Wintering Car?

What should be done to "winterize" my car? I don't plan to drive it once winter really sinks in, and won't thereafter for probably a couple months until Spring.

Maybe buy a battery tender. Keep the tires fully inflated and run a bottle of fuel injector cleaner beforehand.

Good advice here....fill the tank with gas, maybe a bottle of Sta-Bil, too....and give the tires an extra 6 or 7 lbs. of pressure so there`s less chance of flat-spotting. Just leave a note on the dash to readjust the tire pressure before driving off.
