Weekend car by virtue of my career - not generally home during the week. Wish I could drive it every day

not a dd here. used to be, but its 62 miles round trip to work and back. i have since modded mine cosmetically and performance-wise.

i also enjoy taking mine to the track 3-4 times a year. kinda like another, i drive mine during the week after work (sometimes) and definitely on the weekends.

already have 16,000 miles on her and have had her now for 13 months. just couldnt see putting 16,000 miles a year on her just to work and back - wanted to keep her for my pleasure driving and track days.

already posted pics of her on here many times, but why not another - here she is...

NOT my daily driver, but I drive it when the sun is shining and the traffic is not awful. I got a manual knowing that I would not have to drive it in Atlanta traffic, but just when I want to pop open the sunroof, put down the windows, turn the music up and enjoy it. I want to keep my car around a long time, and really enjoy it.

Mine's a daily driver in between winters. It's garaged while the roads are being sprayed with chemicals during the winter months.

I wish my SS could be a weekend car, but the reality is that I just don't have space for another car/daily driver.

I've got a Duc 749s that only sees sunny days, and doesn't get used for commuting, but I like the Camaro a LOT more. Motorcycling is more about the hobby for me. A nice bike is secondary, although nothing beats the sound of a twin with a Termi

Mine was a DD for about two months while my Silverado sat on a For Sale lot in October and November. Since then Camaro went back in the garage and took her out for the first time since this past weekend. I got her in June and she has about 3500 miles on her, back to driving the Silverado every day! I hate putting miles on the Camaro!

Weekend car here, but by no means a garage queen. Took it on the PowerTour this past June. I dd'd it the first year I owned it and I can't imagine going back to dding it again. It's so much easier to keep nice when you don't HAVE to drive it. Plus a lot more fun when you do! A second car was the best mod I've made.

A spring/summer/fall weekend car, and a fun hobby with the kids - washing the car, cruising to the ice cream place, car shows, etc.
