Even if the weather's nice (and usually it's only a rare day in February
when I can put the top down), I won't take the B out unless it's recently
rained (to wash the salt off the road) or it's been a long time since a
snow and I have access to a car wash. Unless you're lucky enough (from a
classic car point of view) to live in a place where they don't salt the
roads, the salt you get by taking the B for a drive to a ski mountain is
deadly. If you must, make it a point to wash the car down thoroughly, with
great care to include the underside. Otherwise you'll rust the poor thing
out in no time.
