Done for the season

Car is away for the season. I have all winter to decide what I'm going to do to it in the spring.

Sorry about the hibernation, that would be tough.

Just put mine in storage today as well. I leave my insurance in force all year round just in case each month when we have our Detroit5thGen Camaro club meeting the weather is nice enough to pull it out for the day.

All covered up with tender hooked up.

Sad time in Michigan for sure, as many of the Camaro's are going to sleep. Mine head that way in two more weeks.

As for what to due over the winter, OH, I am sure you will come up with a few good ones. Starting with a visit to Livernois?

Not sure. It doesn't need much. I'm thinking a small bump and drag radials.

I don't know how you guys back east do it, With the cooler air this time of year, it brings out more of the higher HP cars and the meets are later in the afternoon, which is perfect cause I like to sleep in.

Just when I start to get bored with it, it's time to put it away. Then in the spring it's like getting a new car every year.

Lucky enough to live in the one part of Canada that will rarely see any real Winter. Just purchased another set of rims to change out the wheels and tires for the season. But, man do these cars like a cool crisp morning to make some HP if it could only hook up.

Was in the low 70s this past weekend.....Was able to put about 220m on this Sunday. (These cars handle great, especially once the tires are a bit warmer to match the roads)
