No, you are not the only one. I am putting it away soon. As soon as they say we are getting snow. Giving it a goog cleaning, ordered a cover and sticking it in the garage next to my Iroc, and waiting for nice weather again.
Hey we still got to get together one of these days. Are you going down to the Big O for the show this weekend?
We are going to drive Bullette as long as the roads stay dry and no gravel down.
I was talking to a 99 Cobra man today and he said our Mustangs DO NOT manouver well in snow! He said they do terribly! He thought that maybe that was because of the size of tires and that if he was to drive her in the snow he would get snow tires of a different size.
And how about car covers while they are in the garage? Do they scratch the car?

I'll be putting mine away any day now. Will be filling the tank, putting fuel stabilizer in, and putting it up on jackstands, and probably disconnect the battery and leaving it on charge. I have been hearing conflicting stories about the worth of putting it on jackstands. Any of you guys/girls have any thoughts about that?
Yeh, Vicki, 99Cobra guy is right about the tires. First, the tread on the summer tires is absolutely useless on even the least bit of snow, and the winter tires should be narrower than summer tires so they can cut thru the snow easier.
I'm putting good ol' 2759 in storage too. Doing the same stuff everyone else has mentioned here. Wondering though, what will having the battery disconnected for so long do to the computer when fired up again. Any concerns there?
I put our Bullitt away for the winter, after filling the tank and adding fuel stabilizer. I don't use the jack stands method as I was told it was not really necessary for only 5 months storage. I was told to leave the battery in and start her about once a month. I guess I will start it and let it run as the tempature allows. I was a little aprehensive on the fuel stabilzer due to the injectors (have used stabilizer for years in my 1500 Goldwing which has no injectors) but went ahead and put it in. Any thoughts on this? Thanks
My Bullitt is about to go away. I have been looking around for tips and found a few additional hints. Using an oil additive like slick-50 will keep the upper engine parts well lubed during the 5 months. They also suggested parking the car on ~2 inches of cardboard boxes to prevent flat spots. The third thing is putting open boxes of baking soda to absorb moisture and soap cakes to prevent an animal infestation. (I assume this last one is for the more rural crowd.
4713 is being put away for the winter sometime in late November. It's in good company though. I will let you know if the Boss and the Bullitt breed this winter. Stay tuned! That will be a "sick" car! :grin:
Well.....I guess I am different from the breed. I am driving mine all winter. I don't care. I am not keeping my car in a plastic bag and hoping it will increase in value someday. Why should I make it nice for someone else.....I want to enjoy this car as much as possible. The body is sprayed underneath with Rust Check and that works perfectly. I bought 4 Goodyear M/S tires with 17" Bullitt wheels and I should be just fine. Been there done that before with the F-body and it was fine.
I agree, I'll be driving mine all year as well. I used to have a 95 GT Convertible, didn't drive it sold it with 34,000 km and wished I had more fun with it. I purchased Toyo Garnet GT 225/50/17 on 2000 GT 17x8 for winter. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who will get to enjoy my BULLITT year-round.
