I'm not doing it for resale or any other investment purposes. I have another car I daily drive and I only drive my CTR for pleasure. I don't drive it to the mall or supermarket, etc. It only comes out when I want to go for a drive. Like another poster said, I get enjoyment out of owning it. It's something I've wanted for 20 odd years. It's just a bonus that I get to drive it as well as just having it look good in my garage! lol I haven't driven it for 2 weeks, now, and I'm OK with that. Some people choose to daily their CTR, I do not. There is no right or wrong.
I’m with you. This has been the car I’ve wanted for 20+ years and I’m in no hurry to put miles on it. There’s no way I would park this car in the parking garage I use for work, so I don’t drive it to work. I work a lot so I don’t drive it as much as I would like. I bought the end of June 2017 and only have 3348 miles. I’ve driven it enough to bend a rim and blow a tire though. Screwed up the lip spoiler a bit, but it’s mine and I love it!

I purchased it Labor Day 2017 with 12 miles on it. 4 Dragon trips and 2 trips to the BMT in Arkansas. Numerous cruises to the Cars & Coffee along the Gulf Coast. Now seating at 42K and enjoying the hell out of the CTR. Still enjoy the S2K more but its a close second.

135 mi drive home from dealership
648 mi on it as of today (59 mi/mo avg)

It's a 3rd car and I work from home. Typically only drive about 6k mi/yr because I'm pedaling my bicycle so much. I pedal 1200+ mi/mo.

June of 2018. 7k miles currently. Not a DD and has NEVER gotten wet (I hope it never does!) Only been washed once. Otherwise just a California Duster and Crystal Mist QD spray keeps that beautiful Souveran wax looking wet and deep. I treat her like a garage queen WHEN it's in the garage. But outside the garage I do my best to keep the turbo on boil at all times.....
