  •  Medium distance road trips. Or dressed up. (0+ / 0-)

    As me and Mrs. bbb enter our 40's, were going to more events that require decent looking shoes and expensive hairdos. So, to preserve the beauty for the event, I usually get the car.

    I can't think of ever putting more than 10,000 miles on a car in a year. I mostly use the subway. But I do like having a car handy.

    •  Just make sure you have a good garage or parking (1+ / 0-)

      option that is secure.  When I lived in NYC many years ago (80's), I found that paying "rent" for a parking space in a garage was more than I cared to spend, but reluctantly did each and every month as I liked the ability of having a car at my disposal for medium and longer trips (out of state) out of the city.  I later moved out of the city and appreciated that extra $$ each month!  But then again, I also found other situations that demanded that extra $$ as well!!

      I can appreciate the reasons and "whys" of you want, and think it should be a stylish but practical choice, personally speaking.

      Many of us who own and ride motorcycles have a saying that applies to your situation as well:  Drive what you like, and like what you drive.  

      Good luck and enjoy.

      P.S. - My wife and I do miss NYC very much, and need to get up there soon for a "dose."
