What would you do?

Here's the deal:
I have always lived in a rural area until now. I now reside in a city and they shitty roads and crazy angles of hills make it unpractical for my lowered mustang. I don't have my stang here or any car. I was going to go home for the summer, but now I'm not.... I am in law school right now and litterally live downtown. It costs me $120 a month to park my car at my apt and $775 a semester at school, so I don't have a school pass. I keep the car at my parents to avoid the monthly ass raping. I have never tarped a car before. I love my stang and don't really want to get rrid of it. However I jsut don't really want to have my top and paint fade for 2yrs before being able to enjoy it so I thought about storage or a tarp.

Would you guys sell the stang?
Leave it sit outside under a cover?
Store it?

I will be in school for the next two years.... I just put a new motor, top, exhaust, intake, tune, tires, gauges, paint.....
This is my car:

settle for a ride height in between what youve lowered and stock ride height.

compromise b/w style and practicality


keep driving it. i say.

why sell it to someone who is not going to appreciate the new engine you put in.

Keep that thing and get something else with a decent ground clearance for a dd. I drove my mustang to Houston a few times and it would scrub Bad on almost each driveway I went into up in the city but my dd(96 tbird) doesnt have that problem at all. I use to have that problem in my own driveway in the house i use to rent when we first moved here and my car has Frpp c spings so it isnt even slammed. KEEP that thing!!

You are going to be in school for the next two years. Then a job? Where? In the city? If so you will never be able to drive your car.

I haven't lower mine because I already scrape on some the the rougher roads around here. I bought my Mustang to drive it. I have a pickup and I still drive the Mustang everywhere and I let the pickup sit. If it were me I'd take out the lower springs and drive the car. But only you know what is best for you.

Go to walmart and get a $60 cover. Size 3 is the one you'll need. Put the cover on and be done with it. If you're not going to drive it for two years you might want to think about pickling the engine.

+1 on the portable shed or carport, if your really attached to it and just have someone you trust take it out once a month for a 30 min. drive. If your not that attached to your car sell it and put your money towards your future.

Stock ride height and call it a day. Old friend stored a car with a trap. Mice ate the wiring, shit pissed all over. Completely destroyed the car.

I alway regret when someone cannot drive their car, especially when they really want to. But, lowering it so much really limited the possibilities.

Spend 120$ on a car cover and be done with it, you just replaced all those things so why sell the car and take a hit? KEEP IT!

Id sell it, and save the money. Who knows whats going to happen between now and 2 years from now? You might end up doing well and could use that extra money for a down payment on something nice.

Store it, but make sure someone takes it on a good trip every week or every other week.
