Low mileage is great for resale value.. and true, you dont get rock chips if your not driving it. I'm just a little confused as to why you would buy a beautiful, beast of a car like this and not drive it. Last night while going to get my taxes done, the parking lot my tax center is located in, they were having a little car club meet. Mostly older gentleman, and most all their cars were of the older sort. Some late 70's Corvettes, some rat rods, a few old coupes, even saw a really nice '69 Camaro. The funny thing was, they all stopped talking, and turned their heads to watch me drive by.. I didnt have time to stop and chat, and they were gone by the time i was done, but thats not the point. This car is a piece of fear inspiring artwork. Drive It!! Lol.

~ Or.. maybe that's just me.

Wow, I thought I had low miles (4400 in 12 months)... I have a very short commute (~8 miles/day) and I have 3 vehicles, so I don't put too many miles on any of them.

And yeah low mileage cars are easier to sell, but the affect on book value is not that much. A 5 year old car with low miles is still a 5 year old car. Low miles will add $500 and REALLY low miles will add maybe $1000 to book value.

Drive home from dealership - 200 miles.
Drive for next 9 days - 469 miles.

Total - 669 miles as it sits today.

Is it a queen - HELL NO !!! But will literally be "finished" in a few weeks and then watch the miles stack up !

very true but the same goes the other way.
you may only get an extra 500-1000, but if you drive it alot you get a reduced value on your car and that can go any where from -500 to -1000.
I sell a few used cars.

If the owner of the gorgeous Lamborghini Gallardo can drive their car to Lowe's in Oklahoma City or the owner of the Ferrari California can drive their car to Lowe's in Enid, OK...strange to see two exotics at two Lowe's in differing towns...there is absolutely no reason not to drive these cars. The only ones I can see a reasoning behind not driving would be a fairly rare FACTORY special edition or low production.

I don't fault aftermarket special editions, but they realistically are a crap shoot when it comes to future value. Some do really well...others do really poorly. Sure, my Mecham is worth more than a standard 1982 Firebird, but is it making me rich with only 38K on the odometer? Nope.

No Garage Queen here.. If I wanted a Camaro to sit and look at, I'd have bought a model.

12/22/2010, 461 miles in just over 2 months.

It's not intended to be a queen. I've been traveling a lot for work and do have a 3rd vehicle, so for now, it just kind of sits. When better weather comes (i.e. they're not laying down sand) then it will come out to play.

I thought this thread was going to be about girlfriends/wives and them being Queen "B's".


Some of you should really just drive your cars already. All your doing is paying athe depreation for it's future owner. It's very doubtful these cars are going to go up in value in the next 50 years if at all.
