|david-b||One last question my bro asked me... what about the exhaust? Do the tailpipes have to be closed off? Or does it matter? Thanks|

I usually run mine out of gas in October and put in fresh oil just to get the acidic oil out. I generally disconnect the battery and forget about it until April or May, whenever the weather breaks. Fresh fuel in the spring and I am off.

How exactly would the carb be sealed up?

|T-bucket23||Unless you are going to start it and run it long enough at operating temperature to get rid of the condensation in the engine, you will be doing more harm than good by starting it. In most cases it is better to park it in the fall and leave it alone until spring. If it is going to be outside covered up. I would seal up the carb, breathers etc to keep moisture rodents, etc out. Drain the fuel out and run the carb dry. Check or change the antifreeze and change the oil if it is due.|

It's coming around to that time very quickly. This is the first winter of having the car in one piece, and looking on how to winterize it. Car is going to be garage kept in Chicago and kept under a wrap. I ideally would like to start it at least once a month and let warm up, but I'm sure it will slip some months.
So what all needs to be done in order to keep her in great shape for next spring? Are fuel & oil stabilizers worth it? Any suggestions on what you guys do? Thanks a lot.
