Still driving her

well it is late Oct here in Ohio and I still drive my Shelby as often as I can. I really don't want to put it up just yet. I plan on doing this until they salt the roads or it doesn't get above 40 any more then 1 day a week. Anybody else with me or I should just get over it and put her away till next spring?

I got mine in the garage yesterday for the first time since last spring. I am hoping for an Indian Summer pretty soon so I can take it for another spin in the curvy roads.

If you have the sane Goodyear F1 tyres I have Goodyear has a bulletin that says the sidewalls crack below 40 so be carful with them

I drive all year! Life is too short to deny yourself of these cars for months...I don't take "wait till next summer" as a given - you just never know. As long as the roads are clear of snow or ice...I'll be out there.
