This past Winter has been colder than most in the past, but a Texan is more likely to have a Port-A-Cool in his garage than a heater. Some even have A/C units. A few years ago, San Antonio had 59 days of 100%+, and some elderly people died. Austin has several speed shops and many hotrod-streetrods, AND the best car show in April called the LONESTAR ROUNDUP, but the taxes are exhorbatively high. You might try San Antonio. Good Luck in your decision. P.S. I hope you can make the LSRU, LonestarRoundup, April 17-18.
