this is the first time ive ever had a place without a garage were i could keep a car warm when its so cold out, and the only other car me and my gf have right now is my twin turbo camaro, well im deff not driving that in the snow.
really need to get off my butt and install the new clutch in the silverado so we have that to drive, that alredy has a block heater on it so i know that thing would start up
