Yea it's good when you can still hook, but I think it's a much better feeling not driving it for 5 months and forgetting how fast it is

Lucky. Was -20 here this morning.

I'm aiming for late March or early April. We have about a month worth of snow melt around here and I don't like driving it on wet roads.

Probably take it to the detailer first thing though, try get some of those rock chips on the hood covered up, and a complete clay bar treatment to get rid of swirl marks. From there, it's time to put new wheels on.

So much fun stuff to look forward to this spring!!!

as long as streets are clean of salt I take mine out in the winter. I have a set of Pirelli snow sport tires which are awesome even in deep snow when I have driven it in the snow. I also wash it every time it gets above freezing.

I do miss the freight train pull but I am sure I don't miss the rusted bolts and brake lines, oxidation on the aluminum engine parts and the dreaded cancer holes in the future.
I find other things to make me happy in the winter, four wheel drives, snowmobiling and a nice warm fire.
