A car woke up from its slumber and so will a dormant thread.

This resilient little B fired up on first crank as soon as I hooked up the battery. Never mind the vented tank 3/4 full of 5 month old E85. It didn't even hiccup the whole way home or to work this morning.

I think I need to find a new storage location though.
All this corrosion is the last straw. Last year it was mice chewing up the GN's spark plug wires. Who knows what will happen next time. I'm not taking the risk.

To be fair, a lot of this will wipe off with a rag. It's just disappointing to see what a few months in a non-climate controlled space will do. We also discovered that the roof isn't exactly water tight anymore either, so it might as well have been outside. I really don't have the space to own and maintain two toys year-round. I have been looking for new properties with shops, but this really isn't the greatest time for the wife and I to pack up and move. We have a lot on our plates, and our current house is otherwise serving it's purpose. The cars will just have to share the garage without major repairs or upgrades for a while.
Now to address the elephant in the room. Why am I pulling my car from storage when there's still some snow on the ground?
It was never really about that. I just need a place off-site to park for the winter while I work on the other car. I'd rather store both of my cars in my heated two-car garage, but it doesn't work like that when I have to buzz in some floor pans or do a head swap! The Camaro is home so that it can donate its EV1 injectors to the GN. Besides, REAL spring is right around the corner! The Camaro will get the old EV6 injectors back since they work fine. After that I have a lot of plans for this car, but I think it's going to be a light year for updates while I replenish funds. The GN ate all my fun money!
