Drive your Camaro!

I hope you guys actually drive your camaro's. Nothing more annoying than seeing 20,000+ cars sold (GT500) and never seein them on the streets (i've seen 2). Or like some of the weenie 03-04 Cobra guys who grarage their cars and only drive < 3,000 miles a year, never enjoying their cars. Why even own it at that point? Except for some very few exceptions, they are just depreciating assets.

don't be weenie's, DRIVE YOUR CARS!

I am hoping to keep it to 2-3k miles a year, this is a car i plan on never selling. I will be buying a used 4th gen this summer for the burning of tires and whatnot. Plus i have a Grand prix GTP and a truck so I don't put many miles on any of my cars ( i only live 4 miles from work)

Yeah, I gotta agree big time, just don't see the point. I drive my C5 Z06 everyday, enjoy it to the fullest, it's great! So many of the Corvette crowd are "waxers" just drive it 10 miles on the weekend or whatever, and complain about the smallest of cosmetic blemishes and whatnot. GM went through the painstaking process of testing the Camaro, and Corvette in all kinds of endurance tests, speed tests etc - it's meant to be driven and driven like you mean it. Then again, if I could afford to do it a la J. Leno, I'd have a special storage garage, and archive all my favs for posterity. But back in the real world I'll just DRIVE...

I will treat it like my motorcycle and take it out for long drives on Sunny days. Everyday driving just increases the chances of me getting:
-a speeding ticket
-an ahole driver wrecking into it

Amen to that. My Z 06 now has 90k miles on it. They are to be driven. They will get scars...thats life..but they will be fun. I just saw a 04 Z 06 for sale with 1200 miles on it..guy was trading to a C6 Z 06...why so it can sit in the garage too?

Drive em!

My 2SS'll be a daily driver, though I would like to keep the mileage low. Ideally I'd like to keep this car "forever", so we'll see what happens.

My plan is to have another car as daily driver, and just drive Camaro on nice evenings/weekends, from late April (by then rains/street sweepers have gotten rid of lingering road salt/sand) to late Oct. I want to hang onto this car for many years.

The winter weather/road salt is so hard on cars here, it almost seems criminal to drive the new Camaro through Minnesota winters.

Will drive mine in good weather March-November, then it will get put away for the winter. Camaros don't like the snow.

I have 20K on mine, so all the GT500 owners do keep them as garage queens.
