The collector car year is just about to start in a big way, with Kissimmee already underway this week and Scottsdale kicking off with Barrett-Jackson on Saturday. We’ll know soon just how much McQueen’s Mustang is worth, and what the trends are for 2020 out of the desert.
But before all that, it’s time to take a second and think about what the new year can bring for you and your cars. What are your new year’s car resolutions for 2020?
I’m making an effort this year to drive my old cars more. I spent most of 2019 building a C10 in my garage, and with that project out of the way, it’s time for me to remind myself why I have old cars in the first place. It’s easy to get caught up in daily life and skip out on the fun car stuff — especially when you have little kids. I’m going to more shows, more cruise-ins, and more drag nights in 2020 — and I’m bringing the kids with me.
Driving my cars more will mean I’ll finally need to fix a couple of the things about them that make them hard to use, but that’s a good thing. Owning something just to store it isn’t much fun. Old cars should earn their keep, and mine are about to.
How about you? What are your plans for 2020? What events will you finally attend, what cars will you finally buy or sell, and what will you be doing to the cars you already own? Sound off in the comments below.
