Park next to islands, but for now, she doesnt go to malls often. Shes my daily, but ill take another car shopping if i have to. Camaro get ways too much attention, especially in bright colors such as IOM and yellow. Way too many jealous people out there.

As soon as you buy a car like this for your daily driver it becomes impossible to "protect" it from all the pitfalls out there! The best thing you can do is mentally prepare your self for the big let-down when you come out of the grocery store to find that first door ding. There really is nothing you can do. It seems it doesn't matter where you take your car it will draw attention. I won't matter where you park it, some a##hole will park next to you too close and smack your car. The more you drive it, the higher the chances of a something happening that is out of your control like someone else hitting you in traffic. I have lived in Toronto for a while, I know what it is like.

Hard to Protect

Hello, I must admit this is quite a dilemma, I want to drive the car everywhere, yet I know the dangers of doing so.

What I do is drive the car whenever and wherever I can with the understanding that I must be able to park it in a safe location:

- no shopping malls
- no restaurant parking lots
- no parking on the street (out of sight)

My previous car, 2002 Firebird Firehawk was unscathed when I sold it this past June.

Thanks,

Kelly
