Is it time to un-winterize and go for a ride?

Many days of warm sunny weather ahead. Who's going to unhook that battery tender and go for a ride?

Never put mine sway for the Winter. The roads here are snow and water free 50% of the
time all Winter. These SS Camaros run so strong in the cold weather.

I sneak it out any time the roads are not salty or wet in the winter. I only semi winterize it in case of snowmageddon like last year. Always put fuel stabilizer in the tank, and battery tender on if it sits for 2 weeks straight, change the oil in early December, nothing to crazy.

as of this moment 100,402mi. on the odometer a good chunk of that is winter driving and yes your paint job will look like shit after 3 years of salt and whatever else they mix with it on the winter roads. Having a black car doesn't make it any better. These cars actually run better in the snow and frigid temps then in the summer or spring even under the mild 70 degree days.

Planning on taking the Camaro out today for a little ride and photo shoot. Probably won't "officially" put her in hibernation till the first snow or ice hits.

Yea way to early to have the car away.

Once the snow falls then put it away. Or if the temps are below freezing for what looks to be the foreseeable future and washing it is out of the question. Then it goes away.

Beautiful day today in Ct that I took mine out for a drive and went to the local car wash and just hosed her off. As well as tomorrow and the rest of the week is looking good in the high 40's to close to 50's so definitely not time to put away...

Took mine for a long ride today to meet friends I grew up with. Totally enjoyed the ride. Not nearly time to put it away yet.

So true, I'm still taking my weekly trips to the Beach. Man this thing has power
in the cold weather with the Airaid intake.
