Daily for every summers day! Then my magnum will be my summer/winter car.

2SS/RS as a DD for me... I shudder at driving it in the snow this winter, but like someone else said... I am not paying for something that's just going to sit around for months at a time... I'm going to drive it and enjoy it

I will be driving mine every chance I get, including to work every day. The only exception will be in the snow. Will take the neon back from my 16 year old on snowy days.

I'm not going to worry about the miles....i'm buying the Camaro to enjoy it and i'm definately going to enjoy every mile I put on that baby.
That's my plan as well - driving the Camaro whenever I can, but leaving it safe & sound in the garage when the roads are covered in slush and salt.

This car was designed as a daily driver.

If your Camaro is a collector then of course you don't drive it daily. But that's normal for any collector car.

My Z 06 is my DD and has 90k miles on it. Cant see why the Camaro could not do the same. These things are meant to be driven and enjoyed!

The car is a solid dependable daily driver. Other than expected wear items I have had the HVAC control unit crap out and the oil pressure sending unit fail. And that's it. She can still pull a mid 12 quarter, hang with the high dollar stuff on track days and get 30 mpg on the highway in easy cruise.

If I had one negative to the car it would be water leaks. No garage here and after a heavy rain water always finds new and different ways to soak the carpet.

I got the car with 54k miles on it. Paid 22k and though I got a bargain. Now they are going for under 20k all day. These things are a bargain and great fun.

For a solid roof, the water leaks surprise me. Other than that, I'd like to see how a "high-dollar" exotic car does with 90k on it!
