Depends. Some years, next to none. Others, several feet a month.

I wouldn't worry about plowing snow with coilovers. You'll get the body or exhaust stuck on something before the nose.

If you crank the springs all the way down and use a 17-18" wheel, there's a good deal of clearance. With the 15's, not so much.

I store both, a 165 and a 185 for the winter. A daily dip in a highly concentrated saline solution over a 5 month period is cruel and unusual punishment for these oldtimers.

I have my Celica in storage just because it isnt up to snuff right now, But I have a 2000 sunfire automatic for a beater, as long as the e brake in that still works I'm doing fine.
I do want to know if I should undercoat my Celica, I'm in Iowa and the salt and snow, and sand wear out a car fast. Plus I live on 1/2 mile of gravel. Plus I am about to move out for college, not much money on my hands. Any suggestions?
Getting a truck is fun, make sure it has 4 wheel drive otherwise its just like driving another car. So many guys I have passed that they didnt have 4wd, and I did. Until Later.
