666 that's awesome. Well you guys got to enjoy yours today. Mine will be in route tomorrow at 8am for some Fall/early winter mods. Figure do them before winter starts this year, so I don't have to leave my car at the shop after winter. I will keep everyone posted on the results

I took Rumble Bee to work yesterday then took the wife out to dinner and checked out the new bass pro shop in utica. It was a great final cruise of the season, put about 100 miles on and left some ZL1 calling card on a few roads and parking lots....

couple of questions for you guys since the Trans Am never really got put away for winter (we had the warmest winter that year). My Camaro has 669 miles on it, do you guys think I should change out the oil on it or should it be ok till spring? Also wanting to know what battery tender you guys use and do you disconnect the batter from the car or does that not need to be done for the battery tender?

Another question about exhaust, there are a lot of nice systems out there and you tube vides never do them justice...I am thinking I want to go with the Stainless Works retro chambered cat back. Any thoughts? I know the MRT V2 sounds nice but they are pricey for an axle back when can get cat back for not that much more. HELP!

I haven't put a tender on any of my camaros yet. Also with the few miles that you have there is no need to change oil till the spring.

The current spec looks a little low to do much more than maintain, but as long as it has an automatic float mode it should be ok.

Full charger output is only 0.75 amps. It will just take longer if for some reason the battery was to lose charge, but what the hell, we have all winter, lol. As long as you're only maintaining a charge it will be fine. The one I have is 3.0 amps so can be used to charge a deeply discharged battery, if you don't have a regular charger. Like if your mower is dead come spring.

i have a regular charger for a dead battery so then this should be fine for maintaining the Camaro battery. Thanks for the info!

The 2 winters I have had my car, I haven't done anything as far as the battery goes and knock on wood, fires right up come spring.

As far as the charger you are looking at, sounds like it is a good choice.

Anyone think I need to change the oil with only 669 miles on the car before letting it sit all winter?

I usually change my oil after winter and plan on doing that again come spring. I store my car at my dad's which is about 3 and a half hours away and after taking it out of storage and driving back I haven't had any issues with the oil on the trip before being able to change it when I get back.

I wouldn't worry about the oil only having 669 miles on it.

I agree, it isn't like the old days when there might be a bunch of metal shavings you want to get out, and the oil is still new.

Thanks Joe, same to you and all our Vets!!! Tom, I wouldn't worry about the oil, hell, I start mine up occasionally over the winter, just run it till it's up to full temp, haven't had any problems yet, I changed my oil around 1500 miles, good use for the freebie they give you!
