unfortunately, this story has too much truth to it. As we know many "car show" people that get this way. Still funny, but sad it has a lot of truth to it.


I was smart when i bought my car, I checked the box for windshield wipers... I am all set!


I did not check the box for Turn Signals. I heard that wears your battery out faster.

Meh, you guys are fooling yourselves. I’ve owned 5 Camaros and a T/A, this is the first one I didn’t have to use as a DD. It’s so much nicer having a perfect-weather-only car… the miles stay low, it’s always clean, I don’t have to worry about weather related accidents (proven fact; the chances of a crash increase 30% even in light rain), and driving a ~600 rwhp car in the rain SUCKS. Oh and as a person who has a history of easily getting bored with his cars, I love getting back into the Camaro after a few days of driving my truck. Absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. I plan on keeping this car forever so the longer I can make it last, the better.

I will admit though, there is one con to not driving it every day and that is when the weather has cleared up and I’m in my truck watching all you jerks fly past me in your DD Camaros making me jealous. Lol

MF probably runs his car with less than 3/4 of a tank of gas. Trade it in before you ruin your investment.

I commit blasphemy all the time. I have Blizzaks for the winter, and love to drive my Camaro in the snow...\



I'll be driving out to Milwaukee from Seattle at the end of the month, mostly close to the Canadian border. For me, cars are meant to be driven. I'll be getting up above 65000 miles on my 2016.

Glad you all enjoyed the laugh. Nothing against those who love to maintain their ride (some to excess). I own a garage queen as well. BUT, I am not afraid of a little weather. Not afraid of the car wash. I may wax it twice a year. In other words, I keep it clean, but I drive it.....that's what I paid for.
