i took the teg off the road because id rather but a $1500 something to drive for the winter than risk slamming my integra into a something, rock chips on brand new paint, rust, etc.


funny thing is my new car isnt comming off the road for the winter tho.

My car is actually lower to the pavement than waylons... i take mine off the road because of :HARD COLD starts, Risk of hitting somthing or someone hitting you, Rock chips in the new paint, salt on the roads = rust for hondas.

Not to mention you don't have to care about winterbeaters. You don't have to wash them, you don't have to be careful. if a parking lot is covered with snow and you hit a curb because you can't see it.. ohwell. Insurance is $100 per month! and then less wear and tear on expensive parts of your good car.

enough said.

anyday it could come.... anyday i tell you. and it's nice to have the car tucked away all nice and freshly washed BEFORE the snow hits, so that you have a clean car in storage.

One day if it is nice this winter and all the roads are dry we should throw day insurance on the cars and go for a cruise.
