    Wait a minute! I'm in the North Bay... don't drive your Mopar away! I'd look a little closer to home if the traffic and chaos are getting you down. Redding, Chico, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo come to mind, you can drive your car all year in any of them. California can drive you nuts, and it's falling apart, but I still wouldn't live anywhere else. Good luck in your quest!

    Jul and August get pretty hot here in Central FL so I drive it a little less then, but the rest of the year almost every weekend.

    We get to drive 'em year round here in Florida, and we don't have salt issues unless we're driving on the sand down at Daytona Beach, but we're sort of the opposite of northern drivers. Unless your car has AC, we can drive in the summer but that's a throwback experience we could all do without! :) Late Fall and Winter are the best times for driving old cars here since the temps are in the 60s-70s most of the time.

      Year round cruising with exception for rain/hurricanes could not ask for more playtime,but during the summer its sometimes brutaly hot/humid its unbearable [kinda ruins the fun factor].

      I hear ya! I love California and family and friends are here. I would jump at the chance to live and work in San Luis Obispo area again as I lived there for 3 yrs while attending Cal Poly. That's my favorite area of the state. There's just not much work there for engineering unless a hazardous job is landed at the power plant...OR...I can follow in the footsteps of a friend of mine who quit engineering and opened up his own brewery there - Creekside Brewery. He's not making tons of profit, but he's living the dream!

      and no salted roads there? I need to visit Tampa. I've heard good things.

      Yep, I lived in Birmingham, Alabama for 3 yrs and it was so humid and miserable in the summer and with rain all the time too.

      Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. About 6 months of the year for the old cars, and the rest of the year glad we have adopted front wheel drives or 4x4s. Wouldn't drive a rear wheel drive again in snow and ice unless I had too.

      Los angeles/SFV area is pretty much a drive whenever you want to town, but we had a couple weeks of 100+ weather, so unless you have AC....My belv doesnt so it sat in the driveway while I drove my Honda with AC. Oh and a few days a year we have some rain. I dont mind driving the old car in the rain but its the other idiots on the road that worry me
