I have had year round verts in the past. Don't scrape the roof with anything but your gloves, or throw a car cover on the nights that the snow is significant. As for keeping the interior warm, run the heater, keep the windows and roof closed.

Good advice from Bopper.

Get yourself a blue plastic painter's tarp (8x10) and some bungee cords as a car cover. Don't let too much snow accumulate (that is, don't let a foot of snow or more accumulate) because it can get heavy and stretch the fabric. I see that around Boston where someone will let their Jeep sit all winter in the city with 2 feet of heavy snow on the rag top. In the springtime, the car has a sagging roof.

I'm from Edmonton and I am fortunate not to have to drive my vert n the winter....you better have some darn good snow tires...our roads are darn slippery . I would put a good protectant on the top.You can buy them on eBay...cleaner+protectant.....i also saw it at freedom ford some time ago.Do you have a garage? You might want to invest in a good quality car cover.I wouldn't want a rear drive vert in our icy snowy winters.Good luck.is it a Gt? Post some pics

Saw your pic in your profile .see you have a pro charger....that's a lot of power to the rear wheels for our icy streets...be careful
