Did your girlfriend dump you for a guy who stores his whip away for the winter?

Okay guys, I apologize and let me rephrase my first post, will you?

Okay here goes, I don't store my car for the winter mainly because I don't see the reason why plus I don't have a winter beater. I'm often confused why people chose to store a perfectly good car that can take a winter beating. So here I ask you guys why you store your cars for the winter.

(takes away all the name calling)

Is that better? I seriously didn't mean to offend, granted I shouldn't have put in Pansies, sissies, etc.

PS you don't have to answer those questions I just asked because I clearly found out from several upset Bonnevillians.

This is the catch though. Its not that people who store their car think that their car can't handle it. If you have the means, why not protect your INVESTMENT.

Why store a perfectly good car? To keep it a perfectly good car. Salt is REALLY bad for metal. Partially because it is a metal itself.

What? I thought the Bonneville had fiberglass panels, because one time I was driving through town and I saw a Bonneville (92-95) that had a smashed up fender and I could see a hole and some fibers sticking out and I assumed it was fiberglass. Jeez, I was majorly misinformed, now I understand why you guys store the cars, all this time I though the car was made of fiberglass. Idiot, idiot!

So am I forgiven? Or not?

105k miles, pretty well taken care of but driven all year long. It is a 1994 and the pictures were taken this last summer. It had not been on the road since 2003 though. The circled spots are rotted right though and thats not to mention how DISGUSTING the undercarriage is. Take THAT into consideration. If this were a $30k car it would be a SHAME even more than it is for this poor little thing
