Who is sick of winter???

ME!! I picked up my 14 ZL1 on 1/17 in PA and besides the 140 mile ride home, it's been sitting in my garage. Yesterday we were hit with 2 feet of snow!! I worked from home the last 2 days and that can get expensive. Being I can't drive my new toy, I can at least buy mods for it over the internet right hahaha! I ordered some books, a Cold Air Inductions air box, a ported throttle body from Bo White, a case for my owners manual because Chevrolet thinks it's ok to sell a 62k car with a zip lock bag. I'M sure there are a few things I forgot.
I mean there is only so much wax one can put on a car right?

I was sick of it before it even started, and where I am it just rains the whole time! . . . the Goodyears definitely aren't a fan of 45 degrees and raining went it comes to putting the power down - plus rain is miserable.

Yeah it's 24 degrees here. Goodyears?? Sure they will work lolol.
I went on ebay and bought a 2002 Chevy Malibu owners manual with the case. All the owners manuals are the same size so I will toss the one they send and use the case for mine. $5.00 shipped!! I also bought from GEN5DIY the drl wiring harness and plasma bulbs for the drl's and fog lights. Winter is expensive

Surprisingly I've taken my car out every day this week! We were up to 75 yesterday!!! It's not normal but I'll take it!!! I think it might be back to the cold soon though.

I am so envious of you guys in warmer climates! I live in SC for a while and loved it. Coldest it got there was 40. No snow. Now, in MD...the cold sucks, and mine is covered, hooked to a tender and hibernating. Makes the summer months that much more special though.

My car has been hibernating since November. I detail my car(s) and take good pictures of them during the summer, so that I can look at them in winter when I can't drive them.

Moved out almost 2 years ago, screw snow and that crap. Going to be another gorgeous 75F day today. I'll take 2 months of hot over 6 months of snow/crap. Even when it is hot I can drive my cars no issue.

Only about 2 and a half more months to go. On one hand I hate to mow and that's an hour on a rider every 4-5 days, but I can drink. I also hate to snow-blow. That's 20-30 minutes maybe 2-3 times/month. In some ways both winter and summer suck
