I bet I have put under 300 miles per year in the last 5 years.

I got that way with my motorcycle about 3 years ago, it just sat all the time. I have been riding street bikes for almost 25 years but it was time to go so I sold it, I miss riding but its easier just to jump in the car.

I drive mine about 1500-2000 miles a year. That's spring thru fall good weather driving. I should get out tomorrow morning for a 50-75 mile cruise.

I drive mine all the time an average of 50-60 miles a day. I drive it hard too. It will be in the garage for a while now. I got a really loud knocking almost a hammer slamming into the block so I have to pull it and tear it apart.

I drive mine occasionally, in between projects. I enjoy working on it!!!

My wife and I both work from home so none of our vehicles get driven much anymore...

Meh... It's a lot of effort tto get it out, get it right, take it out, take it home, wet clean and polish before putting it up.... this is why I liked my unrestored 72. Twice the attention, all of the fun, and none of the paranoia and OCD....

Mine is retired. It worked hard for years, and now is enjoying retirement. I bought my 70 new and drove it every day as my daily driver. After 18 years as my daily driver, I bought a different car to take over the DD work, and my Camaro went into retirement so it could be restored and kept.
