Mine is more of a weekend driver, but really only because I have a company vehicle that I drive everyday and the climate of where I live. I've pwne her since the begining of November of last year and have put 1700 milers on her.

After work and weekend driver only!
I do not drive it in the rain and keep it in the garage as much as possible.
Car is almost 3 years old and still looks like new with just a little over 11K miles.
I drive my truck to work to job-sites which includes a lot of dirt roads and mud.
I keep all my stuff in like new condition and know that the next owner will love this car as much as I do!

I use my Camaro as my daily driver. I have way too much fun driving it to let it sit in a garage

Living in upstate NY and the goofy weather we get, I have no choice but to drive mine only in nice weather and nice weather only, no snow or rain period. I like it that way as does my car. When I am out, I drive it like I am on the most wanted list and have fun.

Armoredslayer +1..I'm in the same situation and drive mine the exact same way as you.. I avoid even rain as well but if I get caught in it I don't sweat it...

SanJosebmx why in the world would you only drive yours on Sunday.. I never understood why people in areas with beautiful whether year round don't drive it as much as possible... what a waste, it actually driver me nuts cause I wish I could drive mine more.. hate upstate ny whether!! But stuck here for now....

Definitely my DD. I've had mine a year and it has 12K. A Camaro is made to be driven, not sit in the garage.

it's not a waste.. I get to drive it when I want to, I've got 3 other (more practical) vehicles to get me around..

this car is our dream car...

we want to keep it nice not have it get banged up in my work parking garage by knuckleheads who don't care.

I used to use it on the weekends only. Now i ride it most days. Only reason is to keep it as safe as possible until a douchebag truck driver smashed my side mirror. After that i was like what the heck ill use it more often. Great topic btw
