I bought 2 vehicles this year. A new(14) GT and a Buick Enclave. I too am a summer, weekend only Mustang guy. Car will be stored Nov. thru April. Wisconsin winters can be brutal. Car will never see salt or snow. Will hardly ever see rain. Its just too nice. The Buick on the other hand is my DD.

How do you store your car over half of a year and only drive it on weekends when you actually do ️Drive it?!!!! That's horrible 😳😐

Not really. That way we can keep our cars around for decades of enjoyment and don't have to worry about them deteriorating in front of their eyes. Like I said in another thread, that's what we do in Wisconsin. It's so easy for people in warm weather climates to tell us to drive our cars.

Enjoy it now or sell it now.

Not using any car is not really that good. If I were you I would go enjoy the car and just keep it super clean and maintained.

The only other option is to look around for a left over 2014 Roush now and trade it in. If your heart is set on a 2015 Roush just get it now. You will save a full years depreciation on your 2014 if you trade now.

The very worst thing anyone can do is worry too much about $$$$ and not enjoy the time we have on Earth. Need more $$$, Get another part time job to save for what you really want.

It's not only what you see, it's what you can't see that really kills you. It's costly and not really practical to go to the car wash constantly and get an underbody flush when temperatures can dip below freezing for months. Then there is the salt dust that remains on the road all winter long.

If people are buying cars to only keep a few years and then trade in before the salt starts to take its toll, I guess that's a different story. If you want to keep your car for a long time, it will definitely catch up with you.

I totally understand it depends on where you are at and some weather/road conditions can be nasty for your vehicle.
I used to store my drag car from November through March in a heated garage up on jack stands and as long as a car is stored properly and maintained while in storage I understand it depends on where you are at.
I have a friend who has a 2011 GT/wTrakPak and the car has a total of 8000 miles. It never sees rain or snow here in the Northwest and if it looks like it might rain he drives the Corvette, go figure.

Better to crash a Corvette than a Mustang GT /w TrakPak of course I do wish Ford would make a engine as good as the LS that can take tons of power and abuse.....

That's the Coyote, even the V6 is a stout motor and very reliable. I'd even say the Cyclone is more reliable than the coyote.

Unexpected icy mist came through this morning. Froze on the roads. Accidents everywhere. So glad I was driving my Dakota and my Mustang was tucked away in the garage.

Don'y listen to anybody about Florida

It has been horrible here with the cold weather. It has been going all the way down into the 40's at night and never got over about 72 today.
The sun still will fade your paint if you don't keep some sort of wax type protection on your car.
If your thinking of moving to Florida--"DON"T-- Your much better off with your " CHANGING OF THE SEASONS"

Ronnie
PS: The weather girl say's it may rain here Sunday, Then the roads get all wet. Bummer

The weather here in Central Florida has been way to cold this early in the "winter"
My "Summer" tires feel like hockey pucks in the mornings. Hopefully its not a sign to come. I think it was 3 or 4 winters ago when I saw snow flurries. I almost packed up and headed south lol.

I know just what you mean

I live in Port Orange /Daytona area and when it gets down in the 40's it is like freezing. I walk my dog at 11 PM and again at 7 AM when it is still cold. It has only been going up to around 72 in the afternoons. Brrrr
This has been an unreasonably cold fall. Winter starts this Sunday and I'm sure we will have some rain.
My car is parked in my garage so I don't get the tire thump when it gets cold out.
My tires are filled with nitrogen so the temperature change does not affect them much at all anyway.

I'm sure the people up north really feel bad for us with our cold weather problems.

Random drives, those are the best kind of trips. That's where most of my miles have come from. Storage in winter has saved mine from being over 50k. The first 9 months I put on 18k miles.
I'm not gonna take the car with me when I pass away. So what's point of saving it in garage to lust after it but not drive it. 30+ years and sell it at Barrett Jackson and hope to make a profit.

Grabber blue, definitely agree on babying it!!

Well that's what I do. Had a 69 Camaro I did the same thing with for over 25 years. By doing that it kept the car in showroom condition.

People get hung up on miles, when someone drives there car on the highway or whatever , and you are at a good operating temp for a longer period of time it is good for the car , you have essentially no wear on the motor and you are keeping moisture out of the drive train and such. As said above you'll get bent over anyway going to the dealer, I would just keep it clean and most of all keep it maintained - just my 2 cents

I think somebody may have left a letter off of this.

Instead of "How important are miles
*********It should say****************8
How important are "SMILES"

I understand the miles game if you have a rare or numbered car that will hold individual/personal value example if you have a old (60's model) gto, camaro, etc then miles count. I have a 14v6 I bought new in February 2014 and is almost at 22k. Conserving miles really doesn't help on my car, when its time to trade it in, low or high miles eyeballs will be knocked out from the dealership. Drive and enjoy

I live in South Carolina and we have short/mild winters, I sit around every morning,drinking coffee and planning my daily drives. Gas is cheap and driving a mustang 5.0 is one of life's simple pleasures that I shouldn't have waited sooooo long to do. Bachman Turner Overdrive said it best, just Let It Ride,ride,ride,let it ride. Enjoy every day, don't waste your time and have a damn ball!!! rrrrrr n SC

I've got a 2001 Bullitt in the famous Dark Highland Green. It's a rare and numbered car. It also has 147k miles on it and plenty of modifications and track time.

It's meant to be driven.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

It is the best time to be driving-or- riding a Harley

I used to do this when I was working and before my health took a crap. The only difference was I rode my Harley and ended up at work instead of home.

Personally, I am more concerned about the affects of driving in Winter and that's why I park my cars. It has never been to keep the miles down. That just happens to be a byproduct. Even in the Summer, I never think about miles when I choose a vehicle to drive. I base my decision on where I am going, where will it be parked, and what is the weather like. My choices have NEVER been based on mileage because I love driving my cars.

I sold my turbo 4 cylinder LeBaron convertible years ago with 227,000 miles only because a rod went.

I currently have 154,000 miles on my '95 T/A that I bought with 67,000 back in 2003.

I don't buy my cars to resell. I buy them, fall in love with them and enjoy them until something happens to them that makes no sense to eventually repair.

See that's perfectly fine. If it's dealing with snow then yea park it to keep it nice. But remember the OP was talking about not going on a simple drive to hang out with friends because of the miles. I think we all agree that those miles are worth it.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I drive my stang 7 days a wek and rack up almost 1k miles a week. I actually bought it BECAUSE I was going to be driving a lot and wanted to be in a car that didn't suck donkey dicks all day. Seriously, now I look forward to my 1 hour commute even in the Wisconsin snow. Its not even hard. We only have real amounts of snow on the roads like 5 days a year. Theres these fancy vehicles they have now called plow trucks and they get the snow off. 4wd is for women and 16 year old rookies.
