    Mine is used as a daily driver, I only do around 8000 miles per year but have a detailer wash it weekly to keep the salt off and car looking spic & span, this way the car doesn't need storage treatment and I get to enjoy it regularly. This still costs a lot less than hiring a barn for storage or trying to run a vintage super car for a few months a year...

    They're also quite fragile, drivers side is easier to feel than passenger side so got for that one first.

    I lied about only coveting one V8 sound, a guy up the road has a BMW E92 I think it is, 58 plate, M3 with an an AC Schnitzer exhaust system on it and that howls!

    Sadly a second car isn't an option, you can pick up something cheap enough but with only one garage and double yellow lines outside I have nowhere to put it. I do however keep the worst of the crud off by having a little twist'n'go scooter I keep in my back garden and use for the daily hack to work and back. I have just enough room in the garage for my proper bike and the car to keep them clean.
