Winter really didn't seem that bad this year. Part of this is due to the fact that I no longer have any fear of winter driving conditions and getting the car stuck somewhere. Part of this is also due to the relatively mild weather we've been enjoying. The fact that I've been pretty busy with work has also made time fly and made winter feel shorter.
There is not much going on car-wise. We went to the car show in January, but it was extremely busy, as we went on the weekend. The Saabaru has been reliable and had a couple of decent workouts in the two TSD rallies I attended with Josée.
I haven't done a single think to the Civic to prepare it for the upcoming track driving season, but, aside from fitting new tires and swapping on a few parts I have in my basement, there shouldn't be much to do to it before the first racing school in April.
The BMW should be coming out of hibernation in the next few weeks and the Saabaru will go into storage. I think this is the first time we've ever owned 3 cars at once, all functioning... here is a photo montage. The cars really couldn't be more different from each other!
As has been the case in other years, there are still cool cars roaming the streets, even though it's winter.
|Cool little Fiat-based camper|
|Cool grocery-getter (literally, spotted at the grocery store)|
|My favourite current M-car, parked on my street|
|A top choice for a winter car, rare colour|
|Never seen a Lambo in winter until now!|
|Another unexpected winter car|
|I have seen a couple of i8's on the road this winter as well|
