SO I store my MX6 for the winter. But last winter, due to work and school obligations, I actually didn't get to store it until mid-January, which means it (unfortunately) went through at least one massive winter storm. Here it is:

As it started snowing, the night before


Unfortunately, I had to go to work, so I had to dig myself out.















I believe I got about a block away from my house before I said 'screw it' and turned back. :D

Here is a picture I took and emailed to my prof as an excuse for why I couldn't hand in an essay on time :angel:

Oh Wow,

Awesome fotos.:)

Reminds me off my friend Claire ploughing the snow in her Suzuki when I was over there in Wisconsin during the winter of 2004/05.

Lol, yeah, since I don't keep my car out in the winter, the tires u see in the picture are bald all-seasons, so I wouldn't be doing too well. Great for drifting around for fun though! :D

Yup, that was the year for that...although, it was a lil annoying that after putting up with all that snow, we came just short of breaking the record.

dude.... like where im from if u get even fluries school gets canceled...... dang... no wonder i never see any slammed canadian mx6's they would get burried!
slammed cars are everywheres, its called laying it up for the winter.

Couldnt get into my car this am. Bunch of snow. Door cylinders locked and then from trying to get in, the cylinder let go and is now in the middle of the door. My passenger door cant be opened cause the lock is broken and is so frozen cant be unlocked from the interior. The trunk is also broken, so i had to break into my own car to get in.

Frozen from 2 hours in the cold weather to get into the 6 + a flat head screw driver = getting in the trunk. :tdown:

read the first post about the wedge and the tow truck, when this happens there is no wedging thatll work lol so theres no point, and im not wasting money on a kit when a hanger does just fine :p
