Anyone else ever do this?

I feel lucky enough to say that my '11 2SS/RS is not my DD. I get to play with it when it's pretty out and on the weekends. My DD is my Silverado work truck that is about to roll 200k.
Anyway, to the point, when I am driving around in my DD, I find myself wishing I was in my camaro. That said, every time I see a camaro driving on the road I catch myself riding behind them as long as we are going the same way. I check out the different colors, the body lines, the wheels everything. I love seeing them on the road. Even though there are certain colors I may never own, I admire them. I am glad Chevrolet resurrected the icon. They are just good looking cars.

Jeff Goldblum says "Wellllll...." My intention was to keep driving my 2007 Silverado Classic W/T. Anyone know what all that means, beater. Inefficient V6, no tape deck, I think maybe four speakers for the AM/FM, white.

Anyway, it didn't work out, so the truck sits in the driveway, I fire it up every so often like when I helped a buddy move the other day

My Camaro IS my beater!
My weekend cruiser is my 12 Silverado Crew Cab Z71.
Wife drives a 13 Traverse. Pretty cool rig.
The camaro is my oldest car (that is driven regularly)
It has the most miles and is the funnest of the bunch!
I get to enjoy it year round.

Once my 64 Lincoln is road worthy, it will share the duties with the Camaro...

The C5 Camaro is one of the hottest car out there.
I always admired the early Corvettes until 1972 from there on they went downhill in appearance imho.
No matter if it is a base model or a ZL1 they are all one beautiful car!
Oh, the new Stingray also looks to be one sweet ride.

Looking forward to summer so I can drive my Camaro as much as possible . Come winter and snow it gets covered and put away, then I drive a 77 ford 3/4 ton. Not too bad of a deal because I am very fond of the 1973 -79 Ford trucks, but definitely will miss my Camaro whenever I see any other Camaros on the road.

I think my DD (04 sierra) is jealous of my Camaro. Every time I buy something for the Camaro, something breaks on my DD and needs repair. Smh

My DD is an 06 GMC Sierra Z71. My company pays me $800 a month for it. And that pays for my addiction called Camaro.

My daily driver is an 02 GMC Envoy with over 180k miles. I love this SUV. Never had any issues with it whatsoever. I also ride an 06 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R with over 21k miles. The Camaro is for fun, and no matter what Im driving, I find myself checking out C5's... colors, lines, mods, looks just to see the different personalities of these beautiful machines.

My DD is a '07 MKX. Thought about trading but decided to keep her another year at least. Putting in a nice iPod adapter kit this weekend so I can use the radio & steering wheel controls since I'm keeping her. Also finally updated the nav DVD.

Camaro probably staying in the garage this weekend. Forecast up to 6" of snow tomorrow (low % chance). So much for spring.

I do the exact same thing. Camaro is for nice weather ONLY. I drive my 94 Chevy Suburban every day. 255,xxx miles, and still runnin strong! I also use the truck for band duty, and any other time i need to haul anything, seeing as you can fit just about everything in it! I love my truck, but im always wishing i was in the camaro, especially when i see other camaros on the road! I always try to give any camaro driver a big thumbs up!!
