10 trackdays a year and only about 2000 Road miles. So, no.. Not a garage queen.

I kick it's head in.

Driving it. It is a good looking thing but seems a waste to me not using such a capable and fun car

Mine is a garage queen. I’m thinking of selling to getting a 6 that I will use more. As mine will never go out in wet or damp weather

I can vouch for that. Saw Phill batter his Evo on a trackday yesterday...guy can peddle a bit.

Nice speaking to you Phill, car was awesome.

Oh and yes the V is a garage queen but one day I will take her out on track. My skill level will run out way before she gets anywhere near her limits I think.

Why do you think you’d use a 6 more?

Tut tut slagging people off behind ones back is very petty don't you think.

Take mine out when I can outside of winter. It’s a weekend car more than a garage queen. A garage queen to me would be ultra low miles and completely immaculate, which 90% of these cars aren’t.
