Mustang storage winter? What??

Who drives there car year round?
I definitely do! doesn't matter if it was a Ferrari I would be
driving it in the snow and in the summer.
Sure I get stuck about once a week! Mainly in my driveway and it lets loose a lot at bad times but I bought it to drive it
anyone else a year round Mustang driver?

I drive mine year round. I never have issues with snow since I'm running snow tires.

I bought my first car, my 1966 Mustang, in December 2006 and used it as my year round car until August 2013. lol I used it for the long drive to Kansas for college, in the winter, in the rain. Then in August I bought my 2005 Mustang, and you know what, I drive that through winter too. lol

Bought the car to drive, not let it sit in the garage. But this year I picked up another car, 2010 Mercury Mariner, for commuting. With a 90 mile round trip each day it racks up the miles quickly and my wife suggested that rather than run the 2013 to 203,000 like I did my 2006 I should get something to commute with and keep the miles down some on the 2013.

But I drove it all last winter, and have had it out a couple of times this winter as well. Never been stuck with it either.

Road salt and cars are not best friends. Drove mine a little bit last winter then said screw it. I did drive my V6 every winter though. That wasn't too bad in snow.

Mines all I've got so it sees rain snow and salt, took me a year to buy into snow tires but now I wouldn't go out without them from December to March! Just wish they'd put down less salt

That salt is nasty. Over 3 winters, it played a leading role in eating two holes clear through the rear quarters on my sixxer. This winter has been especially nasty. Snow at least once a week since early december. And no matter how much snow; they always dump truckloads of salt.

should run your car threw the car wash once a week man don't let that **** just sit on your car, and go to a self serve one and make sure to wash your undercarriage. I do and my car turns into ice but it gets all the road grime off
