Default Official Count Down Until Spring, March 20, 2019, that's less than 4 months.

Well this November REALLY sucked with its December like temperatures and first winter blizzard punching us squarely in the face yesterday on November 26, 2018, so let's look on the bright side and how the first official day of Spring will be here in less than 4th months, on March 20, 2019 (just 112 days from today).

While are fun, go fast cars are currently grounded after our first official winter blizzard, click on the link below for our first official count down until Springtime, when the fun cars are getting ready to come out for the new 2019, go fast in your vette or other cool car, official new car season.

This is true my friend, but you have to admit this November acted like it was the month of December, starting winter off early by one month and prompting me to make this post.

The good news Steve is that there is just 110 days now until Calendar Spring (and counting)! : )

110 days seems like a long time, but in reality it isn't. I just turned 70 and it seems the older I get the faster time passes. My brain keeps telling me I'm 17, but my body knows better. I've come to the realization that every day, regardless of the weather, is a gift from God. I traded in my 2016 Z06 and I'm taking delivery of my 2019 Z06 today. Unfortunately, it's going to sit in our garage for several months. Have a very Merry Christmas.

AMEN to that Steve, everyday is no doubt a gift from GOD! I also agree each year we get older time and winter goes by faster and faster (unfortunately yes and no). That being said each day like we are having right now where the roads are clean enough for us hardcore (not afraid of a little salt powder) enthusiasts to take our super cars out, helps us (or at least me) make winter pass and be more tolerable BIG time! I realize many vette and sport car guys put there car away permanently once December arrives, etc., and to each his own. That also being all said, what made you trade in your C7 Z for a 2019 Z when the cars are essentially the same? Now trading in your first C7 Z06 for a C7 ZR1 make a ton of sense to me, but trading in a 2016 Z06 for a 2019 Z06 if your not road racing her, has me scratching my head?

Took mine for a run out in the sticks the day after Thanksgiving. It was 50 degrees, crops are harvested, you can see for miles. Cleaned her up and found a little, gasp, salt dust. Don't care!

Merry Christmas! Go Irish!

I have no idea, Jimmy. I guess my best answer (not trying to sound snobbish) is because I can. I had been looking at a different color (Elkhart Lake Blue), but my wife didn't like it. After visiting the dealership I decided to order a '19. Seriously, I have no logical explanation. My '16 only had 5,200 miles on it. My '19 is Arctic White with an Adrenaline Red interior, just like my '16. I did upgrade to carbon fiber side skirts, front and rear spoiler, etc., etc., and competition seats. Sometimes I mystify myself as well.

I'm not looking forward to my tire bill come spring. The C7 is down to the wear bars...

But after that horrid November, December has been quite mild. Maybe the rest of the season can be like that? If so all the cars parked at my house might return to their homes sooner (I have a co-workers 2016 Mustang GT350R in my garage and my dads "new to him" 2012 S197 Mustang V6 Manual in the driveway). 3 battery tenders is oppressive on my electric bill...
