    Oh don't worry, within the next few years, C7s will be EVERYWHERE and won't really get you much attention. Why? Because its a fantastic vehicle and should be reasonable to maintain and repair as well (compare that with a Porsche!).

    For all of the attention that the C7's draw (and rightly so), my eyes instantly went to the 1969 Dodge Super Bee in the photo above instead.

    I had C5 ('99 Vert in Sebring Silver & black) and even though it had been out for a few years, I still had people wave and chat me up at gas stations and such. Vettes just have a magnetic draw for some reason, at least in my experiences.

    RE: Camaro drivers, I chalk them up to being the equivalent of Harley riders- too cool for plebes on their plastic-laden motorcycles?

    A 'vette gets more attention from the enthusiast crowd in SoCal because it's really only an enthusiast who buys a 'vette. Driving enthusiasts obviously buy Porsches, too, but the problem is that there are also plenty of status seekers and posers in Porsches. You see a Porsche on the road and you really can't tell who's driving it-- a person who genuinely appreciates the driving experience and knows how it's different from other sports cars, or a badge conscious affluent suburbanite. In SoCal there's an abundance of the latter.
