By the way, I used to have a car like this but I got sick of staring at it in the garage and worrying about it when I did take it out.
If I owned a nice driver (like I do now) I'd drive it and not worry too much about it. My definition of a nice driver is a medium to high milage car (50,000 miles and up) that is mechanically sound and has maybe been repainted, or not. With that kind of milage it might have a minor accident in it's past. If the car has this kind of milage, it's no longer a collector's car anyway.
Bottom line is the more you drive your car, the more risk you expose it to. If you are the kind of person that wants to preserve a car in it's original state, you can't afford to use it much at all. If it's a driver, get it fixed and don't let it raise your blood pressure. If it was a collector's car, fix it, sell it and look for another virgin to own.
