Wow! And I,m worried about driving the Elise that I'm having shipped to Wisconsin next week. I may have to last 5 miles from the delivery point to my house in the rural outback. We have had at least a foot of snow on the ground here since early December.
Plan is to leave Hudson (OH) Saturday morning. Arrive at a friends house in Chicago, wash the car and store it in his warm garage. Then drink lots of scotch Saturday evening, wake up Sunday and proceed to Duluth. Time for another car wash, and I am renting a garage that stays around 60 degrees.
Salt is my only concern at this time.
Back up plan is to leave it in OH and pick it up later :shrug:
Good luck, we are getting rain changing to snow Thurs night into Friday am, otherwise dry here for the weekend. Buy a set of tire chains just in case (the low profile kind), cheap insurance. We'll keep our fingers crossed for you!
come on by Fox Valley Motorcars on Saturday for our after auto show open house. lots of cool cars to look at, and plenty of enthusiasts on hand to chat with. i will be there for a bit, not quite sure when.
i live right by Barington too. i am in Crystal lake. mabey we can get a group of Lotus/car people together to meet for drinks somewhere, if you would like, on Saturday night. Woolstreet in Barrington or Cary are both cool places
