Some more artsy shots... BTW make sure you keep the radiator air outlet cleared of snow, it can't be clogged up or you'll overheat. It's mentioned in the manual too.

>>>you don't have a garage?<<<

Sadly, not at the moment. My old house had a 5 car garage, heated, humidity controlled and so forth. And with a full workshop. I miss it!

:( I'd offer you my garage if I get to drive it. :D Poor little girl was probably shivering last night

Mine will be sitting outside al fresco this winter as well. I will avoid driving it in the snow whenever possible - last thing I need is a Hummer H2 on my ass in a blizzard.

That hurts just to look at.:(
I think it looks pretty cool. When it arrives, mine will be trekking thru the snow all winter, because I don't think I'll be able to not drive it no matter what the weather. :)

Wow, Stan-that picture screams out for a hard top...or at least a car cover. BTW-is autoX season over for you? I think it'd be funny to do one in the snow.

We have one more here, next Sunday at Atco stadium in Jersey.

The Ring was of course closed due to the snow - so this is what happens late at night when people have too much time on their hands...

And here's Ian digging his car up again in the morning :D



Despite the Ring being closed we did have a lot of fun in the snow on the Grand Prix circuits paddock. Sideways-tastic :clap:

looks like a water pipe froze and ran through the ceiling in an unheated garage to me. I had a pipe freeze above my garage one time - collapsed all the ceiling dry wall into the garage - fortunately both cars were out at the time and it did not freeze - but **** happens....

As long as it's not mine! :p Reminds me that I have to clean out my garage before the Elise arrives.

I like snow. But I'd rather drive a Subaru than a Lotus in winter weather. Especially if I can find an empty parking lot at night. :D

Jer: An auto-x on snow is a (winter) rally-x. Or if you're hardcore, I heard that the ice races they have on frozen lakes in Wisconsin are a blast.
