Thank you very much for your service, Tom. Good luck.

The only problem I have had with leaving a car outside for extended periods was a minor musty smell from the freeze/thaw/condensation cycles. Your car should be fine. But, it definitely is better if someone could start it and warm it up every 6 weeks or so...

good luck tom! thanks for putting it on the line for all of us!

if it snows a lot all at once, might be a good idea to have someone clear the snow off so you don't come back to a rippled roof or hood. other then that i'd unhook the battery, air the tires up to 40 or 45 and call it good.
