Everything get changed once a year. The truck might get 2 oil changes because I put more miles on it.

Why would you change oil, especially oil designed to go 7-10k between changes, (AMSOIL Signature is 25k or 1 year oil) every 6 months? That is completely idiotic and wasteful. Hell, even every 3k miles with the synthetics we have today is stupid. This isn't 1980. I already have vehicles I drive every day, including a Harley. I only drive 2 miles to work, so, NO, I'm not driving my Z to work every night so it can sit there. Why do I have my car? Because I CAN. I can afford it. I can afford it sitting in my garage as well. I enjoy driving it a few times a week.

lol calm down killer

I was simply asking a question in response to the OP which specifically mentioned 6 month recommended OCI. I wasn't even referring to the mileage interval...

And driving it a few times a week does not beg the question why do you have the car
