I'm with you...I did 40,000 miles in two years in a Toyota MR2 with no A/C in South Florida because the repair was more than the car was worth.

I did a few years on my DC2 GS-R with no syncros and no AC in Florida. The compressor died so I removed everything. Hahaha. The silly things I would do when I was younger.

I need the AC about 20 days a year and if it is broke I will get it fixed at any cost!

I need AC in NC probably 75% of the year. But I just sweat instead, or drive the Cayman.

If I ever allocated enough money to fix the AC...I'd probably turbo the car instead

Last year no AC in Vette, had it in the 86.


This year fixed Vette AC, did AC delete in 86 for weight reduction


I tell myself I am training my body to survive an apocalypse

The 86 doesn't have a similar cubby so it looks like I'll be shopping for a phone mount.

I'm just using that as an extreme example of something that I might "complain" about but obviously isn't a dealbreaker when it comes to buying an entire car. Just like engine power.

The ones I like clip to you AC vent and have a magnetic mount, my phone case has a magnet built in so it makes it really fast to mount/dismount.
