When do you drive yours?

Hi everyone

Been lurking for few weeks... this is my first proper post

Picked up my first scooby - a '54 Blob WRX SL Wagon. Love it, can't believe I waited so long!

Thought was: a few years ago, I used to see scoobies everywhere. Now, the only time I see them is at the weekends; not at all in the week. I know petrol's gone up but it ain't that bad

So, when do you drive yours? Are your scoobies your every day cars? Weekend cars? Track only?

For me: It's my every day car - with a bike for when I want to save fuel

Before I started to rebuild every component of my car it was only a weekend drive

Every day on the drive to work, come sun, rain and snow. It was great in the snow, felt very smug going up hills, passing all the two wheel drive cars who where just sitting there wheel spinning...

I drive mine usually on weekends, but it's on the road whenever it snows

Re: When do you drive yours?

Had my car for 5 years now and drove it to work (20 miles each way) every day until I passed my bike test in January this year. Now I bring my bike to work every day and keep my scooby for the weekends.

Got a company car but it only gets used when visiting customers (not often). Otherwise the Scoob is used every day to get to work. 26 miles round trip come rain, sun and especially snow

If you've got it......... drive it

Every day to work at the moment, so a round trip of about 16 miles.

This is what I am in the process of doing at the moment. Be cheaper to buy a bike and pay for the test than run the scoob every day so no brainer really.

Re: When do you drive yours?

I'm the same as you hjs, i drive mine everyday through the winter and on crap days but when the sun shines the bike comes out. It saves me 25 a week in fuel and only costs 200 a year if it just sits unused!
