Suggestions for outside winter storage?

Hey all, I'm hoping i could get some help. I currently live in a townhome neighborhood and as such my Camaro will be spending most of the winter outside. I live in Southern Maryland, so the winters are generally not too bad, but I was hoping you guys could give me your best suggestions for what I can do to protect my car through the cold months. Thanks a lot in advance.

If you want to store your vehicle for the winter, I would try contacting a classic car club in the area. There's usually members that have an extra spot in their garage, barn or business that they rent out for the winter. In my area you can find a garage for storage for about $300 for the whole winter. I would try that route if you don't plan on driving it until spring.

If you plan on driving it off and on during the winter, just park it and drive it when you want. You may want to put a car cover over it, and maybe a good coat of wax before the snow flies, but I wouldn't treat it any different that any other car. (I have a garage, but mine is a daily driver so I'll be driving all winter) You may want to consider winter tires if driving in the cold weather.
