It's a scorching 40 degrees in SW Michigan!

So I waxed my car for the first time! Gotta get that salt off finally!

Put in the matte black grills and gilles too. I had black chrome in but didn't like how it was kind of gray. Now deciding if I like the matte or if I would prefer gloss. Gonna have to see when my F14 SDCs come in in matte black.

West Michigan here. Looks good! All of this waiting to get my car back out for spring is killing me. Jealous that you had a chance already.

I'm in Kalamazoo so it's like 45 so that's nice.

Cf splitters and spoiler and probably rear diffuser and side skirts are planned. And black chrome exhaust tips.

We had a beautiful 60 degree day about a week back here in western Massachusetts, so I took the M out to run an errand for the first time after its winter hibernation. Got covered in melting grimey snow run off, but I couldn't resist the need to drive.

We have had a decent amount of snow melt now, and enough rain so that the salt has been washed away and won't get onto the car too much. Time to get her out for real very soon. Just waiting for a little pothole repair.

Lots of snow. We had a record number of days in a row with at least a 12" snow base this year, something like 45 straight days. We probably had 18-20" on the ground before temps got above freezing for the first time, then 3 days later it snowed another 8". Now it's finally melting.

I am hoping that next weekend is as nice as they say it is going to be. I have a whole room full of stuff to install on the car, but it is still being stored at my moms house for winter

About an hour northwest of Grand Rapids. I have a new set of wheels coming, too. My stockies still have summer tires which is why i haven't driven it yet. It snowed here today and the outlook isn't looking good for this coming weekend.

It was 70 degrees here yesterday, and it happened to be Cars and Coffee. Check out the trees in the background

Gotta love living in the South! I feel for you guys.
