 1950  At least monthly, if only for a few miles.Try more often

 

  Oil at 3000 mi or yearly. Have not changed gear oils or brake fluid since finishing car in 2010.  Driven just over 7000 miles.

 

 As often as I can. Only reason I don't more is access logistics.

 

  Very seldom. Every one welcome

 

  Couple times a year at least. They do not phase me. 

 

  Started frequently. Back it out of garage so I can get into garage

 

  Two or three times a year.

 

   WASH YOUR MOUTH OUT WITH SOAP!!!  NEVER.

   1- I have three, a '41 McLaughlin Buick, same as a 76S, a '56 76R, and my newest, a just purchased '69 Electra Limited, and drive one, or more 2- 3 times per week in the good weather

 

   2- Engine oil twice a year, trans and others once every few years

 

   3- It varies quite a bit, but usually I do a pleasure drive in one of them at least once a week.

 

   4- Once or twice a week.

 

   5- Once a week, more or less.

 

   6- Hard to say, but several times a week I just have to move them around to get another out, but they aren't driven otherwise.

 

   7- 3-4 times a year

 

   8- Never have considered selling any of my cars. I do this for love, not money!

~1939 Buick Special Sport Coupe, driven on average once every week or 2 when there is no road salt.

 

2 --   How often do you change the oil and other fluids?

~Engine oil yearly. Trans, diff, coolant every 3 years.

 

3 --   How often do you drive to places other than car shows or car events?

~Never to shows or events, usually local back roads or stops at stores to pick things up.

 

3 --  How often is it driven with at least one passenger?

~Almost always. I was the passenger a couple times this summer with my teenage daughter driving. She did very well but still quite frightening for me.

 

4 --  How often is it driven on a freeway or super hi ways? 

~Rarely, usually only for a higher speed test run after working on it.
