Prime Corvette "season", is approaching here in south Florida.

The next 4 to 5 months will be mostly, sunshine, blue skies, low humidity, with temps in the low, to mid 70s nearly every day.

Of course, we still retain the right to say that we didn't know who we were voting for.

We'll be thinkin' about ya this winter!

I'm in the same boat C5NORTH, but I'm holding off until the bitter end. Hopefully there will be some nice weather coming and I can wait until November.

Put mine away last Saturday. It snowed in the Cleveland area yesterday. I gotta get out of this place.

I have always put mine away once the first grain of salt hits the road. Usually after thanksgiving in SW Ohio. Back out by early March most years.

I must agree, that is why I love the Tampa Bay area so much. This is the real cruising season. October thru March.

I'm in your shoes too, mine went to sleep on the 23rd. I'm up in WI. I dont mind putting it away though. I always find something to do with it while they sit. I'm going to attemp the Varraram and maybe LT's and 102 this winter, with friends help of course.

Here by the SF Bay, it's pretty much top-down weather all year long (sometimes with the heater on), but just to give you a silver lining, think of all the miles you won't be putting on the car, and how much more it will be worth when you sell it. Hey, I'm trying here...

What is the blue one in the background? Are you sure you have to store them? My friend talked me out of storing mine, and we live in Utah. He said just wait for an ideal day, it makes the winter more bearable.

2 Vettes????? The problems you face are awesome!!!!!

I know what you mean as I will be putting my new to us 2011 GS Vert away in November..trying to milk all the last few days we can as we've never owned a Vette before...Gettin' the noob miles on as much as we can...

Snow on the ground today here in WNY and that can only mean snowmobiling season is just around the corner for us...my most fun sport all year long...even my best friend who lives in Melbourne Beach, Fla. claims it was the best vacation he ever had when we both went to Quebec for a week of sledding at -12F....He had a complete riot and wants to go again...Just love the north..there's no one up here where I live...no traffic..congestion or any of that nonsense..plenty of cows and wildlife...

I stored my Harley ONCE, seemed like a 70* winter that year. I don't store the car or bike anymore, just wait for a decent day, with the "climate change" we seem to be getting more of those lately. If I get out (on either or both) a couple times a month in winter I'm happy...

We have a few more warm days coming up this next week, then I'll be putting her away for the winter and avoiding the November insurance payment. Yeah, it sucks.
