    haha, ya, but still, the cars can tow small trailors, they have a towing capacity of 1,000 punds. But I hear that you shouldn't tow with a Camaro unless you have an auto. My family owns 2 2500HD Silverados and a Suburban, so my car will never see a trailor hitch. BUT, if I had a small boat or trailor and no other choice, I'd do it.

    both my ss's arent daily drivers. The 99 has 19K, and the 02 has 6K. I wanna keep both with low mileage, clean, and stock for hopefully a big future investment.

    I bought my 99 new and only has 36k on it. with all the snow in minn. it was only meant for summer time fun. But i intend to keep it. now it just sits in the garage and the only time it gets driven is when new parts are bein put on and fun runs after.

    haha, when I first got my car I wasn't used to having alot of power (my first car was a VW Vanagon), and one of the first times I drove it in the rain I almost spun out. I was leaving my neighborhood and getting on a main street, and I had to gas it to get into traffic. There is a big dip on the intersection that always fills with water, and well, i turned left, gave it some gas, and my rear end went wild. scared the shit out of me! tottally almost lost control right next to a row of trees.

    you gotta admit, it is a very redneck thing to do. but what else can you say? except GET R DONE!

    1998 Formula

    I got my Formula with 46k miles about a year ago, just turned 53k as of yesterday. It is my daily driver since im still in high school and I only drive to school and work. However, I am starting college in the fall and it is about a 40 min drive from home, so I am planning to keep The Formula in the garage and get a V6 Fbody for 2k or less as a beater. I said to myself to get a civic but I just cant see myself driving one .

    I got it in may 2005 with 26k mile it was a GM buy back under the lemon law, the report said the piston rings kept beaking, so I got it with a freah rebuilt engine. It was a DD for 3 months until I started needing my truck for work daily. Now it's a weekend racer w/36k miles and I still have one year and 20k miles left on a GM warrenty.

    I work 30 hours a week, dont have to pay anything but 200$ for the car and gas, my parents pay the insurance. The car is under their name so its only 100$ a month. The fbody beater i plan to get will be under my name and that will come out to 130$ per month with a PIP insurance.
