My own Garage. I drive my car's all year long so don't really need storage per say. Weather here is not anything like you have up there in Canada, but it still does get cold. Lowest we see here is usually in lower teens (Maybe) and we do have some snow. Once again nothing like you guys have.

I simply would not trust my car's anywhere but under my own protection. Enough can go wrong that way, no sense pushing the envelope.....

I store my 56 in my 3 car attached garage below a 1931 ford that rest the winters on a lift. Garage has heat and AC.

Right now mine is stored in my non-heated garage/workshop. I think by next winter it will be heated.

I don't really.. store.. my car.

It has a REAL good heater.. and when I get a good set of tires there's no reason why it couldn't ride out during the dead of winter so long as there's no snow on the ground. I tried backing it out one day last Feb. but 1 tire caught ice and it wouldn't move. My driveway holds ice a lot longer than the pavement up by the road.

it lives in my garage though.. not insulated yet.. but closed off.

For the past 4 years I had to store my '56 in a barn beacuse I didn't have a garage to store it in anymore. (long story, rough period in my life) At least the barn had a concrete floor and was surrounded by other classic cars. Last year I had a camaro and a nova parked next to my '56. I sure am glad to have a garage/workshop back again. :happy0030:

Shooter be carefull storing in a sea can.. my son in law bought one for storing his Harley .. wished he had not .. they are so air tight , with no air movement it corroded worse than covering with a tarp outside .. they really need vents ..JMHO...
