Camaro .... a weekend car?

Ok so I was thinking............ how many of us would consider our camaro a weekend ride ? I personally use it as my daily driver and use my Ducati 1198 as my weekend ride ..........am I alone or do most of us use our camaro as daily drivers , and if you use yours for weekend driving ...why ?

DD. 26 round trip + whatever I drive after I get home. Love every minute of it! Can't afford another car, at least not this nice, for a weekend cruiser!

I love looking outside my office window most every day and seeing my Red Hot Rod...
I'm only 8 miles from home, but it's a helluva nice ride to and from work now.

It's more of a "whenever I feel like driving it" car. We drive it in spurts. It might sit for a week, then a trip uptown for no apparent reason. Then, it might sit two days. It all depends.

Mines a DD. I don't have a weekend car but I don't want to drive my truck as a DD for mileage/convenience/parking reasons

I have no reason to use mine as a daily driver. I have a company vehicle. If I had to use it as a daily driver, I wouldn't own it.

Daily driver. 4 months owned & 7,500+ miles. I feel sad for Garage queens. These cars beg to be driven. My daily commute went from a drag to a love. Best part of my day now! Way too much fun to ever give it up.

My baby is 1 year young as of 9/5, 8100 miles; not a DD...I drive her about once a week, and on weekends. She doesn't sit in a garage. I use my motorcycle as my daily rider (DR). Why? Just because! It's faster and more fun!
