I shuffled it and the rest of the fleet around in the garage/driveway after tucking everything away for the last storm.

Watched a woman in a Kia Rondo get a flat in front of my house. She ended up about 4 houses down pulled over. Walked down to offer help but she said "I don't need help from no man, thank you." Suit yourself, lady. It's a balmy 9 degrees out and I was gonna offer to pull it into my shop.

Tow truck came an hour later. rofl

Drove the '91 around the new 'hood yesterday. I had to take it out of the garage so I could remove the massive amount of junk that was surrounding it, so I figured I may as well warm it up.

I ended up gaining 4' of room in the garage by the time it was all said and done.

Looking for a PCV grommet that lasts more than a year. This one has good reviews:

Twice the price of a Dorman, but it's not a Dorman.

E-code lights w/ relays, LEDs w/ switchbacks, 15x8 Ansen slots w/ 255/60 BFG's, Kenwood stereo, various hacks.
This, of course, was merely the semi-delirious notion of a fever-patient, but I remember that it struck me at the time as being eminently practical and feasible.

Renewed the tags. Was gonna wash the blood off the engine (it's not a project til you bleed on it, right?) but it's too damn cold, half an inch of ice on the car.

Hardwired a battery maintainer to it, and wired in a 5 amp fuse cause I don't want my car and house to burn down.
Also got a smoke detector for the garage and a listener/reporter for the home alarm, so if the detector goes off then I will get an alert and worse case the alarm company will send out the fire dept automatically.
