    You shouldnt be thinking about winter right now. You should be thinking about enjoying the summer night air and having sex on trampolines

    Well yea, trampolines rust in winter and snow can ruin the material so this is the season to get some good use out of them.

    ^^ Plus a Battery Tender, a good pre-storage washing and waxing, and the fuel tank mostly full to prevent any condensation issues (more important on cars with metal tanks -- a rarity anymore).

    His car would have a plastic fuel tank.

    Last year F-body with a metal tank was the 98. It's smaller too...

    Stabil for long term storage.

    Depends on how extreme you really want to get with this.

    I've seen people go as far as putting vasoline on all the rubber so it won't dry out and crack over time. I've also seen someone put coal under their car because coal absorbs all the moisture and keeps the underside from getting rusty.

    At minimal I would put some stable in it and keep the battery charged like said. Flat spots on tires isn't really all that common nowadays from what I was told at a few tire places. Also, I think it's a good idea to start the car and let it run about 20 or so minutes about once every 2 weeks. That's what I do at least and I've never had an issue. Mine gets stored from about Oct. to April.

    A local tire shop owner recommended spraying the tires with cooking spray once a month.

    I use no additives.
    Completely full gas tank. Start it (and drive it if possible) once every two weeks.
    I try to plan it so it has fairly new oil in it when it gets parked....like maybe 1000 miles since changed.
