Unhappy Miss the Camaro

It's been about 2 maybe 3 week since I put my Camaro away for winter storage. I miss driving it already. It's going to be a long winter. I'm stuck with my 02 Siverado for now.

I prefer not to have a rusted up camaro and having to drive 20mph under the speed limit to keep it on the road or digging it out of the driveway or smashing it up. Or people looking at me like That guy can spend $40k on a car but cant afford a winter vehicle. Around here you would get laughed at if you drove a Muscle car in the winter.

Unfortunately our garage hasn't been built yet to get stored away for the winter. However, we did take the Corvette out today since it was nice and the car hasn't been driven in two weeks. Believe it or not, the battery will go dead on the Corvette if not driven in about 3 weeks or you have to keep it tendered. There will be only a couple more times this gets driven this year:

1) to get the nail out of the tire we recently just found (covered under special wheel and tire protection plan
2) to get filled up with gas and oil change done and prep for winter storage
3) to be moved so the garage can be built

Wow I can't imagine what that feels like. In CA we don't really have winters and we think, at least I do, that 50 degrees is cold as hell

just keep the camaro handy for those days when streets are clear and its nice. you dont have to drive it in snow to enjoy it in winter. surely there are days when snow is all gone and its just cold.

Id say hell isn't very cold at all...sorry had to do it

I do have to say my vehicles have never come close to being put away as it's pretty much 90-100 degrees year around here...but yes 50 is COLD

In Texas we don't even need winter tires, much less winter vehicles. If they put salt on a road the city is probably shut down for at least three days anyway so you just stay home. When it's 50 outside I am missing seat warmers.
