Don't forget about all the traction control goodies and the safety of your car either.
My opinion on winter beaters is that they have to just as safe if not safer than the car you're storing. There are a lot of idiots out there and it doesn't matter how well you drive. If I get hit by someone I want to be protected. Cars can always be replaced. People can't.
