Yeah, Ive had mine put up for a few weeks now. Got it Labor Day weekend, has 320 miles on it. Im wondering if I should yank the battery or just leave it in the car with the battery minder on it. What's the consiquences if the computer isn't powered for 6 months?

I will most likely drive it once more this weekend and then she will be stored away with my 1970 Z-28 for the winter. I only got to drive it just over 600 miles this year.

Buying a new truck so when I get that I will store mine away as well.
Hopefully within the next week.

I probably won't be driving mine to much more with winter on the way, but I know I will be driving it this weekend, I'll take it down to Oakland Beach and take more pictures, but mine will not see the road anymore once the first sand or salt is put down, damn RI weather, lol, but I am looking forward to next spring when I put headers, exhaust & CAI on.

Put mine away 11/17/09 2SS/RS I put fuel stablizer for ethanol in the tank and filled it up and parked on carpet squares and inflated the tires to 40 lbs. I also take some oilly rags and put them in the exhaust, besides waxing and car cover this works for me. It is in the garage next to a 78 LT Camaro which I have had since new and have done the same with that for 31 years and it seems to work. Anybody have any ideas let me know
