See you in April

Hi Guys,

This is my Boxster in the garage, clean and ready to sleep.
Few minutes and I will cover it with a covering (in cotton) and...good winter...

Sleep tight beautiful Boxster... and awaken refreshed when the snow melts.

Reminds me that I've got to get to work to prepare mine for winter instead of spending all my Boxster time driving.

One more 800 mile drive this weekend, and then I start the 2 week process (working here....and working there) of a wheels off full concours detail, and then mine goes to sleep for about 6 months.

I was really surprised by this post. Some of the best driving of the year is still out there in Central PA. I thought Italy was much like Florida except for the northern mountains regions.

Still time to play

and I live in that area, in a beautiful town named Como not too far from the alps.

Here, spring, summer and autumn are very nice (today we have 26 C, +/- 78,8 F) , but, during the winter sometime snowing (20 kilometers/12 miles from here, there is a ski area, with mountains up to 2500 meters/9300 ft.)

Pop that frunk latch. Don't want to deal with a dead battery you can't get to in the spring.

Put a battery tender on it.

Of course around here -- the track season is just starting to hit full stride.

or better yet -- get some studded snow tires and hit the slopes!
