Wink When will winter end?! Anyone else eager to get their Summer TOys out? :)

i know I am! hoping April 1 or sooner if weather permits...

sometimes I just go out to the garage and stare at her... a tear in my eye haha

what's the first thing you will do to your summer baby? i'm giving mine a bath, then cruising! maybe one rolling burnout to warm up the tires

Took mine out already. I just wash it twice a day if it gets dirty. Luckily there isn't any salt around here. Hasn't been for a week or so

Well mine was driven this winter, just picked up kosei's with falken 615's and was sooooo temped to put them on just for the weekend!!

Couple more weeks, but the rain last few days has washed the salt away really well, had no salt smear on the window head to buffalo and back Friday, it's almost summer mode time!!

I had my car out and road ready on March 1st last year. I'm hearing it's quite terrible this year, WTF! Although the roads are supposedly super clean because of the rain you guys are getting, I just hope it doesn't snow again and they salt/sand the roads. It better be decently warm and clear by April 23!

This will be my first summer with the car, since I only got it last October. Looking forward to some nice weather just so I can break out the supplies and do the body work!! Rust on the hood and rear quarter wheel well has to go away! But also doing some custom work that I am anxious to get done. Can't wait to put on the summer rims, too.
