Cool Winter Storage

Well here in Calgary, Alberta Canada our fall weather is fast turning to winter as the indicators are here. Snow is on the Rocky Mountains already ( wonderful in the sun )the ski resorts opening with recorded snowfall and below zero at night.

This is the time to put the ladies ( 58/60 )away for their winter hibernation and tuck them in. Stabil/ check , dryer sheets/ check, trickle charger/ check and car covers to keep them happy

See the ladies in the spring for a chooch

As you go through your check list in prep for winter storage, this is a perfect time to add 2 drops of oil to the cup on the side of your distributor. This is often overlooked and only takes a couple of seconds to do.

Enjoy the snow and skiing, but I will take my beaches and palm trees!

My daughters and "their" cars when I'm done havin' fun!

Cool

Joe great pixs of your girls and the other ladies.

What do you mean add 2 drops of oil to the cup on the side of your distributor and what purpose does it do over the winter?

No real advantage to do so prior to winter storage except that this lube point is often overlooked. I think Ford recommends a drop or two every 5000 miles but since most of these cars are driven very little, this is often overlooked and not done at all. When storing a car for winter most people have a checklist or do a few things in preparation for storage. This is just a good opportunity to make sure it gets done at least once a year.
