    Hey wagoners, in dry weather I sometimes drive the Chevy to work (the colonnade-style door frames are not ideal for keeping out rain after 46 years). It’s a short commute but as we all know, cars need regular use, especially our old wagons. Unfortunately it has rained a lot this summer in NJ so I haven’t driven the wagon as much as I’d like. I do start and run it weekly, regardless. And I’m planning one of these Thursday evenings this month to bring it to the Circuit in Asbury Park.

    Fantastic. I approve this message.
    I try to drive my wagon to work every Friday during the nice weather months. I find it helps me when I have a specific day in mind.

    Thanks OrthmannJ! I think you get more use out of your wagon, which is great. In an unusual turn of events, I was able to drive the Chevy to work 3 days in a row this week.

    You're welcome.
    I drive mine pretty regularly, but not as much as I should. I love to see people enjoying their classics that way they were intended to be enjoyed.
