Constant Short Journeys


Recommended Posts

My 82 SC Targa has been a dream since I bought it nearly a year ago. It's my one, and only car. My only worry is that a lot of time, given I live close to most of things I drive to, most of my journeys are 10 mins or less. I want to stretch out the engine, but my oil hasn't even heated up by the time I get to my destination. I do get it out for longer runs every few weekends, where I will stretch the engine when the oil heats up to running temp. 


Is it something I should be worried about having the car at low revs and cold for most of its running life? It's done 106k miles, and has had a top-end rebuild.
