    I daily drove my 71 since 2006. I've done lots to that car and learned a lot of lessons about having your project as a daily.

    Since I just bought a 2014 Mustang GT, I let my dad drive/store the car for now.

    I drive mine once in a blue moon. It has a bunch of issues that make it not at all fun to drive.

    Life often times gets in the way of life.

    The car developed a misfire late last year, I did a little investigating last year, but this year, time has been hard to come by.
    Also winter/salt season lasts for like 7 months, that kinda puts a damper on having driving it.

    i get it. there's an issue and it seems you never have time or motivation to do it. i'm there but i'm getting to it slowly.
    but some of these guys have fully operable cars that just do not see the road. that's the issue...

    Been driving it almost every day since I bought it in 04 I think it was? Other than the days I repainted or swapped the engine.
