    I roll the windows down half way while driving instead of all the way down.

    Drive it all year round, doesn't snow here. Gets cold but not what you get.
     
  12. Rip it apart, fix what didn't work and make it better for the next summer.

    LOL I also take the hood and air cleaner off it and push it out in the snow bank. With all the windows rolled down. Then I leave it there till spring so I have a easy project.

    In the summer I installed the bigest heater that I could find.
    In the winter I use it!

    PS, the pick up gets a big sand box in the back!

    I park it out back complain how much I hate winter keep the wood stove stoked and complain how much I hate winter. Dream of a heated garage or even a decent garage that I could safely store my car in and complain about how I HAVE WINTER. OH AND COMPLAIN ABOUT southern guys laughing about driving there cars all year. We get snow even in the most southern part of our country.

    The worst part is feeling bad about putting it down to fix it instead of driving it..

    Drive it 2-3 times a week. The bitch is finding down time to detail it.
    Some times when it's cold you gotta put a beanie on in the evenings.

    During Winter I chip away at the long "To Do" list. This consists of needed repairs as well as desired changes. This Winter the two big projects are the rebuilding of the engine and interior. The remainder of the long list is the never ending odds and ends stuff.
