Yes, I am right behind you. Got a late start this year, but she gets put away this weekend.

I have put away the Z for its long winter hibernation. Time to wax up the ski’s, looks like winter will be here within 24 hours.

I put her away a week or so ago. Battery tender, inflated the tires up to 41 PSI, put steel wool in the exhaust pipes, filled the tank up with Shell 91 and fuel stabilizer and that's about it. Wondering if I should put a sock with rice in it to avoid moisture, but then again the garage isn't heated, and I never did it in the previous years. So I guess it's fine.

Look at it this way, the months you don't drive it, when you do pull the car out it feels like it's your first time driving it, the feeling never dies.

Here too.

10" of snow in the east end of London last night. Our fun cars were parked last weekend, and won't see the road again until May. :-(

Ahhh good ol London. I remember all the HOCOs, and St Patty's Day parties at Western Uni. Good lord. . . But besides that I can't believe you got that much snow already, nuts. Stay safe.

Ya, we have 2 seasons here in the CLE as well...1) Winter and 2) Crappy Roads!!!

Finally put her away on Saturday. It's going to be a long Winter. It's already started with record low temps today, and up to 18" of snow just to the East of us in the primary snow belt.

A car is meant to be driven. At most if there happens to be 3 weeks of snow, that's the most it sits. I won't drive it when snowing, but do drive thru winter. May be worst in other areas, and we do have two foot snow storms, but it gets driven.

I agree with that, but mine requires too many compromises to be driven in winter and I don't think I would be enjoying it: much simpler just to park it. I can still get some kicks with my Q50S if I want a little rush
