This, all of it. It bothers me too. I don't own any garage queens (or $1M cars, for that matter), I drive all mine. Maybe some more than others, but you get what I'm saying. Most owners of rare cars only think of them as investments, because let's face it, the people buying them are
wealthy investors. However, my stance is, and always will be, that the true beauty of them is in driving, not letting them rot in a garage. People gripe about Chris Evans driving his $16M Ferrari Cali SWB around the neighborhood on the weekends, risking it being damaged, but I say gods bless him for it. He's much more of a collector and enthusiast than the cowards in the hobby.
Although I won't be getting a GTS Daytona, I will have a GTB (and F40), and you can bet it'll be driven regularly.
