Several threads on this forum have addressed the issue of driving the car hard and routinely to keep it in its best running condition.
After some reflection (with motorcycles) I think I might have to concur. However, I don't have much bases for this . . . only that most times I encountered a problem with a bike it was after I had let it sit.
Anybody got any real data on this as it seems to counter the resale value . . . even unscientific stuff, like drive hard for x amount of miles a many days a week. ????

I could care less about "resale value". I'm more concerned with "maximum joy extraction". I am strongly in the "drive it like it was meant to be driven" camp.

I am a convert!

I used to have all these nice high end cars with LOOOOWWWWW miles; like I bought them, many new and put them in a shrine; then one day my buddy said, "what r u saving them for, they ALL DEPRECIATE, drive it like you stole it"....and so I am now driving them more and harder; I feel with proper maintenance like oil changes ,etc it should give me many miles of enjoyment...I will be posting as I just bought ALL the toys from Jeff...:)
