These are all all good reasons to move South and drive the call all year long. LOL One thought about putting the jack stands under the car while stored for any long period of time. From my dirt open wheel and stock car days we always put the car on stands to keep the pressure off the springs since they were aftermarket and for specific poundage. If you're running aftermarket heavier or lighter springs, etc, it might be worth while to miminize any spring rate change over time. Just my couple pennies worth.
