Just wondering if you guys/girls drive your cougars in the winter, or store them. What are your winter beaters if so. My cougar is my daily driver, so I drive it in the winter. My truck is my other car but with about 8mpg(not on the gas) I dont drive it.

Oh, and I am also Re-locating my battery to my truck and installing my titan intake next saturday. If anyone wants to help me out I will return the favor in the future. I am automotive literate except the wiring (like the relocation kit) so any help, if youve done yours or not, would be appreciated. Thanks

Well its not necessarily a winter beater but I'm driving the Jag I picked up off ebay last september. I got an awsome deal on it so I picked it up kind of as an investment for the winter. A friend of mine is buying it from me next month. I should make about $3-4k off the deal. Not bad for driving a jag for 5 months. Too bad all the money will be going toward a down payment on a house. I could get some nice upgrades for the cougar or a pimping car for the money I'll have left over. The Cougar has been stored since I picked the jag up.

I use my Cougar all year round, but then I have a heated underground parking space, with a car wash area near by to remove the layers of salt.

Well I completed my batter relocation and titan CAI intake and it sucked. I mean it probably would have taken me half the time if it was summer. Oh well. Routing the positive cable was much eisier than expected. I will post pics when It warms up and I clean it up.(which may not be for a while)

I like it. I kind of had to do a lot of ghetto rigging because the horn was in the way and stuff didnt fit like it was supposed to. But I can feel a difference in my low end.

Mine has never seen a winter, I just cant do it to the car. My winter ride is 95 Chevy Berretta. I was driving a 97 ford escort, but it dropped a valve a month after I bought it. What a way to flush a few grand down the toilet.
