That's roughly what I'd want for a garage/shop, but I certainly wouldn't just have one car in it.

The weekend was even more fun than hillclimbs usually are, I had plenty of competition in my class and drove better than I have all season. There is still plenty of room for improvement, but I am pretty satisfied with how this weekend went.

I definitely owe a big thanks to all my superb support as well, from my girlfriend to the awesome ladies who came out to volunteer as safety workers to Bill, who really made sure everything came together before the event. I've managed to surround myself with exceptional people. Life really is good.

The Mt Burke hillclimb was incredible, and I tore down almost 10 seconds from my previous best time! If you're interested in coming out and seeing what our event are like, consider volunteering as a safety worker at Mt Ascutney II on Sept 13-14.

When I can't see the roof any more, I'll consider a bigger car ... or I'll just keep shoveling until I can see the roof again.

The biggest downside I see to having a sports car as a daily driver through winter is that I can't see through the snow banks when pulling out from stop signs.
 
With all the snow we've been getting here in New England, I've been getting a lot of funny looks when I pull in to work in my Miata daily driver. Whatever you drive, remember that 4WD is not a 'winter safety feature.'

"Four-wheel drive may help you go better in the snow, but it won’t help you stop better, or keep you from skidding. Don’t let your four-by-four make you overconfident!" - http://www.rma.org/tire-safety/seasonal-driving-tips/winter-driving-tips/

Always friendly, always extremely tasty. Look for parking one street over on Central St. If you're looking for hot/spicy food, you'll have to ask for it specifically but you won't be disappointed. Otherwise, just order off the menu: It's all good food. The only thing that could make it better would be some live music on some nights.

This is one of my new favorites. If you stop in, try their custom bakery items (pineapple muffins are a superb idea) and expect your coffee to stay hot and full throughout your visit. I haven't been disappointed after a half dozen visits, and that's one of the most important things a diner can do.
