    I guess my back yard would be big enough for a few tents, that or people could crash in the basement but my experience sleeping out in the open with others has resulted in no sleep due to chain snoring and what not. My driveway could certainly accommodate a few cars. Our gathering would definitely not be as eventful as Scottfest as well, short of Junkyard Diving there's no dyno or anything else. Although, it's the time of year where cruising Gratiot or Woodward is a thing so imagine two lanes of woodward jammed up with panthers.

    When you get both going again what is your plan for the both of them?

    Ooooh lol, yeah. I'll join. I feel bad about DD'ing the Town Car. It really isn't a DD any more. If it was in the condition the mark VII or our trucks are in, then yeah, it would be getting driven every day. Makes me sad. I really didn't want another garage queen yet this I like this one a lot and don't really want to sell it. Not sure what I should do with the damn thing.
    Unfortunately the most likely future will be to drive them both until they belong in the JY. I've never sold or got rid of a car. The only cars of "mine" that are gone I never owned. For that reason my answer to what you want to do with your TC would be to keep it forever.

    If I had a pole barn, done, totally. I wish I had one. Town Car would go in there on jack stands and in one of those vacuum sealed bags once waxed, sealed and stuff. Would be nice since it would free up both garage spots for Ashley and I to put our DD's there.

    Which one would you make the "winter" car? Or would you keep one on stand-by for when the other has a sick day? That's the purpose the trucks serve. Although the F-250 will be going up for sale soon as we can't afford insurance on all of these things and while the F-250 runs better than the K1500, the K1500 makes more sense to keep as it's got 4x4 and the A/C can be made to work again, unlike the Ford. Or does it?

    The Ice Car is already the winter car. I have not driven The Scab during the winter but if I have to it's not in good enough shape for me to feel bad about it.
