Re: winter storage
With mine i just add fuel stabilizer to a full tank of gas. I also use tinfoil to make a little cup that I put mothballs in, and lay then around the car, in the back (El Camino), and sitting on the inner fenders. Then a rag in the tailpipe and that's all that I do.
I know a lot of people like to start the car a couple times over the winter. I don't with mine. After sitting for a while, the oil will have mostly ran down, Although it wont be fatal to a motor, I cant imagine a couple low oil pressure starts every year are good for it. As well heating up the cold exhuast pipe(s) will cause condesation in the exhuast. That is why I don't bother starting mine during the winter. Although that is just me, some people may entirely disagree with me.
EDIT: Also, the Last two years I have stored my car with a good quality car cover on it, I am still undecided about it this year however because of a recent paint job.
