How often do you look at your Camaro?

As the title says? I find myself looking at my car all the time, I'll find myself just walking over to the window at random times and checking on her to make sure she is alright. Anybody else like this?

I'm looking at it right now... ok technically I'm typing, but I was and will go look again. I actually have to go do a quick once over wash because it rained on me again!

All the time i just go out and the garage and stare at it. driving in the strip malls I check out the reflection in the store window as i drive by. Had a girl stop dating me cause she said i was too much in love with my car and had others say i have a relationship with my car. my theme song is "I'm in love with my car" by Queen.

Yeah for me, it never downpours... just enough dirt rain to piss me off and ruin my perfectly good wash. But I'm known as the new rainmaker. just yesterday (I washed it the day before) it rained ONLY over my neighborhood... one single cloud in the whole sky. Annoying. Always rains within 24 hours.

When I park somewhere I look back at it like 5 times when I am walking away. I love that booty

It is an addiction we all have. My screen saver at home and work is of my Camaro. I have taken over 500 photos of my ride. And YES I too go out into the garage to take another peek at her. If I don't drive it daily I go thru Camaro withdrawls. Being gone for a one week vacation recently was difficult. Fortunately I had my laptop and would look at all my photos.

It would just be easier to count the time I'm not looking at it, honestly.

Whenever I get the chance. At home, I will walk over to the front windows to look down on my Cracker and think to myself "Dammit, you're sexy!".

I also have my work & home computer desktops set to a picture of my Camaro, oh and my iPhone too.

I don't get to see it during the day at work, only because there aren't any windows on the 2nd floor of my building (seriously, who builds a 2-story building and doesn't put windows on the 2nd floor?? Who? Nazis, that's who.) But I catch myself looking back at him at least twice when I start walking away.

I heart Cracker.

Heh.. I actually have started choosing routes that put me up to T intersections where the building across from me has a reflective glass front.. I get to see myself coming, slowing, stopping, stopped and then going again. =)

not much...only when I drive it which is not often and when I open the garage to park my other cars. Don't flame me but it is not much to look at anymore...too many of them around these days. Just another car.

EVERY chance I get . . . I can't get enough of that car and it's been almost a year now since I got it. Never gets old for me.

I'm looking at mine right now (I have it set as my desktop wallpaper), just to keep me getting my fix when I'm not in the garage or driving her

I look at it any chance I get. I have pictures of it on all my computers(my job is in computers) so I always see it.

I only drove my car in the rain once(test ride), but if it sits in my garage for 2 days it gets covered in dust. You just Can't win...

Aww man, you need to sell that thing then or do something to it to make it unique. This is in no way "just another car". I've seen a dozen now on the road and none of them look like mine. Even if they had the same coloring and stripes, they still aren't the same. Like a person, they're all unique even if "built" by the same mother and father.

tried to sell it, wanted to sell it, didn't sell it. I sold 3 of my personal cars in the past 8 months and right now, now only playing with the SS and e36 M3 (I drive everyday, a driver's car, more fun). When I get new car (Z06 or GT500), SS will go.

I look probably too much. I just can't help it. I have her on all my computers and I walk by doors/windows at work just to look at her and make sure shes OK. I think if I could not see/drive this car everyday...I would have to seek Camaro Therapy. And I'm OK with that...
