I can't stay away from the fun.
This, except I'm putting miles on FAST.

I took delivery of my 2013 at the end of January with 11 miles on the odometer. I'm over 6,000 right now.

My 2010 RS will be 4 in September and currently have a little over 5400 on the clock. Some times I wish I drove it more and sometimes I'm glad it's safe in the garage

I drive mine when ever I want but park it during the winter. I've had it since september of 2009 and I only have about 13,500 miles on it. So I'm averaging about 4,000 miles a year give or take. So I don't think your that bad. I'd say I'm on the really low end but there are a lot of us that don't want to expose our cars to the salt they use on the roads here.

Hell Joe's had his car for a few months longer than I have and I don't think he's hit 900 miles yet!

Bought my '13 SS new in December 2012. Had 220 on it because they had to bring it from an Atlanta dealership. I just turned over 3K miles (that's about 600 miles a month average) but I doubt I can maintain an average that low. So, yes... your 2011 has pretty low miles on it. You're averaging about 500/month.

Well I feel better about my miles now. I don't really go too far out of my way not to drive it. It's mostly a weekend car and no salt car. So otherwise it is out and about. Thanks again for the input.

Again who knows what tomorrow will bring, you could end up losing your job, contracting a terminal illness, or have an accident where you will never be able to drive your Camaro again. You better enjoy it while you can. You can always buy another car or have yours restored. Don't waste a day, life's too short to save your car for the next owner.
well said ^^^^^^^^

picked up the Z in aug 2013 with 3 miles on it
8500 miles later and not my daily driver
picked up the ss/1le in dec 2013 with 12 miles almost 5000 miles as of today

Just wondering how many of you who say you bought it to drive and have a lot of miles only have 1 car. Everybodys circumstances are different. If you think low mileage doesn't add valve , your wrong. Someone hit my wifes 2003 Avalanche and totaled it. It had 41000 miles on it, insurance co. added $4975 for low mileage. I'm planning on keeping mine, so I'm not saving it for someone else, I'm saving it for me.
