I couldn't not drive a car that much.. they're built to be driven, and I don't see the point in parking it in the garage all the time. Plus, there'* something impressive about a daily driver that looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor

When I lived at home, my car was garaged every night unless I spent the night elsewhere. One of the nice things about my dad'* need for a garage that could hold a lot. Now, the lumina sits outside up here, the the white bonneville has taken it'* place in the garage (cause it leaks still)

My car in the rain looks 10x as awesome because you can't see the peeling clearcoat or the other visible paint problems when it'* dry.

The best raining is when you've just waxed, and you got perfect lines of water angling down the exact way down for that area. Really shows off the curves.

Heavy hard rains are best, because after all the water washes the car it sheets off the gold class.... Free wash (save the wheels.)
