Default I'm embarrassed

Just gassed up the GT and added Sta Bil for its winter sleep.

I only put 220 miles on it in the last 12 months.

Retired, pandemic & 3 cars factored in, only had one out of town trip for a cruise nite, the Challenger tends to get all the fun trips nowadays.

Common sense would be to sell it but I've had this car for nearly 16 years, far longer than any other vehicle by a long shot, that and how little its worth now it just seems to make sense to keep it as a inexpensive toy.

I agree. The joy you will get out of it now and then is likely worth more than the little bit of money you would get from selling it. I kind of did the same thing when I bought my convertible PT. It's only real purpose is to cruise around with my sweetie on nice days. Plus, I normally install some kind of new shiny doo-dad a couple of times a year so I have something to post about here on this forum.

Sometimes a 3rd vehicle is worth its weight in gold! I ended up pswing mine along to a niece that just graduated high school. Looking back now, I wish I would have kept it for my daughter...fantastic car for a first time driver.

It gets worse, I only put 1427 miles on the Challenger and 6893 on the designated dog hauler Subaru Forester which also gets all the winter miles.

I have put on more miles on my tennis shoes walking the dog than I put on the Cruiser and that was in only 5 months.

I normally drive at least 30K per year but there is nothing normal about 2020.

Just like a Harley. My Spitfire's in the same boat. If only the insurance co charged by the mile.
