Anyone else crying cuz there Camaro is in storage???
Stored my camaro a few weeks ago, just as the snow started! Missing it soo much!! counting the days! wondering if anyone else is feelin my pain! Born in Fl so just dieing at the thought that the south gets to roll there toys alllll year
yeah, winter sucks. The roads here are already caked w/ salt & sand. If we get some rain to clean off the roads a bit, I'll go for a quick spin...if not, I'd rather not subject my car to that kind of torture.

I had orginnally planned on pickin up some winter tires and rims from tirerack.com but at the last second I chickened out! I realized that I have'nt even gone on one road trip since I got it before the snow hit. So I figured that I better just store it so I get a fresh ride next summer. Would be such a bummer if i slide into a curb etc before I got one nice ride!
If you have the option to drive something else during the winter, then why not? It's nice to drive your car all the time, but it's not enjoyable to clean all the mess off of it or deal with any damage that is more likely to occur.
Yes, It hurts to see it covered in my garage. But I have to protect it from the salt. Rain and snow won't hurt it. But, that salt will just eat it away. Heres a little tid bit. Here in Michigan we sit on top of a massive salt field.
So, salt is real cheap to mine. They pour it all over every road! Now, salt does not work in the extreme cold. That because salt is actually activated by heat. Here is the real problem. Driving when the salt has been laid down. The warmer road surface activate the salt. Turns the snow to slush. You drive over it and splash it around the underside and surface of your vehicle. If you park your car outside where it is cold the salt will revert back to minerial . Some damage (minimal) will occur to metal surfaces. (sheetmetal will always revert back to iron ore. that is the rust) Now, if you park it in a warmed garage. The warmer temps along with the moisture in the air. Will activate the salt continously and expedite the process... And most attached garages are consideraly warmer than the outside temp. So alway consider this before this before driving your car thru the salt covered roads and park it in your warm garage. Always store your vehicle after you have washed and completely dried it. (give it a few hours for the water to evaporate). Also, never cover your car after the engine has been running and is warm. Let it cool down first.
