    The EC Boyz plan on driving throughout most of the New York winter. As long as the roads aren't icy or completely salt-filled, we'll keep having our runs.

    Forza!

    Parked? Am using my old Etoiles for winter driving while the Kinesis/Mich Sport PS 2 in the home nice and toasty. Once it gets cold enough will remove the Kinesis and have Blizzak WS-50 mounted on the Etoile rims.

    Drive drive drive :)

    Put my Ferrari away for the winter? Are you mad? I drive it 12 months a year. After all, I want to get my money's worth. :)

    You know, that time of year when it's comfortable to drive around with to top down. And you don't get 3rd degree burns from sitting on a black leather seat.

    Right now and the next few months are the perfect driving weather here, long lonely open desert highways.

    Winter....What is that? Park the Ferrari..NO WAY!! You guys should move down south and put the dark days of winter behind you forever!! I think most of the "rednecks" have moved north, so come on down!!

    Luckily, we don't have real winter in Thailand....all we have is summer, more summer, a bit of rain, and then summer again.

    Winter??? Cool! Now I can take the top down and not get a sunburn. Whoops, I forgot, It's probably going to rain for a day or two this winter. I'll put the top back up for those two days.

    Man, I SO much want to be on a sled when I see that.

    What's Winter? Come here and say that! ;)
    Simply put: It's the second half of the year!

    Ya, I wish I could drive my F-car all year around like you guys, but even before I put it away it was cool enough that on my whole trip to work (OK, it's short) the temperature guage never moved. So if I'm a good little boy that means "don't rev it over 3 grand", so it's hard to enjoy driving with the leash that tight.

    So again, what's Winter? It's when we go ice fishing of course!

    Best!

    Storing F-Cars is for p_ssies! I never put my car away! I'll drive that bastardess through rain, snow, salt, whatever. Living in New Jersey already sucks enough! If I put my car away for 3-4 months at a time I'd lose my mind!!!

    Okay, back to work.

    Oh, you must mean the GTO replica that's in my profile? Thanks!
    Actually I meant the Black 328, but of course they're both parked.
    I'll e-mail you pictures of the GTO, 'cause that's the one I think you mean.

    Next year I have to make a very difficult decision, do I sell the GTO or not.
    I've got too many 'fair weather' cars. I always wanted a real Ferrari so I just went ahead and got one, but now I have to decide what stays and what goes.
    It's a hard decision since the "Red one" just kills from some angles.

    Help?
