I live in MN where the winters can hit sub zero. Would my 360 be okay thru winter or should i send her away to storage facility. I think i would miss her too much. Anyone have a non heated garage that can chime in? I plan to run the engine couple times a week but is that enough to keep the car functioning til i drive it in spring? Please tell me the F car is tough enough for MN.
Your car will be fine in an unheated garage. Just take proper precautions to "winterize" her for storage, and you'll be in good shape. There are many threads on what to do for this process, it's relatively simple.
Also, I'm willing to wager that there are many threads on the "starting and running" versus "not starting at all" action during the storage period. Personally, I do NOT (and have never) started any cars or let them run during the storage period. Never had any problems. Once they're put away, they don't get started again until they're ready for their first drive after being "summer-ized."
People will chime in to discuss the opposite. After you have read the research, make your own decision. But, I think you should keep her home rather than sending her away. The risks of having her OUT of your control would, in my opinion, outweigh the risks of leaving her in an unheated garage.
I guess I should say I've sent cars away for winter storage before.....
To my parents' garage where the space is larger and more readily available! They don't charge me rent or the cost of the electricity to keep the battery tenders on!
