Well I feel better about my miles now. I don't really go too far out of my way not to drive it. It's mostly a weekend car and no salt car. So otherwise it is out and about. Thanks again for the input.

Again who knows what tomorrow will bring, you could end up losing your job, contracting a terminal illness, or have an accident where you will never be able to drive your Camaro again. You better enjoy it while you can. You can always buy another car or have yours restored. Don't waste a day, life's too short to save your car for the next owner.
well said ^^^^^^^^

picked up the Z in aug 2013 with 3 miles on it
8500 miles later and not my daily driver
picked up the ss/1le in dec 2013 with 12 miles almost 5000 miles as of today

Just wondering how many of you who say you bought it to drive and have a lot of miles only have 1 car. Everybodys circumstances are different. If you think low mileage doesn't add valve , your wrong. Someone hit my wifes 2003 Avalanche and totaled it. It had 41000 miles on it, insurance co. added $4975 for low mileage. I'm planning on keeping mine, so I'm not saving it for someone else, I'm saving it for me.

Besides my SS I have a 2011 Harley Davidson Dyna Fat Bob and a 2011 Buick Lacrosse because I have the sickness Gary. If I don't ride or run my SS I start vomiting at random and speaking ancient languages I've never studied, children will go missing, the sea's will boil, and the moon will turn to blood.

Buick is for work at the VA. Veterans won't shut the hell up if you pull in with a muscle car or a Harley, they'll keep you in the parking lot all day, or find you in your office and I'll have to smack them around to make them leave.

The SS is for Kamikaze and Reconnaissance missions.

My Dyna is my main.

In about 1 more year I'll have a Ducati Panigale, well hopefully, and will have officially gone into plaid.

I have no choice in the matter and as a rogue male this is how it is supposed to be. That's what the playbook says anyway.

I'm probably at 12,000 miles a year, still have 2 months to go, but that's what it'll be ish,

my plan is before it hits 50,000 miles buy something else, a 6th gen maybe, and put mine in the garage for special occasions, weekends, road trips, track time, whatever. That way in 20 years I'll still be able to enjoy my car with minimal rebuilds. Frankly it's not possibly having to rebuild the engine, trans, rearend, those sorts of things that bother me, its interior being abused and falling apart. But I keep my car real clean, as clean as a daily driver can be, no french fries sitting in it stinking it up, no kids(actually no one) in the back seat kicking the front seats and messing up the upholstery.

So maybe it's not the mileage, how rough are those miles. And maybe what is the quality of the car. I'm just seeing my friend's 4th gen, 2000 Z28, so 13 yrs old, 160,000 miles maybe, absolutely falling apart, driver seat won't stay up without something wedged behind it, dings and dents, anything plastic on inside is hanging by a thread. He finally broke down and got a Cruze to get him around. But before that I'd laugh when he would Zaino it. At best he was polishing a turd, but it didn't really help.
