I can't remember a winter like this. Maybe I just haven't been around long enough, but I never remembered there being snow this late in February, and it was always like 35-40 degrees around this time too. I like the winter, but I'm tired of it now. I have stuff to do with my car.

On a different note, I might be getting a hold of a '90 SC sometime soon, and will also have a semi low mile '94 4.6 and a 99 4R70W available. If you guys want anything from the SC besides the seats, 5-speed parts, and rear bumper cover, you've got first dibs. Same thing on the motor and tranny. I'll post it in here when they become available.

Must be all the "global warming".

Heh, yeah. In November and a lot of December, it was still like 50 degrees out. Now it just won't warm up. What a joke. We're supposed to get another 3 inches of snow tonight, too. :rolleyes:

I'm with you, Slo. I remember better than 'average' temps around mid-to-late February as well. This winter hasn't been steadily brutal, but the rate of temperature changes and snow versus non-snow conditions has been extremely unnerving. 30º one day and 17º the next, over and over, has wreaked havoc on my immune system.

How's your list of cold-weather car repairs been? Mine's included a DPFE sensor and EGR vacuum solenoid on a day where the high temperature was 16º - never mind the windchill factor, and a master cylinder/brake fluid reservoir replacement and brake bleeding. I replaced the power antenna with an aftermarket one on a warmer day, but the final wiring was completed on a snowy day. Handwashing the car in 22º-28º temps is always fun, too, not to mention mopping up 2 quarts of oil from knocking over the container after doing an oil change! :leftright

I take mine to an automatic car wash--I'm not tough enough to wash it outside by hand. So far this winter, I've:

Removed a burned-out tranny and replaced it with a new one,
Installed new rear shocks,
Replaced both front bearings,
And replaced my 18" wheels with 15" wheels with snow tires.

Cold weather sucks when things break on your car.

Nah, there's a guy on SCCoA in Adrian who has one for sale. I'm going to pick it up as soon as I sell off some parts.
