Boy !! That is a tough one !!!!
I'd love to have a sunroof !! On one hand, if you had a true prestine collectors piece, I could see just storing it.

On the other hand, you could be sitting on your front porch when your 90 yrs old bragging about your 60 TBird that you never took out and enjoyed.

My dad did the opposite with our Bird. He bought it new and kept it in the garage. He drove an old beater Chrysler to work. One day it hit him, why should I work so hard and have to drive this piece of sh__ every day.
He drove the TBird every day from then on. Put the top down every day when it was nice. He enjoyed it. He always kept it in nice condition. I've done allot to it. People can't believe it has almost 300K miles on it. It's no prestine showroom car, but it's a good road car. I don't commute in it, but I try to take it out once a week & blow the cobwebs out.

Tough call . . . But I say enjoy em !!!
