I love taking it out in the rain actually. The cloudy/rainy weather appeals to me and the black looks like a work of art with the water glistening off it. A good wax keeps her gleaming afterwards.

She gets driven 4 days a week, no matter what the weather. I'm big on waxing and washing, so if she gets dirty, I get her clean in the next day or two. No big deal.

Driving in the rain in these cars is part of the fun. And there's less worry about tire wear just because you're taking every corner sideways.

I cant stand the sound of road debris blasting the sides of it. And having to drive 45 in heavy rain because of the hydroplaning with the wide front tires. I bought a 4x4 quickly after buying my Camaro. There was no way in hell I was going to drive this car in the snow and salt so I was going to buy a 4x4 for winter anyway. But after the 1st drive in the rain I had to get a daily driver right away.

the wider the tires the easier its going to hydroplane. The v6 is probably fine.

I try to aviod driving my Camaro in the rain when I can. Wax/sealant doesn't matter when your car is bright white. Just the crap from kicked up from the brakes is enough to coat the car in grime, nevermind road spray....

I'm fortunate, only been caught in hard rain once...had no choice, had to pick up my son, and the wife wasn't home from work yet. I try and leave it sit if its raining. I have my truck, ane we have the wife's car. Before this winter hits, I'm rerigging the truck to accommodate another car seat.
