Daily driver to WeekEnder

So since January I don't need the Boxster as my daily anymore. For 1-1/2 years previous, it was my daily

So if I don't sell it (I'm going round and round about that)

Is there anything different as far as storing that I should think about??
It goes in the garage
I usually wash and dry it before putting it away if it was a dirty drive
I cover it
I check air, oil, water before any start ups or drives
I read it bed time stories each night

Fortunately most of my weekend drives are to visit kids at school and that's a 2 hour drive each way so the best kind of workout

If you can afford it, have the space and enjoy it keep it. I will likily be in the same place in a few weeks and I can't imagine life without a Porsche. I went for a few years without and regreted it almost every day.

You might also want to take it for a spin after wasking to get the mositure out of the brakes. Washing and parking without getting heat into the brakes to help with evaporation is hard on the brakes.

I use a leaf blower to get rid of water after I wash the car
seems to work well to get rid of the water in the brakes and wheels as well as the nooks and crannies on the car

Keep it if you can ! The segments of my life without a Porsche or something close were dreary.
