Confession time. I feel like I can do this here. I don't drive my CC from December to March. Well, for those of you that don't know, it snowed +8 inches of snow here (Chicago) last 24hrs. Well, last night, I woke up in the early am hrs, went out to the garage, pulled out a lawn chair, uncovered the car and sat in the garage (took some pics) with Mazzi for an hour while it was snowing. Spouse says the car is like bad porn and for my sake, she hopes Spring arrived early this year. P.S. I left the cover on Mazzi's step-sister Zessi aka Z06 . . . sorry Vette people.

I don't put the top down December through March, but do slog the poor thing through the rain. We're almost in the same boat.

Justice, I'm with you my friend. North of Detroit here I get whatever mother nature doesn't dump on you plus whatever she picks up coming over Lake Michigan.

Bought my '04 Spyder 3 weeks ago and only driven it twice, but sat in it about 5 times in a cold garage checking out to see what the different buttons do.

"It's frickin freezing in here, Mr. Bigglesworth."

sorry guys....been mostly a mild winter here in virginia but, there are still stretches of a couple of weeks where it's too wet or raining. I only get to drive her on weekends. Missed last week but, the weather guys are calling for 55F and sunny on Super Bowl Sunday! It's gonna be a tough choice! Not really. :D

I make a habit of at least starting the car up and letting it warm up every 3 days when I can't drive it, but with this winter, I've been able to get the Maserati out 2-3 days a week for a couple hours.

I strongly believe that leaving a car sit is one of the worst things you can do to it...just instinctively (no science), it would seem that moving parts like to move, seals like to seal, and lubes like to lube.

I could never see owning a garage queen of any kind, though I do understand that those of you in "weather impaired" locations have no choice sometimes.

That said, why not call Tire Rack and get a set of 18" wheels + Blizzaks and let the grins begin again? ;-)
