    Great huh? Unseasonably warm day, Christmas Eve so I take out of the office early... get home and what do I decide to do?

    Wheel the Mazda out of storage in my garage and give it a nice hand wash.. lord knows how dirty it got in the garage the last 3 weeks....

    Damn I hate winter... I really don't know what to do with my self... I just go back to the old standbys...

    Hehe.. that was the other part... you can't just start a rotary and then shut it off... you have to let it come up to temperature... so I had to take it for a run down the road and back... past the RCMP station... in my bright blue sports car with no insurance on it.... ooops...

    Reason number 2 for not having fancy schmancy cars! :) (Okay, so I'm a little green. :) )

    Sweet driving day today though. Both windows down and the sunroof open driving in a t-shirt with no heat... On Christmas Eve. Holy crap. :) Made me wish I had better tires on though. The snows just don't make for fun driving. (Tread squirm can be fun in its own way though. :) )

    Hope your motor runs well with H20 in the spring :D

    The SiR gets a topped up tank + fuel stabilizer when she sits for the winter!

    Yep.
    I changed the oil and filled the tank with stabilized fuel before I put the car in the garage.

    I hear you.
    My 'Teg is sooo gutless, first time I drove the RX-8 on cold roads after driving the 'Teg for a couple weeks (when I took the 8 down for it's oil change) I used WAY to much throttle and had the thing fishtailing down Portland St. :D
