Default Getting all too much

Iíve barely posted of late and donít visit the forum very much now. I seem to have lost the love for it and for our cars now.....is this the beginning of the end? I have too many cars and itís stressing me out in terms of managing them and paying for them. I donít enjoy looking at them, I donít enjoy being on the forum, I donít even enjoy driving them at the moment. Life seems so busy at the moment that our cars for me now have gone down on my list of priorities. And, I donít know what to do. Feel like chucking it all in now and just having one car I can drive about in for work and leisure and not have all this worry. Sick of it.

Pick out the best one, sell the rest and enjoy owning and maintaining just your favourite.

Cool

Then thatís the solution then Rav, sell the fleet and just keep the one. Get back into the groove gradually. Your health is far more important than the cars.

It's not a good time of year to enjoy your car. They get caked in NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD-NAUGHTY WORD- off the roads, any leaks become apparent, they take longer to warm up, locks and door seals freeze, you constantly run out of screenwash and the slippery, pot-holed roads are even more joyless as normal. Summer again soon.

Owning a 75 is a labour of love and when circumstances draw your attention elsewhere, the charm of the cars can be easily forgotten as the niggles take over.

I'd also suggest thinning the fleet - maybe keep a good one for weekends and a less good one, or something else, for daily duties. Clear the fleet completely at your peril as you may feel bereft if you make yourself 75-less.

I donít even feel like keeping any of my Rovers. But, at the same time Iím finding it hard to let them go.ll

My fleet as it stands:

Rover 75 saloon diesel (former daily, off road but on road soon)
MG ZT-T 180 - trying to get shot of this one as I hate the V6 auto.
Rover 75 diesel typhoon (off road)
Rover 220 coupe turbo (off road but love this car)
Rover 620Ti (immaculate and not owned for long)

I canít choose one...

Well you can start with the 180 as it seems it is your less favourite

For me the enjoyment is driving. Having a car sat on the drive which I cannot use would bring me down.
I make a point of using both the ZT and TF at the weekend
