Personally I think that putting the car away for the winter months makes it that much more enjoyable to drive during the summer. By the end of the summer the novelty has worn off a bit and it get rekindled each spring.

this summer I replaced cap, rotor, wires, plugs, radiator fluid, replaced the chrome trim around the rear right tail light (a little rust from the screw that holds it in place was bugging me), idler arm, center link, muffler, rear brakes, radio (replaced the aftermarket that was in it when I bought it with an original 80's caddy radio), dash trim piece (the old was mangled to allow the aftermarket stereo), disassembled steering column to fix short in flasher/horn circuit, and reglued a dollar sized plastic chip that broke of the rear tail fin.

Not to mention they last a lot longer when they are not exposed to road salt.
 My 94 has never been winter driven nor oil sprayed and it still looks new underneath.

 Getting the car out in the spring is almost celebratory. It is a very good feeling knowing that a full summer of motoring is now at hand after the long winter.

We had a bit of a warm spell on Sunday, so I decided to add a Christmas present to my 82. The weather is nasty cold now so I'll have to wait to do more.

 Looks perfect! You have to see that emblem at the end of the hood to get the full experience. Now when we get another mild day, maybe you can tackle those weather strips.

The car can be in perfect shape,  but if the hood ornament's missing, it's hard to see past it (pardon the pun). It looks like a million bucks now!

Well, it's got a way to go before it looks like a million bucks.
 If you saw the interior you'd know what I meant. It's filthy and it needs a lot of work yet. It is solid as a rock though.

Nothing to the Caddy perse, but I put a carb and pcv valve on the 350 Rocket today. I also replaced the air filter and pcv valve filter on the Wildcat.

 All steps to the positive.

 Yesterday I put more coolant in the Brougham.

Before I put the Brougham away for the winter I had to put in a lot of tranny fluid. In the spring I'll need to track down the leak. I hope it's just the pan gasket.

There was a good sized dark spot on the ground under the car, although my driveway was by no means perfect before I put the caddy there.

 Could be just the pan gasket. That was pretty common with them.
