Guess I'll be joinin' you fellas workin' out in the cold shortly. Moving from a house with a big 2-car garage and a nice, toasty-warm drive-in basement into a little place with an open carport and a small unheated shop about big enough for a Lotus 7.

 

Soon as I'm settled I've gotta do a head-gasket on a friend's PT Cruiser, pull the engine out of the 911 to fix a pulled head stud, finish the engine rebuild on the Spyder, and do timing-belt, water pump and seals on an old MR-2 (plus troubleshoot the electrics to see why she won't start after sitting for 3 years).

 

Brrrrr. And wet if the recent weather is anything to go by.

Back in the 60's I had to fix the heater in my first car outside because I couldn't afford the $25 or maybe it was $45 for a shop to take it out and fix it. I got lucky as one of the vacuum hoses came loose that controlled the damper. Yay!
