Long Winter Keeps Corvettes in the Garage

By -


It seems like smart people have moved south, and regretfully, I’m not in with that group of people. There’s still salt on the roads, and who knows when the next fresh coat of spring snow is coming to the Midwest. It’s not really any condition for driving a Corvette. As such, the more northern members of Corvette Forum have been expressing their woes.┬áIt might be made worse by the fact that we have had a few days scattered around here and there that turned out to be rather pleasant, and then 24 hours later there’s another inch or so of snow on the ground.

With most cars still in winter mode, I’m curious to see how you guys store and maintain your rides. For my car, I start it once a week, and if it’s clear, drive it for a couple of miles. Otherwise I haven’t yet found a need for a trickle charger or any form of gasoline stabilizer. That said, my car’s intervals between startups are fairly frequent compared to others.

Also, what are you all doing to get your car ready for the better weather? Because it is coming soon, right?
