I was all ready to start using it again. Finally the salt was off the roads and the blacktop was dry. Then, to my surprise we got hit with a March snowstorm. Its been so cold that the snow and ice hasn't melted and the streets are very sloppy and messy. I haven't had the S out of the garage since the end of December. No miles in January, February or March so far. I'm hoping for April but if this crazy weather continues it just might be until the middle of May.

Mid October, like you will probably be out again for Memorial Day in May.

I had mine out in February when we had a few extremely warm days but it is back in the garage waiting for me to put the OEM exhaust back on.

Had a nice top-down drive about 10 days ago before the cold snap. Hoping for another one next week (drive that is).

Had it out last month. I'm driving the NSX all this weekend because my daughter asked if we could. It's cold so I'm taking it a bit easy in corners, but the roads are clear.

I drove mine four days ago to the hospital I volunteer at and then to my tax appointment. I filled the gas tank on the way home at Costco with 91 octane at $2.999/gallon. It was in the high 70s and I had the top down the last 9 miles.

Two days ago (Friday) I got to ride in Gary's (skunkworks) S2000 when he kindly picked me up at Denver airport and showed me around a bit before dropping me off at my son's house in Niwot. I think it was in the 60s while he drove top down. Perfect.

Garage? What garage?

The S is still under cover, hasn't been out since early November. Plans are to remove cover early April to take it to the body shop for some bumper repair. Road debris encountered on our way back from NC did a little damage.
