Hubby says no but no good reason why. says gas...I drive a big durango with my three year old most of the time - talk about waste of gas. yeah maybe parts are hard to find - is this true of US classics? Maybe weather issues but its going to be painted properly and I have a garage. Is it really a bad idea or does hubby not like the idea of wifey having a bad ass car while he drives the daddy mobile - Nissan Maxima. Any thoughts - realistic - about why not? Please help because I am starting my cherry mobile fund
If you care for the car and want it to stay nice, you will have to park it in the winter - as I do. The old metal on these cars are not galvanized, and will rust from the salt. I park mine the first time I see a salt truck and wait for a couple of good rains in the spring to get the salt off the roads. BTW, my truck sits outside, the old car sits inside. If you get a popular auto, you will be always be able to get parts. Chevy, Pontiac, Ford come to mind, but there are others as well.
