    I agree, a car that sits is a car that will waste away and cost a fortune in maintenance down the road.

    If it's a good car and you want to keep it (and there's a lot of value and peace of mind knowing the history of the car), you can just drive it once or twice a week. Take it out for 30-40 minutes minimum - long enough to get everything nice and warmed up, fluids flowing, bushings working, etc.

    Change the engine oil once a year, and other fluids (brakes, transmission, differential, coolant) every other year.
