I put mine away when they start pumping out the rock salt.

I don't bring it back out till they stop in the spring and the rain has washed it away.

I tried to drive it last winter but I started to get some rusting. Even my injectors started to rust. :(

I don't put mine away.

I drive it in the winter if the sky is blue and there is no snow, salt or salt dust on the roads.

Winter is a beautiful time to take a drive.:thumbsup:

I hate summer. Winter brings fun. I would like summer here in Colorado If there was a lake any where. Ive gone threw 2 summers with out swimming. It sucks. Dry heat sucks. Winter brings Snow and Snowboarding. The Winter is nice and stress free. And theres Christmas. I mean who doesnt like Christmas. Im glad Summers winding down.:smokin:

Same here Nov 1st was the date that I would put the vettes into storage and not drive them all winter. This year I'll try keeping them out until Dec 1st.

I'll be putting mine in its Carbag within the next two weeks.

My driveway is sloped and it faces North. If there's even the slightest film of ice on it, forget about an easy drive up the driveway and into the garage. I tried that the first year we moved in, and ended up in the snowbank on the side of the driveway. I had snow halfway up the pasenger side door. It took me about 2 hours to dig myself out probably with all the neighbors laughing! My one neighbor across the street was outside so he came over and helped me get it out and gave me a needed push to get into the garage. After all that I said no more. She'll sleep til spring!

I wish I could live in FL!!! You guys who do are lucky!!! :)
