Stabil fuel stabilizer and disconnect the battery or connect it to a float (NOT TRICKLE) charger. If your other fluids are good, that should be it. That's all is do and it's worked for the last two years. You might want to put some 1/2" plywood under the tires to keep them from rotting.

even if you store your vette its still a good idea to start it about every two weeks,and take it for a quick ride if weather permits.

yeah start it up and back it into the drive way... let it warm up and rev it a bit... always a good practice to keep the gaskets from drying out (although that shouldnt happen over a winter...) still be safe with it...

if you're not going to move it anywhere, I've been told an oil change before you park it is a good idea
