When I go off to college next year I will put it up on blocks in my dads garage, then put it back on the road for the summer and keep doing that until I'm out of school.

To prevent flat spots on the rims and tires from it sitting.

I'm so spoiled in the south there's only a handful of winter days you wouldn't want to drive a Stang.

There is no such thing as winter here, just cold, wet spring and hot summers.
