Winter is coming. Hallelujah. I can't wait. So Discount Tire wants to make sure I'm not taken by surprise. Hmmm. That got me to thinking just what is "surprising" or different about winter here in Tampa:

  • I can stop worrying about hurricanes.
  • I can shut the air off and cruise with the windows down
  • I don't have to worry about ruining my seats because I'm so sweaty when I get in the car.
  • I don't have to sweat to death every time I try to wash the car.
  • It won't be raining every day
  • I'll live on a typical crummy dirt road rather than a mud pit.
Seriously looking forward to winter.

My '16 SRT 392 will go into storage here in Michigan in a few weeks. As I did last year, my car will be stored in an AutoJacket by carbag.com. The attached pictures are from last years storage facility and the day I uncovered it in May this year. Since I moved this summer, I now have a garage to store my car in. The additional pictures of my car in my driveway are from Sunday 9/10/17 after washing and detail waxing this beauty!

Billz,

So sad that you have to say good bye to your baby for so long. Hope you don't have to struggle with withdrawal symptoms. :wink3:

Thanks! Wish I could take it to Florida with me for the winter but the hard truth is that my Jeep GC wins out when it comes to practicality and functionality. I should probably just sell the Challenger and savor the memories...nuts!

You could always get a truck and enclosed trailer and tow it there if the Jeep won't pull it or you could have it shipped there or better yet just buy one for down there......

I am trying to get the most out of the nice Chicago weather. However, I still can't figure out what I should do to the car during the downtime when the white stuff starts falling:

1) tires & wheels (looking at the torq thrust deal from tirerack)
2) LT headers
3) Swap out the rubber bushings in the rear

I have a lifted Jeep liberty for the winter, besides I already have a traction problem with the supercharger in rain (can spin tires in 4th gear at 40mph when pedal is stomped). I could get by with traction control activated but it is the salt that makes me want to keep it a garage queen in the winter. :wink3:

From Illinois too, Orland Park. Chicago suburb. Keep it in the garage. Wash and wax first. Drive when I can. Last year I was wearing t-shirts outside in Feb......all month......so??? Take it day by day. I'm not dropping the collision or anything.
Lol.

Winter in MA is why I bought a GT. Be driving straight through. I know it's odd, but I love the white stuff.

Makes me want to get rid of the jeep and buy a GT just for winter driving. Probably would get better gas mileage. I have seen vids of AWD RT chargers driving through a foot of snow...looked like tons of fun!!
