In addition to what you do:

I lay one of those blue plastic tarps on the garage floor before I pull the
car in, this will prevent moisture from collecting under the car due to
condensation on the concrete.

I also place the car on jack stands, allowing the springs to hang and  to
keep the tires from flatspotting.

Make sure you warm it up on occasion, drive it if it's nice. Top down is
optional  :)


Is it that time of year already???
