I have a friend (who kind of gave me the bug amongst other factors) that only has one car that is an eighties Silver Spirit. Lives in Olympia London. Parks it in the street, doesn't have a garage. He does all his work in the street with ramps etc. The car is a bit beaten up, rusty wheel arches which he's going to patch repair himself. He had made a straight through stainless exhaust which gives it a nice Purr.
The car is not perfect but good mechanics, he's had it for years. The point is that when you add up all the depreciation on my other cars Etc. he's probably quid's in and total motoring per mile is pretty good in the big picture. The trick is to only have one car then you don't have a choice to use the Micra etc.
Or in my case the Hilux flat bed, which I may put on the my garage slot, another great car!!
