    I owned a '74, '79, '86, and a '91 Firebird which I drove year round because I could always get another one, now that I have the last production year of the Firebird (2002 Firebird Formula) I only drive it during the summer. Because of the salt and other stuff they put on the road during the winter.

    I would never drive my SS in the rain, let alone the snow lol.

    BTW - the jack has been under the frame of the car holding it up since July. Do you think that's a problem keeping it like that?

    I don't think having jack stands under the frame of a car but I would put the jack stands under the axles if I was going to leave it that way for months.

    I have an actual jack under the car, no jack stands.

    I would use jack stands instead of just a regular jack, mostly because it will be safer.

    I understand, I had jack stands under it also when I was working on it. I think I'll just go ahead and lower the car onto its wheels anyhow as I likely won't be working on it until spring when it warms up. No heat in the garage.

    I don't like the ideal of the tires hanging from the shocks so thats why I rarely have the car on stands for any long time.

    Hey Jon. Long time no talk to. Mine was on my jack stands for a year and a half while I did my build. I never noticed anything after that.

    Having the car raised up in the air on jack stands wont hurt anything. I would definitely NOT leave a regular hydraulic jack under for any length of time. You are solely relining on the seals of the jack to keep the car up in the air. The jack isn't really designed to keep the car in the air, its just made to get it in the air where the trusty jack stand will take over afterwards. When I blew up my tranny, my car was in the air on jack stands for about 8 months. No issues with the suspension once I got it back on the ground and driving again though.

    My car has been slightly snowed on 1 time in my ownership. I recently backed it in my garage on a cold night to put it out of my working way and it touched some snow, but other than that not driven under bad conditions. Been rained on 3 or 4 times, and been left out overnight 3 times ( all in 2yrs time ). I do try to keep it contained well. My 4wd F-150 I also don't intend to use for winter as I don't want salt eating its frame either like my last truck. That, and I like the truck a lot .

    As it sits now on the battery tender.


    With the other toys. I love having the fourwheeler to clear the snow out with.


    The night I moved it on my own I successfully managed to scar it. Still pissed off.


    I daily drive a slightly modded '05 Cobalt SS. Fun, fast, good looking daily. Very willing to sacrifice it to winter conditions and never intend to have it forever. Let it rust . I just spent $800 ( 225/40-18 ) to get Nokian snow tires put on it and glad I did. Summer tires were worn out and it slid everywhere. Now it is planted. Hopefully next spring i'll get a fancy set of wheels with some good summer rubbers on.

Whenever you are ready, Darren.
    I've really slacked. I guess I got used to last year not having snow or salt until January . One of these days if no more salt gets laid out i'll try to maneuver it over. If not i'll rent a trailer and bring it by as a last resort.

    Took the WS6, and my daughter, to pick my bud up for lunch, who works at the last dealership I worked at before going back to college, and a better career. He last saw it when it was bone stock, after lunch, he told me how "bad assed" the car sounded now!

    I actually went out to the garage the other day to do something and went over to look at her crippled self. To my surprise, I had already removed the jack from under the car and it is sitting on jack stands on each side. Certainly don't recall that. Now I know for sure I am not going to remember how to hook the supercharger back up LOL

    I just realized I can get my seatback upper covers on without taking off headrest, BUT..... HOW do we remove head rests on top of front seats??? I didn't want break them and I didn't see any hole to insert a pin or awl? Do they just pull up and out with force; or is there a lever/button in hedrest or on female hole area? No longer urgent, but now curious. I saw on some old other blogs that whole seat back must be dismantled? :-)

    Yeah the back of the seat has to be removed. There's a set of clips inside the seat holding the headrest in.

    On the Snow topic only time my Bird seen snow was in fall of 2015 when we were preparing for a track day at the Beaver, was driving it to a friends to load it in a enclosed trailer had the drag radials on and it was coming down...hahaha.... Then the next day just after running my fastest ever pass I was lined up in the staging lanes and it left loose again......Jeff , My friends and myself were rushing to get them loaded as the giant snow flakes covered everything very quickly but didn't last long.....
