Made me so sad lol but eh whatever, live moves on. It's not that big so you can't notice it and since it's a daily driver, I didn't expect it to stay in 100% perfect shape forever. I'm thinking about getting all the little things fixed by a buddy soon though

Yeah college has not been nice to my car. My new school is much better, the spots are bigger. My only complaint is the parking sticker is very cheap vinyl and is going to require goo gone to get off my back window. But at USF I had a scrape after my only 50 minute class of the day! And another time someone had put broken glass on my car. I parked on the roof of the garage on an August afternoon in a corner. I spent like half hour grabbing individual glass shards, needless to say I was livid.

We were going to a Camaro meet in Orlando so he decided to just stay and read a book in the car while I was in class )
Most of the time, I don't have much of a choice where I park. Unless it's a smaller clinic or hospital with a bigger employee lot.

Lol, ya'll should go to Camaro meets daily!

I don't expect mine to stay in perfect shape, but it still hurts to see damage to your car, no matter how small.

I agree, but I still try to minimize any damage.

Oh and I was. Even thinking about it now I start getting mad, freaking 90 degrees out, no wind, no shade picking every last bit of glass..... I was about ready to kill someone. At the end of the day though, we still got our camaros and someone else is just mad.

When I bought my rs headlights, they came with new turn signal bulbs. So since I had an extra set, I decided to just try it. I saw a member do it himself and figured that if it didn't work or not enough light shined through, I'd look into the chrome bulbs. But it worked out so they are still in there

Dang....thats extremely low.

Now I make a point to do my best to ONLY drive my car when the roads are dry and there is no rain in the forecast...so I call it my sunny day driver. It doesn't even come out EVERY sunny day either. If the whole week was sunny, I'd guess I had it out 3 - 4 days of that week.

Had my 2010 since August of 09 and I have around 12,000 miles on it. I did take more random cruises and backroards the first year or two than I do now though.
