would want to acknowledge the car's rebirth -- would seem to be wrong.
