Mine is a daily driver, only way I could afford it. Only put 27000 in three years on it, but had several issues with the car in that time. Still love it tho! It won't get rid of me that easy!

Drive mine(LS3) everyday back and forth to the ATL (67 one -way). I didn't buy it to collect dust and it gets the same gas mileage as my Chrysler 300 Touring did. Leave it at home when freezing or snow and take a beater on those days. I don't think you will ever meet anyone who wished they drove their Camaro less.

Up in New England the new calcium/salt/methelethylbadshit they put on the rds in the winter time destroys the bottoms of cars. That being said if there is no rain in the forecast my car is the DD. If theres a chance of rain I will take the truck, mostly because my car is black and hard enough to keep clean as it is. Also wouldn't subject my car to this...

The Camaro makes my commute, lunch break and any other reason to get out of the office enjoyable.

There's nothing about the car that makes it unsuitable for daily use

This is my 2012 1SS LS3:

I drive mine every day. Recommend you run an all season or winter tire. Your PZeros will not cut it in NJ. I run these.

Daily Driver! I drive mine in the winter of Chicago too! I definitely do not look like the guy that posted the facebook video - that was funny though.

I am getting myself some snow tires this winter just so I don't have to pray so much on each turn.

The only thing is camaro in snow storm is just a poor time because no mater what you do you are spinning wheels somewhere.

That's an average of 26 miles a month, what's the point in having it?

I driving mine for work about 3 days a week and for pleasure on the weekends. I have a 2003 avalanche for bad weather.
