All day every day. Mine handled like a champ in the snow with pirelli scorpions, but I will save my car and find something else for the next winter.

Used to daily it. I bought a Scion after I put around 20k on the Camaro. It rides better and gets way better milage. The suspension + exhaust on the Camaro can get tiring sometimes.

Ok, I'm in Alabama, so I almost don't count, but I drive mine every day and enjoy it. I'd say enjoy yours every day that you can.

Not my DD

I take mine on "research expeditions" on sunny days and back country roads when most folks are working or sleeping. Decided this would be my part time job after retirement. Love the car and not much chance I'll get tired of it this way.

With the stock LS 245/55/R18 tires, the car performs alot better in imperfect conditions than I thought. Coming from a 02 Firebird v6, I thought the Camaro would be alot worse with traction due to the huge power difference. Not true (with traction control on anyway)

Can you drive it in the winter? Sure. Should you? That's the real question. P-zeros are ok in the cold if you're careful. If there is any snow on the ground at all, I would not even attempt it. Also, the car is just too low to the ground to be great in the snow. To top it all off, why screw up a nice car with snow, salt and all the other wonderful things winter has to offer? Winter is really hard on vehicles. I plan on keeping mine for a long time, and would rather not have it turn into a rust bucket. Oh yeah, and then there's all the other morons on the road that can't drive in the snow. You gotta worry about them crashing into you.

In short, when I had my V6, I DD it one winter. That was enough headaches for me. I bought a used Jeep and that thing is a trooper in the snow. IMO, a Camaro just isn't a winter car, especially an SS or ZL1.
