    It does get a little toasty here in July and August but I moved here from Montana 12 years ago(lived there all my life)to get out of the snowy/cloudy winters in Whitefish and have never looked back haha. I bought my 458 from Ferrari of Denver and they delivered it to me and told me to let know them know if I needed service to call them and they would come and get the car. I do my service stuff myself so haven’t had to call them.

    Radiant heated garage, factory car cover. Whole car inside a "Car bag" with several mouse snap traps baited regularly. Car taken out and started every 2 or 3 weeks to let run and heat up. Winter is too long here, and there is plenty of time to spend in the garage. ;)

    Jeez-the definition of "winter storage" has been redefined-nice info.I have used glue traps instead of bait .Not sure if they're better cause a mouse was actually never caught, but that's all that matters

    From experiences at the cottage, glue traps don’t work as well in cold temps. I think the glue hardens and isn’t as sticky. They worked ok in the summer, but never caught a thing over winter,
    Some would say they may be less humane when they work, as well...but thats debatable.

    Just drove my 355 today. 50s. Hoping for a mild winter. Nothing like a bright red Ferrari on the roads in fall and better winter months.

    I'll add the last time I run my car before putting it away I make sure it is fully up to operating temperature.

    Jim,

    When do you typically take the cars out of storage to use again in the spring?

    I saw a post recently where a guy trailers his car to Florida for the winters. ;)

    I'm thinking about the opposite for the summers.
