Last drive of the season

Beautiful fall day in Nova Scotia. I decided to take the Vette out. While visiting my parents I looked outside to see the first snow fall of the season. The snow melted as soon as it hit the ground so no issues driving. I guess this maybe the last drive of the season.

Nothing a couple of nails in your tires couldn't fix.

The worst day of the year is the last day for vette driving season. Being from New England I feel your pain. As for you Floridans I have the nail gun for Junkmans nails.

So sad. I run mine through the winter. Last winter was very uneventful for SE PA. The worst winter might bring 3-4 weeks of battery tender time. Just have to be careful driving when the road surface is around 15-25F.
