Chu's Or Lose - Decisions, Decisions

Here's another reason I think hanging out with Project Car CFO Will "Homer" Law has rubbed off on me. I own six cars right now. Six! That's absurd. I can only drive one at a time, and it's usually my beat up Accord station wagon. The only person with more than me is Siphon Editor Carter. Will made a list of all the cars he's owned in his lifetime, and it was near 40. Granted, I'm not even near that number, and some of the cars I bought just to build up for Project Car magazine (still no website, thanks for asking). I'm not big on change so I keep my cars for a while. Hell, I had my 240SX for 10 years. But I'm running out of parking spaces and I'm sick of buying new batteries after they die from sitting too long. I keep one car at the office, one at Project Car headquarters (a.k.a. DME), two at my parents' house, one in my garage and one on the street. My insurance company hates me and I spend way too much money on car registration.

It's time to deplete my fleet. But where to start? That's like asking a mom to choose which one of her kids she'd get rid of first. I figure the NSX and wagon are definite keepers. Kind of far ends of the spectrum when it comes to cars. One is the super car I've wanted since before I could drive. I barely take it anywhere because it's too low and I'm afraid of stupid drivers and door dings. The other is my daily that gets almost 400 miles per tank and can lug around massive amounts of parts. It's been hit all over, the bumper squeaks, the tint is peeling and bubbling, and my air conditioning was wacky until the Import Car Doctor fixed it. I take it everywhere, but sometimes it's embarrassing to drive around. I guess that means the rest of my cars have to go on the chopping block.
