    I'm in western massachusetts. I haven't driven my roadster since november but if it didn't have an oil leak that i've been using christmas as an excuse to not fix, I could drive it tomorrow.

    back a couple years ago I had a year where january was the only month I didn't actually get to drive it. that was a good year!

    I drove mine (roadster) up until the middle of December when I decided it was time to tear it apart. I still kinda regret it haha.

  9. In Connecticut we got 18 inches of snow at the end of October and then the temperatures went into the 40's and 50's........snow melted and away I went.It's the first time that I can remember being able to enjoy driving a rod so late in the year in this part of the country. I'm sure I'll pay the piper soon!

    This morning we got some freezing rain in Milwaukee. Probably the official end to the driving season, when they start sprinkling salt on the roads.

    Grew up around Buffalo in 40's, 50's...everyone would put their "winter car" on the road, mid Nov. Seeing the roadster in snow is definitely strange to see !!

    We drove ours around town a few days ago. They slted the roads heavily and then we got a big storm yesterday so no we're taking the car back out!! Everytime we get ice on the roads, they salt, and then 2 days later it pours so its perfect to drive again!

    We're still drivin'!

    I took my car off the road Oct 1st, man do I regret that. I could have drivin it all of October, November, and most of December. There has been salt on the roads here for a couple weeks now. I just fixed all my rot, I'm not looking for any more "patina"

    Now you ARE nuts, I was at that swap and it was F***n' COLD up there!! Nice car too!

     
  20. Well, I'm still driving my 40 up here in Canada, it has a heater and still have no snow (ok, maybe a 1/4 inch). But the roads are dry and I'm having a blast!

    Might be doing the New Years Eve out to Dinner Drive in my 46.

    Have had it out in Nov, depends more on the salt than the weather.
