Certainly agree with that and would do it that way if I had unlimited budget. Cutting connectors out of cars at the JY whenever I'm already there for other stuff just happens to be an extremely cost effective solution.
Aside from your T-5R, you go through them pretty quickly, which compounds the issue greatly. I can't imagine having to get to know a new car every year or two. I can only deal with the number of cars we have because I have good, long term relationships with every car.For me? Four cars and then a couple more that I maintain for family members but then I don't have nearly the mechanical skills that many of you all have. When I was at seven plus the two I maintain it was a little much.
