Did anyone else take out their (winter stored) car today?

I couldn't resist!! It was +4 and the roads were dry!!

Went to wrench on my car & start her up where she is stored & had to take her for a little blast... Can't even explain how amazing that was! I miss the summer

Anyone else "cheat" today??

I wish, but mine is down to an AC compressor and two mounts from being motorless. It's got a bad oil leak that I suspect is the timing cover gaskets plus I'm doing the clutch/flywheel so it's just easier that way. I've been working on it for like a year now when I get time here and there (it's been a CRAZY year at work), but the rear suspension is brand new and I'm finally starting to see the light. I just hope I have it done by spring cause I really miss driving it and can't wait to again.

So yeah, I'm jealous.

You talked me into firing mine up today, and I got carried away and drove around the block (and then some!). Good times!

no, but it was sure tempting. I'll probably start it up today though.

What's this starting up of the engines, I thought you weren't supposed to.

There are two ways of thinking on this topic.
Myself and many others believe that the worst thing is to let a car just sit for 6 months as there are potential, internal and external engine issues that could arise.

When I stored my M5, I started it and drove it (outside if it was nice or inside the underground) once a month.
