Looks like it will sleep well...sorry for that...we drive year round here with maybe a few days here and there with snow. No salt on our roads. Great looking car and man cave, btw.

Nice garage! It is that time of year. I'm not putting mine away quite yet, I tend to wait until the last minute, meaning I wait for snowfall that brings salt to the roads.

It's too early Plenty of nice days left. I know you guys get the white stuff pretty early in Upstate, NY. I try to sneak mine out as long as the roads are clear and dry.

I'll be putting mine in the pole barn later today as I just won't have time in the next month to do the year end maintenance, cleaning and storage prep. Had a couple inches of snow last night with some sleet/ice at start so roads will be slick today. Focus now shifts in next 60 days to hunting (bow and rifle) and then some family weekend obligations will require using the Yukon XL Denali vs. the C6 for space needs. Being in northern MN results in earlier sleep patterns than down by the cities.

I don't have to worry about this as I live in Florida, but way the multi layers. Isn't a good cover enough.

I haven't put mine away yet but it won't be long. I'm gonna put mine on my Quick Jack when I do though. Hook up the battery tender and put the car cover on her.

That is pretty far north! I grew up near Brainerd and the cities are warmer and later winter. We had a light dusting a couple weeks ago, no salt, nothing stuck to the road so still OK to drive.
