Well, it’s done! This year my car is not going to brave the harsh winter outside buried in snow or covered in icicles. No—this year it’ll be snug inside under wraps with life support trickling into the battery. I’ve taken all the other precautions— stuffed up the tailpipe with steel wool to keep out vermin; put dryer sheets in the cockpit and engine bay for the same reason. I’ve topped off the fuel tank and added conditioner; loosened the fan belt and topped off the brake and clutch reservoirs. I put the car in position in the garage, put the transmission in gear and released the handbrake. I hooked up the trickle-charge battery source. Finally I shrouded the car in a car cover and gave it a loving pat on the boot.

See ya in the Spring!

> Check out the fun we had at the annual Holiday Party.
