    Mine is sitting in the garage. Had it out Tuesday since it was about 80 degrees.
    Never goes completely down for the winter. We have some really mild winter days, so I take her out to stretch the legs a bit.

    High of 29 and snow today though...

    I figured the winter months would be tough with not driving. We had a real mild fall. Heck it didn't snow until a week ago. I actually drove the car about a week ago. Now with the first dose of sand and salt I don't expect to have it out until spring except to run around the driveway. Light snow expected tonight...... but hey only a few months until spring.

    I live in Chicago and drive my 98 T/A all year around. I couldn't imagine putting it away for the winter. Chicago is pretty dam good about plowing the snow and making the street clear. Although it can be a challege at times to drive in the snow. Aspeacilly with the 315's on the back.

    we only get snow a few times a year here in tennessee so i never have to store mine. just leave it up for a few days at a time here and there. the good thing is i have a carport so mine is only really outside when i am driving it on dry warm days.

    Had mine in storage since October. I miss driving it but it sure does keep the miles down. Only got 15k on the clock. Can't complain about saving on insurance too.

    I understand what you are saying but if you don't drive it you'll never really enjoy owning it. Or at least I wouldn't.

    I do wish I could put it away for the winter though. I hate seeing the sat all over her.

    Ditto. The Idiot Drivers' true colors come out in winter weather. They seem to think that the basic physics (things like friction, momentum, etc.) involved in winter driving only apply to other people, not them.

    Sure, I miss driving mine when I put it away, but I have a better chance of still having it in the spring, barring unforseen circumstances.
