my brother had a tr3; his only car, when he was stationed at some base in 
massachusetts.  we lived in philadelphia.  I remember him heading back to 
the base one winter evening, full winter clothing including ski gloves, 
inside the car.

While working with my side curtains I've been impressed by how sloppy the 
ones fit as well as how hard it is to get a good tight fit on re-built ones.
It made me wonder about how many brand new tr-3's were daily drivers back 
throughout the whole year including winter especially in the midwest.
I can't
imagine a tr-3 even all buttoned up sitting outside during a midwest winter.
Rain mostly comes straight down but blowing snow could sift through the
smallest opening and cover the whole inside; then melt.  Imagine 3 day white
out blizzards with 25-30 mile winds!
Anyone have these type of experiences?
