Hey, I resemble that remark. Really all mine run though.
Unless you are planning to do some spirited driving or going on a poker run or something it's highly impractical to drive some exotic car all the time. You got running cost, male curiosity, loud exhaust etc to deal with.
I normally drive my accord. Only once has some guy came up to me to talk about accords. Asked me how I liked it. Told him it's a ugly piece of shit but it gets me where I need to go and doesn't break down. He didn't like my answer, seems he had the same car.
I'm in the middle of hunting down an early 80s jaguar XJ6. Gonna try and use that as my daily driver and see how it goes. At least use it for nice weather. Then back to the accord for winter.
