I've driven my bonne through winter since I've had it. These cars are great in the snow, that'* one of the reasons I bought mine to begin with. I say save your money.Befor the weather gets to bad put an extra coat of wax, Maguire'*, or whatever you use,and wash her every week. You can always have her painted in the future.

I'd spend the money on a nice set of winter tires and continue to drive it. As long as you dont already have rust like I do, just wash the car off after you drive it. Get like a pump spray of pure water and wash off the salt and icky snow each time youre done driving under the car.

ok, for advice, i think ill drive it, even if i need a new paintjob in a close future. (i have tiny spot of rust under the rear fender (both) and on the hood, close to wiper.

car as already been partialy repaint because of vandalism. (before i bought it)

i love the car in winter, the best car ive driven in winter.

ill try to wash it as many time as possible, probably the best thing i can do. like i see.

Thanks all for your opinion.

The only thing bad about out side storage is mice, and if parked long enough it can premote rust on your under careage. cover it up good mabie up on blocks. And get it out
ASAP next summer. another good thing to do is give all your alum. on your motor a light
coating of wd-40 to prevent carosion.
