It's done!

Last driver of the season.

Gave it a good wash, wax, interior detail and fuel stabilizer.

All that is left to be done is get it up on some blocks.

I already can't wait until spring.

Nice - I can't remember if the Bucksnort is in Dillon or Pine, but it's worth a visit on a cold day - great food, great beer, great view!

Yeah, I was going to suggest Texas...it's a very nice 83 degrees right now; not that I'm biased or anything.

Certainly would not accuse you of being biased - Currently a balmy 48 with a light rain here.

You wouldn't be looking to adopt would you?

Make sure you go for a short run to dry out the underbody. If you just leave it parked for the winter after the wash, the dampness can get into the system.

Move to Oklahoma. 75 degrees today. The SLK is one of my winter cars. It's got a hard top and a good heater and heated seats and airscarf, doesn't it? What snow we get can usually be handled without snow tires -- otherwise you'll have to park it for a couple of days. And we have winter days when you can drive top down.

And these are the only reasons I can think of for moving to Oklahoma.
