Wondering what type of age ranges we have around? I've been looking and considering a SS the last week but keep coming back to one thing...saying to myself the SS might be to "young" for me. I don't want to be "that guy" if you know what I mean!?

So a pretty quick and simple question for you current or soon to be SS owner...how old?

Ill be buyin one!! And I'm 21 in June. Also there is a new SRT-4 guy (I think he said he was like 35) around here with is SRT runnin [email protected] close to 10's if not IN the 10's now!!! And he said he'll probably be gettin an SS for a daily driver!! That's awesome! You're only as old as you feel man! Don't buy anything based on what other people will think of you!! Buy it for YOU!!!

The only drawback that usually pulls its appeal from the "older" crowd (sorry no offense- just lack of a better word) is the wing. Most of them like the more subtle spoilers of the muscle car days, and there is nothing wrong with that I like those too.

I was in the same state of mind as you but then I just decided I really like this car and it's performance. Plus I'm looking at staying around the 20k range and the SS is right there. It's definetly a good car for the money! Anyway, I plan on getting one late this year in black of course. Just my opinion.

By the way I'm 31.

Heck yeah black is an awesome color for a sports car!!
And that gives proof to what I said about only bein as old as you feel.
Aging is ineveitable growing up is not!! I know people my age (20-21) that already act like they are married with 4 kids and a station wagon and even though we are friends still, I cant stand to hang with them cuz they are just so boring! Seriously there are senior citizens that get out and can outdo many people half their age! Live long, live strong, but most importantly live young at heart!!!!

My folks say Im too old for this car and Im like IM 20!!!! What teenager do you know that can afford this on his own easily?!??! Other than a select few w/ awesome jobs and the others that their parents buy them everything they want!! This car is aimed generally higher than a teenager!

Definitely not marketed for a teenager. Besides them not being able to afford it, I don't think most 16-17 yo drivers are responsible enough to handle a car with that kind of power.

Oh and just to enhance my point look at the poll on this thread!
There are more people over 30 that have bought or plannin to buy this car than teenagers! More power to em I say!

Yeah exactly, I didnt think of that part but its very true, too many kids get released on cars they have no business driving. Theres a pic of a totaled SRT-4 on this forum somewhere. It was a girl that was (again spoiled rotten) WANTED a yellow neon, parents went to the lot, only yellow neon was the SRT-4 model, She wound up with it drivin too fast, lost it and over corrected! Flipped it! But I think she came out ok. And another girl in my area several yars ago: Dad bought her a brand new Z28, she wrecked it, He went back and bought her another JUST LIKE IT!!! She hit a tree off a corner two weeks later, sadly she didnt make it. But people should learn from things like this!

I do and don't agree becasue i know a few people who own cars like SRT-4's and VW R32's so they can hadle the power but some are given thouse cars so i dont know and i have a Camaro since i was 16 so i have gotten used to RWD and i love it but i need a FWD for the damn snow in my area and i wanted a ca that had some power but was good in snow or better than my Camaro.

Neat to see people over 18 buying sport compacts. I'm only 26, and sometimes I even feel too old for these cars lol But they are cheap and fun
