Cars are meant to be driven, not to sit in a garage gathering dust. But the fact of the matter is that many of us have a strong attachment to cars that aren’t always practical to drive every day. Maybe it was our first car, or the car that we spent months and years dreaming about when we were teenagers. Maybe it was a ’92 Mazda RX-7 that we bought with money from our first job, or that beautiful Chevy Corvette ZR-1 that we were finally able to afford after we got that promotion. Whatever it is, we can’t always bear to put our favorite car out to pasture, even when the logistics of families and commutes require us to upgrade to an SUV or something that gets better gas mileage.
Our cars have long been a part of the American identity, and for many of us our ride says something about who we are. So even if we drive something economical or passenger-friendly every day during the week, we may still want to get our old ride out of storage on the weekend to go for an extended cruise and relive the memories of our glory days, or drive it to our 20th high school reunion and show everyone that we’ve still got it. We may even want to pass it down to one of our kids when they reach driving age.
You might not want to part with a treasured car just because you’ve picked up something new, but there isn’t always space to keep it in the garage or parked in the driveway. Luckily, you have a lot of options when it comes to auto storage in Oklahoma. Self-storage facilities that offer vehicle storage can help keep your favorite car safe and sound—and out of the way—until you’re ready to get it back on the road.
Just because you don’t drive it very often these days doesn’t mean that old car doesn’t still need some TLC, though. You’ll want to start it up and keep it maintained, even come take it out for a spin every so often, in order to ensure that it stays in great shape.
