Took the cover off and installed my new LLOYDS mats. Man do I miss driving this car. It's only been put away for about a month now, but it seems like forever.

We continued to wash it and the snow stopped long enoough to dry it and pull it back into the garage.I hope to spot clean it tomorrow then put the cover on until Spring.

All dressed up and nowhere to go. Cold, salty, wet roads. I spent two hours with my two week old 2017 Z51 coupe with 312 miles on the clock so far (stick, LT2, nav, trans. roof) today and figured out a bunch of things about the infotainment system, programmed and arranged radio selections, got the battery tender hooked up etc. Driving opportunities will be scarce between now and March up here I'm afraid.

Well, I drove 3.5 miles to Ohio from Michigan and bought it! Fun 3.5 hour drive. I only stalled it once leaving the dealership lol.
