Mines had 10k put on it in the last 3 years. Last year, I drove it maybe 800 miles. Its a toy and not practical for day to day.

There was no option for "I have two, and they are my only cars."

Given that I've carried a full size water heater, a lawnmower, an 8' long countertop section and a sofa with mine, I don't foresee encountering anything in the foreseeable future which would require me to buy anything larger. I usually leave the passenger's seat out of the '90, as it's my "work truck".

it's my fun car. I drive it about half the time. in winter, about 1/14th the time. it's reliable enough I can drive it without preparation most of the time -- when I'm not mid-project.

I have a DD truck, and the DD miata. And multiple race cars, so I selected track car only.

Yep. Just take -everything- off the tub, then cut off all the tub parts that the rules allow. Only put back enough drivetrain and suspension parts to make it go, and then everything else is aftermarket parts that are either smaller, lighter, or faster than the original parts.

My car is pretty extreme and over the last couple years I've proven that I could track my turbo car, and daily drive it with a few creature comforts like AC and wheels that won't get stolen.

There wasn't a poll option for "Keep Jackstands From Blowing Away" so I didn't vote.

I have a Cherokee I bought for winter, but I've only had it since November and before that my miata was my only car for 5 years. I put primary car but I have another.

I think the lift was a good investment for a permanent car holder-upper.
