Same here, both on exercising the VR6 and on still having the original
clutch. The first couple of years I had it I'd barnstorm through the Blue
Ridge mountains in NC on an almost monthly basis. Now however, I find my
reflexes, timing, and attentiveness, along with the car's performance,
have deteriorated to the point where I'm not capable of doing that
quickly or safely anymore, so no longer.
Like John says, the maintenance costs are quite high, so I try to keep it
out of the shop as much as possible. If I took it in now, I'd be facing a
whopping bill to correct everything that needs to be worked on. It was
bad enough that it cost me $155 to replace the driver's side sun visor,
so I don't need to have them dig around to find much more expensive
things that need repair/replacement!! So I nurse it along as best I can
for as long as I can.
*sigh* I'd love to see 100K on mine again....
