I wonder how many of you park your cars for the winter?

Parked mine till next May on Monday. Washed it, gassed it up and used fuel stablizer. Won't start it till I take it out next May.

I drove by the M-DOT salt shed this am and I saw them loading trucks already and we just got snow flurries in the air with temps around 32°. Got my '92 Chevy plow truck ready to go. Looking forward to Lake Superior dumping over 200 inches on snow this winter.:bouncy:


PS-How can I get rid of all this stupid links on every catch word.

Click on the "What's this?" on the pop-up.
Scroll down to the bottom of the IntelliTXT pop-up and click on the " click here to disable".

That oughta do it. :thumbsup:

I'm not going to winterize mine, just take it out on the dry, sunny days. Already got the PennDOT salt working on my '92 K1500. Almost wish someone would slide into the area where the body cancer is so I could have it cut out and replaced. Keep your 'lake effect' snow in MI. I can do without it.

One of the benefits of living on the Gulf Coast is that some people don't have to winter park our cars. The downside is that we are scared to park beneath anything treelike during hurricane season, so there is a trade off. Ha-ha.

You are smart to spare your CTS the exposure to salt and icy roads, it is a teasure to be hoarded for the warmer months. Enjoy!

Daily Driver

*crosses fingers*

Not too many hills around here, my mustang sucked in the snow, but it didn't have any traction control systems

I'm hoping because this car is heavier has trac control and the tires are brand new it will handle the snow with (in best cartman voice) authoritahhhh

Bastard. I used to live in Flordia when I was younger, I hated the heat, I like winter in New England, but the snow, does it have to be so cruel? I would love to live someplace where I could have florida's roads but new england's weather, but I suppose that with the weather comes the potholes...and the road construction, and the salt, ugh.

I take that back, I wish I lived someplace with perfect roads and sunny skies :-D

That's why they put that 'snowflake' button on your console. When you live in the sunbelt and you want a white Christmas . . . just push the button. Great feature. :lildevil:

Mines a daily driver and still has the original tires with just under 28K on them. Looks like the previous owner made a lot of right turns, the outer edges of both left tires are worn pretty thin the the rights look really good except for a little wear on the inside edge.

Mine's a daily driver. I bought it so I could store my Vette for the winter. Just put Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S tires on.

I'm ready to put the winter tires on over Thanksgiving, but I'm also considering parking it this winter to gain some space back. We only have a two car garage with 4, and possibly 5 cars. With winter snow, parked cars mean more obstacles for me to plow around.
