MG MT here. Put it away just before the first snowfall. Hoping to get it back on the road next month - at least part time. Not afraid of driving with winter tires, just wanted to avoid the salt.
Nice! What part of WI?
I've never seen another SS in the wild, only at dealers. Had an 1100 mile road trip in Sept to Detroit and northern lower MI; saw a couple G8s around Detroit, a GTO up north, an elderly man with a bushy white beard driving a smart fortwo with Korean war vet plates (how's that for 1 of 1) on I-94 near Jackson ... but not one SS.
Just a hop across the river here! Mahtomedi MN. Yes I've been winter driving on Blizzaks. What part of WI?
I don't have one yet, but have been seriously considering it. I've seen one parked at Badger Alloys in Milwaukee off of state street, otherwise, I haven't seen any out and about either.
I'm just across the St. Croix river from the Twin Cities. The only other SS I've seen in the wild is another '14 SIM just like mine that had came to the dealership for service. I looked at the address of the owner and was very surprised it was someone who lives within 5 miles of me. The bad part was I didn't get to meet or even see the owner and it hasn't been back since.
These cars are like ghosts - when you think you're seeing one, by the time you can turn your head for the double look-see, it's gone!
As for driving mine in the winter - no way - I remember Tonto telling Kemo Sabe, "Salt makes for rusty barrel, silver bullet not shoot straight then."
Did you check the owners map? ;-)
Exactly my thoughts!Have been SS-ing in and around Appleton since mid-June. Hate the salt, but love this car too much not to drive it every day!
that didn't work so well... let's try this instead
I'm in Johnson Creek, WI. Checkout the the owners map that GXPaycheck is talking about.
Cars & Coffee in Lake Mills starts in May!!
That's a big fat negative to driving the SS in the winter. I bought a 04 BMW 325Xi as a winter beater in September.
Here ya go. PM GXPaycheck and give him your SS's year, trans, trim level and you zip code. He'll mark you on the map.I can't figure out how to get on that owners map, and can't find links to it (unless it is the one posted earlier in this thread, in which case, I must not be on it. I would love to make it to cars and coffee! We'll see how work and school play out, now that I've started grad school.
