Its getting closer.......

So the winter months are coming to an end and spring is around the corner. I have been searching forums all over for ideas on what month people start to prepair the "summer" vehicles to come out of storage.

i have only found few and far between threads about it. So just wondering when folks on here plan on taking their "babies", their "summer rides" out of storage.

I personally would like to do it YESTERDAY, but the snow is still falling this morning and damn the amount of salt still on the roads.

So maybe late March, early April, even May? whats everyones ideas.

either way everyday is a day closer to being back in a truck for me!

First of May, or after the street sweepers have done there thing. Not too early, just in case.... this is Canada, mother nature has a sick sense of humor. We've had snow in May in Muskoka.

Don't take them out too soon.

I put my summer wheels on a little too early. These are from mid april one year.
Started to snow, and was basically a white out.

tried to take a turn and smoked a curb.

on May 1st and off the road Oct 31.
rounds it out nicely to 6months of insurance, I hate the historic plates too many damn restrictions to daily use.

I've seen snow many times in the first week of Nov, and same in late/mid April.

the 72 Bronc isn't too warm without doors and a bypassed heater core . I guess I should replace that heater core this year

[SIGPIC]
summer: RIP 72 Bronc, 68 Merc,
Daily:94 Exp xlt , Barney the PSD CW
projects: all on hold for now

That's not the tires fault, that's driving too fast for road conditions.

Must have been a pretty hard hit to bust a spoke like that. Ouch.

I never said it was.
Was doin about 30-40. Was slowing down to turn onto my street.
It's all down hill, hit a small patch of snow and WEE! Crash, bang, boom,

All the cars weight on that one wheel, also had to replace a front wheel bearing.
