Are there any classic car clubs in the Fort Drum area?

Here's a few, but you'll need to check these sites out and uncover the information you're looking for: hemmings dot com, buggiesunlimited dot com, seqc dot net, car-clubs dot info, nnycars dot com, and that's about all I could find which looked worthwhile. Hope you find what you're looking for!

Do NOT drive a classic or antique car on the roads in the North Country in the Winter because the salt they use on the roads there will destroy it faster than you would ever imagine.

Yes, my first winter here and I had surface rust appearing in spots and my husband scolded me for not taking care of my vehicle. We have a 64 Fairlane that never sees the light of day from October thru May.

I don't have a classic car but I would still like to protect my car during the winter. I'm probably going to get an apartment without a garage so is there any other way to keep the car safe from the winter elements? Storage perhaps?

What kind of classic car club do you want? Muscle cars, older American cars, European cars, specific models? There are Miata, MG, Jag, Porsche, Classic (American) clubs in CNY.

Storage would be a good idea for the winter.

Try a good undercoating job Winter driving is a hazard of living in the snowbelts of Upstate NY, but it beats being destroyed in hurricanes in the southeast or ripped to shreds by tornadoes in the Midwest/Plains. The hazards of life are considerably less around here when you analyze it...but yeah your car's body may be shot a few years faster than it would be down south. It's just the trade-off for living in our beautiful climate of four unique seasons.

I can see keeping a valuable classic car under wraps, but just get a pickup with a plow for regular driving during the Winter.
