I have a 2002 Spyder that was stored in my garage for the winter. We tried to push it out of the garage because it needs a jump and the car won't move. It's stuck. Why?

If you garage wasn't heated and exposed to the elements, your brake shoes or pads are probably rusted to the rotors or drums.

I agree with Tom. My wife's 2003 spyder does the same when parked for a week or two specially in damp weather. They typically free up when you start to drive the car. Might want to jack car up and see which one or ones are locked up. Hers is normally the front disks. The pads seize to the rotors.
