Long winter's nap
Here in Minnesota, we're pretty thrilled to get a decent November weather weekend like we've just had. 60+ degrees and dry. Next week it'll drop back to seasonal 40s and keep heading down with snow, etc. not far off. I put off getting the cars tucked in longer than usual this year and lucked out with some extra miles and one last Cars and Coffee event on Saturday. (the usual, too many new German cars, Lambos, one other lone spider and a pesky herd of old Brits.)
I have a 3 plus garage out here in the 'burbs. In the summer, I put my daily driver (TSX) outside, and park my very understanding, beautiful and did I say patient wife's RAV4 inside with the Alfas for extra breathing room for projects, etc.
As you can see from the photos, I use roller dollies to snug both cars up tight to reclaim as much room as possible and to all 4 in for the long winter. Still easy to access if I need to get at something.
I have one winter project lined up, redoing the seats in the spider, but then what?
