Forgive me for butting in, but this question sparked my interest.
I would have to say that I prefer driving the cars I work on.
Actually, there are not that many cars that I really like to
drive (in terms of what can be reasonably done without getting
arrested or risking my license) on the street/highway, but when
it comes to track time, I really prefer driving. However, you
have to do about 3 hours prep time per hour track time, and
that's on a car that's in really good condition. The "swork/drive"
ratio is MUCH more favorable for street/highway driving, more like
1:30 instead of 3:1, which means that if I drive a car that I like
to drive on the street (yes, a Midget will do just fine...) then
I get a pretty good deal out of it. And if the same car is also
good on track, so much the better...
