When can we get back on the road...

I am one of the people that has their car garaged for the winter. I live in MA and I am projected to get another 12-18 inches of snow tomorrow.

Anybody else feel like they won't have their cars and bikes out till at least a week or 2 into April??

Also it's getting close to meet season. I am gonna begin to look some up but if anybody knows of please post them. Will give me something to look forward to.

No. I drive mine in NH year round. That is why I bought it to drive. I feel sorry for people who preserve their cars for their next owner instead of enjoying them themselves.

When I bought my car it was my DD. Long story but I wound up with another car that became my DD. With all my performance cars I have always had a second car to put the miles on, gets great gas mileage, quiet, and automatic. Then on the weekends or whenever it's nice I take the bike or toy car. It's more enjoyable that way.

I buy the fun car to put the miles on. Not trying to save gas. Maybe if I drove more, that would be a concern and Id think about modding a 335d I know someone with a modded one that does high 11s at 119mph in the quarter. I drive only about 15-16k total per year in my 2 cars (modded NA 08M3, turbo 99M3). Both have snow wheels for winter. When I buy a 991TT in a year or two it will get snow wheels and be driven year round.

My car has been away since late November. I had it out once a few weeks ago. I'm hoping to get it out the end of of the month but it all depends on the roads/weather. I have a pretty nice winter beater so I'm in no hurry to get it out.

Damn that was one hell of a storm. I got 23 jnches. The snow banks are massive. The car isn't coming out for a month now I bet. Already a chance of snow for next Tuesday/Wednesday.
