Yeah it sucks. I just stored mine away in the garage not too long ago. Damn winter!

It would be one thing if I had an actual, functional garage. My garage barely fits the goat and that is it. If I had a larger 2 car that was heated, I wouldnt mind as much. Atleast that way I could go tinker with the car during the winter months if I wanted to.

Yeah only thing sux for me is no power/heat in unit. Can't plug in my battery tender so I'll have to remove the battery. Make sure tank is full with Stabil.

Raxus GTO, you a member of the BuckeyeGoats?

Yeah, i made sure to add stabil and i slightly over-inflate the tires to prevent flat spotting. It worked great last year. I also have one of the battery tenders which is nice to have.

I am on buckeye goats too, same name that I have on here. Were you at the dyno days back in may?

Always sad to see that first snow in Ohio and know the GTO will be going away for a few months, but over the winter I forget what its like driving the GTO so its like getting a new car all over again every spring!

My Buddy in crime at work..."He heads up Sales" Has had a SHO for the last three years. It handled better in the snow then the four wheel drive Nissan Murano he had before that. He liked it so much that he turned it in for a new SHO this year. He puts a good 50,000 miles a year an one.

The little ol' Monaro seeing some snow is nothing compared to the abuse it gets in the summer. I didn't spend hundreds of dollars a month paying her off to let her sit.
