Winter Storage

I started keeping my S3 in an unheated car tent over the winter here in Connecticut last year. Should I be concerned with the temperature fluctuations, which can swing from zero to fifty degrees F, affecting the wood dash? Has anyone found a good way to get some heat around their car?

Thanks,
Jon Eckman

Build a garage, insulate and heat it.

To all,

If you were to pay to keep your car in a climate controlled facility for the
winter or even all year long, what would it be worth to you?

What would you be willing to pay for storage?

Curious to know,

Briggs Pletcher

How about one of those heaters they use in pianos?

What's this snow you talke of? ;) Here in Texas humidity is the
problem. If not air conditioned at least a de-humidifier would be nice

Hmmm, spending money to lease storage...I guess if I couldn't use the
lease against taxes I would have to weigh the time frame considered to
compare with the building (or converting to) a dedicated storage.

In my situation, rural with acreage, I would build additional space.
Good support from the home helps. Once, my lovely wife suggested
keeping a vintage BMW R50/2 in the beadroom because she thought it
looked cool, but would she let me park the Laverda SFC race bike there?
No way. She might go for the Elan though I'd have to make a bigger door
and a driveway around the garden and... be easier to add on to the
workshop ;)
