Spring is supposed to be a happy time. Not only does the snow melt – at least in my part of the world – but the warm temperatures and clear roads mean that enthusiasts start to bring their cars out of hibernation. One week ago I made a special trip to the top secret location where my Mazda Miata rode out the snowy months in blissful slumber, intent on breaking it out from under its car cover.
One of the things I enjoy most about the Miata is that it doesn’t have a roof. Well, it does have one, of sorts – it’s made of fabric and plastic – but it is almost never raised on my car, except when it has to be stored for an extended period.
This week I finally faced up to reality and put the Miata away for its first winter sleep in my care. While I know that many Miata-ites are comfortable strapping on a hard top and tackling the snow and ice without a second thought, I am not willing to deal with the eventual corrosion issues that Canadian winters would visit on my track car.
