    Non daily driver question.

    If your car isn't your daily driver, do you keep it garaged and only bring it out on fine days or do you drive it what ever the weather?

    I'd be very interested in hearing view on this.

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    My car is garaged (with car cover on it) and I only drive it on nice days. It has never seen rain in the time I have owned it.

    Having a different car to DD is the best mod for your car.

    Mine hibernates in the winter as well. I put it on stands across the front of the garage so I can get all 3 cars inside during the cold. I'm waiting on my coil rails to come back from powder coating so I can get the SS running again.

    I am thinking the same thing, it'll last longer (British winters are horrible, cold and damp). It's also more fun driving when it's warm and dry.

    I try to not drive it during the rain but where I live it could be 2 weeks to 3 months for a couple of nice days that doesn't rain.

    Oh. That reminds me of something. I think the original owner of my car lived up north. Because you can't imagine how bad the rust is on the undercarriage of my car. It is terrible!
