Wonderful! :D

Although I would go bonkers if I didn't even get to SEE my car, let alone drive it, for that long. You must have the patience of a saint, Susie! I imagine your car was super excited to see you as well, kinda like an excited puppy. "Hi hi! Is it time to go out now, can we go outside?!"

I am going bonkers!!!! I flung the door open and kissed my car!!!!....then I wiped the spot where I kissed her!!

Challenger therapy. Works every time.
Can't wait to hear that engine ROAR!!!

Jim.....you can get a 22' for around 7K stripped. Ours is 24'...double insulated with lots of storage. Beats spending 15K on a garage.

That's just what I was thinking, Susie! And it would be mobile...not that I can forsee too much usage that way, but it's always nice to have the option. Thanks. :smileup:

Thanks for cheering me up Dan!!!

Congrats on the reunion, for me it's like the day you first bought her, a feeling I get to feel every year.
It's gonna be one hell of a first ride when I get in that seat come Spring!

I guess I take it for granted we never see snow and can drive year round. Congrats on achieving your fix.
Thanks....we're seriously looking to move to FL....can't take this one more year!

I'll bet that smile was huge! I know, because I pulled the cover off mine in the garage just to look at my engine bay and had the same look on my face.

It was such a nice day here yesterday (33 degrees), I fired up my wife's Mustang to move it so I could get the ladder out of the garage to get the rest of my Christmas lights down (just too much snow). She said she heard it from in the house and it sounded so good. Makes me want to fire up the Challenger, but then I will just be tempted to drive it and the weather is just not there yet........Oh well......

Hey Susie, like minds here! Although no garage or trailer for mine. However I did pull the cover back & fired the beast up. Let it run long enough to cycle the thermo a couple times. Ahhhhh, so soothing to hear!

Don't know if I can do another winter like this. Sarasota FL is beckoning me!

I'm with ya! This has been the most brutal Winter...and it's not over yet! There's so much salt, gravel, and potholes all over...it'll be a loooong time before my car hits the road.

winter....seems so long ago that it all started, doesn't it?! I feel your pain Susie...but hang in there....February is almost history...March is on it's way.


I guess for me, if nothing else, I'll "see" my car everyday in March at least.

This seems like the longest, coldest most miserable rotten winter I can ever remember.

Of course buying one of the coolest cars I have ever seen in the middle of this rotten,

cold, long winter hasn't helped any. Please don't tell anyone but saturday I got my key

opened up my car and then I sat in it and gripped the steering wheel going vroom,

vroom, vroom. I then came inside and ordered a bunch of bling for it that I can't

afford but it did make me feel better.
