So as the winter approaches in New England, I put the Bandit away today until Spring.. always a sad time. Completed 45000 miles and 7 years since bringing Bandit home in May 06. Can't wait for the spring of 2014.
No on both. No need to put cars on jack stands these days. Mine sits for 5 months straight and never have any flat spots. Starting the car once in a while is not good for the car either. If you can get out and drive it for a couple of hours that is ok but just letting the car sit and idle is a bad idea. That puts condesation in the oil and water in the exhaust system.Yeah, from what I hear, it's really nasty for some of you guys up north. I have relatives in Omaha and Chicago and have heard of some of the blizzards. I'm not sure if I could handle being stuck in my house for 3 weeks. I'd probably kill someone. Been to Hartford a long time ago too but it don't really remember. I was 3. so do you guys do the whole winterize thing for parked vehicles? what about putting the car on jack stands. And do you start it once a month or just let it sit?
