Be sure to keep the snow off the roof. I'd hate for the whole thing to collapse...

Yup I put plywood on the top to make it more sturdy,and not sag when it snows. And of coarse I will be sweeping excess snow off every day. thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup

dude those things will get picked up in the wind, if you have a pipe cutter cut the thing down, so its right over your celica, and also throw a car cover over your car...

and then put sand bags or something on the edges so it wont let anything get up underneeath, aka animals...

It's not a good idea to leave the car on the ground. Moisture from the ground will cause rust.
You can buy concrete block from Home Depot and place underneath.
Lift the car up on a jackstand, so your tires will not have flat spot.

Car storage tips - trawled from the net smile

1. Protect your fuel system. To keep the gas fresh and the system safe, add a container of fuel stabilizer to the gas tank, and fill the tank to the top right before putting the vehicle into storage. Take the car for a brief drive before putting it in the garage so the stabilized fuel will circulate throughout the system.

2. Drain the cooling system (including the radiator) and refill it with a rust-inhibiting antifreeze.

3. Change the oil and filter. Make sure the oil contains corrosion protection.

4. Hook up a battery charger/maintainer to keep the battery alive.

5. Protect your tires. If you cant store the vehicle up on jack stands and dont want to remove the wheels and tires, let some air out of the tires to reduce strain on the shocks and other suspension components.

6. Protect the paint. Give the vehicle a good end-of-season washing, dry it thoroughly and apply a protective coat of wax. Cover the car with a breathable cloth cover (plastic covers will trap condensation and provide a fertile breeding ground for rust).

7. Protect vinyl, leather and rubber. If the vehicle will be stored in a dry climate, it's wise to apply a preservative to prevent seats, armrests and dash pads from cracking. Likewise, a good coat of rust inhibitor applied to unpainted metal surfaces will prevent rust.

8. Provide critter protection. All kinds of small animals find vehicle wiring, seats and carpet delectable, and they think cars and trucks make a nice den, too. To keep critters out, place mothballs inside a vehicle, including under the dash, and cover the tailpipe. Or, for total protection, store the vehicle inside a cocoon that seals it completely from the elements.

9. Check your insurance and be sure your car is covered!
