Bad news for corvette owners, fall is near. We’ll be thinking of storing our cars over the winter again

That's good news to me, not bad. Fall means I can roll down the windows and take the top off and not sweat off 10 lbs just driving down the street.

I just drive them less. We get some nice although cold days here in winter. The C6 sits more as its a vert. The C5 coupe will get out more in winter being a coupe. Light rain when the roads have not been recently salted wont hurt them.

my '02Z is my daily driver. Even here in the "wetland" of Oregon!! I have almost 90,000 on her and hubbies '07 just turned 81,000. Drive our beat up truck only when it snows or have to go get gravel!!
Now if I can only fix the turn over-start problem!!!

Do like I did, buy a lift and do one mod a year to make it a little more fun next year. To be honest I get bored with my z about sept. (does not feel fast anymore) let it sit over the winter and then in the spring it feels fast again
