Winter coming soon

As you guys all know winter is coming really soon and I'd like to know if it's good or not to store my prelude into an old barn at cold temperature?

Re: Winter coming soon

it's the same as storing it outside in winter lol


Honestly - the only thing I would be worried about being in an old barn is if it were to collapse....or finding that mice have eaten through the car/ poo'd everywhere....


I keep mine outside under a cover all winter (it's all i have to work with) but i start it up at least once a week or every 2. Don't leave a good set of tires on the car if it's staying parked, you don't want them to dry-rot.

Re: Winter coming soon

If you do, then put it on jackstands so the tires don't dry dot on the bottoms, and makes it harder for critters to get into the engine bay.

Mice can walk up walls, jackstands won't stop them from getting in lol. only option would be to put the glue-type mouse traps around the jackstands. Still no stopping the squirrels though.


I hope the mentioned barn as no issues with flooding, something else to consider.

Sweet, I thought cold and humidity was bad for the car but if you guys say it's okay then I'll store my car there. Now I need to think about the mice xD
