Talking Daily Driver/Off-Road Only/Garage Queen?

Which of the following classifies your Defender?

Daily Driver
Off-Road Only
Garage Queen

I'll go first...mine is pampered...no offroading (I know I'll get sh!t for it ), just camping...not driven daily, only about 50~100 miles a week, never driven in salt...

Cheers...

The LE is my DD right now. Until all the work is done on the yellow ST, it's a Garage Queen...a very dusty one.

Don't want to skew the results, but ...

Disco = D.D. / O.R.
D90 = G.Q.
109 = bits & pieces

D110 Part Time Driver garaged at home and work.

D90 the other Part Time also garaged at home and work.

I have to switch between the two. I think it best not to let them sit to long.

20 off road trails per year

+ 30 trips to ski areas

+ 30 trips to bagel shop

+ 5 camping trips

= 2500 miles per year

How do you keep the seals from drying-up?

D-90: Daily driver - about 12K per year

109SW - broken transmission - hasn't moved in years (hope to fix it next spring)

88 PU - in many pieces in the garage and basement - reassembly should start this winter and hope its ready by MAR 2008.
