Battery question??

I'm fortunate that I live close enough to my work where I can walk in everyday. That means I really only drive my Camaro on the weekends averaging about 50 miles a week. Should I be concerned about the battery not keeping a charge?

I would keep it on a trickle charge through the week.

If your still driving it every weekend then i think you have nothing to worry about. If you are leaving it for weeks or months at a time not starting it or having a battery tender on it then yes you might want to consider putting a battery tender on it.
