As far as storage goes, maybe cold is better. The battery will
self-discharge slower, the gasoline will keep better, the steel will rust
slower, the rubber and vinyl will age slower, etc. There was a PBS show
about some rare WWII bomber that was abandoned up in the artic circle
somewhere. It was in amazingly good shape due to the cold.
