    Coming from somewhere where the coldest it gets is about 55Farenheight, I gotta ask-

  15. Not so much the snow, it's all the salt they spread that eats the cars up.

    Been wanting to do this for years! Figured I better do it now since it was running during the winter and before any body work was done!

    Might be a little too much snow to make it "picturesque" but this is our winter last year. And the picture with multiple cars in it..... There's far more there than is visible.

    Not hard these days, in the days of 6V electrics it could be hard, especially when the car and battery got old.

    My father used to live in Kapuskasing Ontario, where it gets as cold as -60F in winter. All the car manufacturers go there for their cold weather testing.

    He was an electrician and worked at the Kimberly Clark paper mill. He had an old Dodge flathead six. To get it to start in winter he had it tuned to the teeth, used the thinnest oil, had an electric block heater plugged in all night and on especially cold nights, brought the battery in the house and put it behind the kitchen wood stove to keep warm. He kept a second battery as well, in extreme cases he would connect them in series for 12 volts. His car always stared even though Dodges were considered unreliable starters in bad weather. Then he would go around and boost the neighbors Fords and Chevs lol.

    Other tricks included taking a shovel full of coals from the stove and putting them in a pan under the engine to warm it up. Or hang a light bulb next to the carburetor to help the gas vaporize.

    In those days Fords were considered the best starters in real cold weather because they had the hottest ignition system. The Dodge straight six spark plugs were directly below the seam in the hood and water could drip down and short out the ignition, if you did not have the stock Everdry plug boots. This gave them a reputation for being hard to start in cold or damp weather but if you kept everything stock there was no problem.

    They used to spread salt on the roads in winter to melt the ice. This cause so much corrosion a car could rust through in 2 or 3 years. There wasn't much you could do to stop it other than wax the car real good and spray it with oil underneath.

    If a car was in storage, the cold was much kinder to it than heat. A car properly stored in a garage, with antifreeze or the cooling system drained, would suffer less damage over a winter than a car sitting in the sun in Australia would in a month.
