I know all you northerners are used to this kind of weather, but us people in Houston aren't. I could either drive the truck with no heater and Hoosier street slicks or the Vette, the poor Vette lost.

Good choice. Chevys are expendable.

Get all the nasty weather out of the way as we are coming down in a month and driving instead of flying. Can't wait to get to Captain Bennys and wolf down some oysters.

In the northland, I keep my Corvette in a heated garage all winter and drive my 2018 Expedition because the heater and A/C in the Corvette went south.

I think you made the right choice..... fiberglass doesn't rust, old Ford iron does.

You were worried about no heater? Try no windows in 12℉ weather. But I had to see how it did on snow and ice. A short up and down the our road but my sinuses were starting to hurt. 😱 But the truck did quite well with smooth power and control on my icy hill. Then back into the warm garage to finish uo wiring to rear lights.

I think he said "no heater", not that there was a heater that's broken. My truck came from Texas and it's never had a heater. Probably won't be driving it much in the winter in New England.
