Question Poll: Garage or Driveway?

I thought it might be interesting to see where people's new camaro's are living....
Ideally we would all put them in a garage, but personally I don't have a garage on my house, so it's the driveway for my 'bee....

When I had my 'vette, I was NOT popular on the forums when I mentioned that it didnt get garaged or covered daily...

These cars are made to be driven!

I dont have a choice..
I would rather let my wife, 5 year old, and 5 month old be able to get in and out of our Escalade with out getting wet if it is raining.. So my SS will be parked out side.. I work alot of nights anyways so it would be parked outside at work. I have a car cover for it though to help out.

yes, they are made to be driven...but there's no way mine's gonna sit in the driveway. If I didn't have a garage I would at least rent one for the winter.

yeah, mine get's a little dusty...but it's still better than sitting outside. When you get your cover, make sure you give it plenty of time to cool down before you cover it...if it's hot it'll lead to moisture and rust .

Mine is not a daily driver.And I live in rural area. I'll take her out on Cool evenings, Saturday and Sunday drives down a backway 2 lane highway. Love the curves and straight aways following along the river. I Keep my camaro covered 90% of the time in my garage next to my corvette, which is cover 95% of the time. (and I don't drive them in the winter months.) When driving into the city I drive my F-150. To many crazy drivers out there. And I would never consider parking it in a mall parkin lot.

Current inventory:

2010 Camaro SS2 RJT 6sp man. 20" polished rims, Leather Int. Black Strips.
2007 Chyrsler 300 Touring Package, Sun Roof
1999 Ford F-150 (135,000 and counting)
1982 Corvette (71,000 Original miles) "Last of the sharks"

Fly Low and avoid the radar

Speaking of car covers. Did anyone else have to wash theirs. Since my car was the opening day unveiling at the dealers, it came with it but when I took it off about a week later after the rain had stopped here in Utah. So I could take it out it was covered with lint & dust. Cman
