About the only place I won't drive it is Wally World or corn fields. Other than that it's "Drive it like you stole it"

They were made to be driven...if we're going somewhere where I KNOW the roads are terrible we'll take the Van (Z51 suspension) if not we're in the Vette.

34K miles on my 96 red car. I put 24k of that on it since I bought it on Dec 26, 1997.

I put 6K miles on the GS in 20 months of ownership.

The C5 is her daily driver.

Just got the 84 back from the shop. Drove it in the snow.:( Main roads mostly clear. 84 not show quality, so I drive it whenever.

I don't care about the miles but I don't drive it much. It's a toy and I don't get the chance much.:(

Drive it as much as I can in the spring/summer/fall months. I got the old Dodge for winter duty and trips on gravel roads.

I don't drive it too work, but I also don't worry about the mileage. I drive it as often as I can. :)

I'm surprised by the results of this poll. I would have thought more people cared about mileage. Interesting.
Yes, at first I was watching every mile, but after I started modding the car I decided that it was mine forever!! So I will ENJOY.:cheers:

I don't worry about mileage all that much. I drive it when the weather is nice. Which here in PA hasn't been to many days this year. I guess I just get lazy. I'll spend all weekend detailing it and I don't want to take it out whent the weather is bad or after they've dumped tons of salt on the roads come winter.
