Kind of off topic but that building in the background looks really familiar. Where is that?

I thought it looked familiar as well. I am from Syracuse and I am up on the hill frequently.

I'm told my IAC has pooped it, and as such takes a few tries to start on cold mornings. Other than that, nothing. Runs fine. I haven't even had the door refuse to shut this season, which it has done every winter since I bought the car.

Though it rides like the wheels are made of bricks when the temps are below zero.

Winter Bull Issues

My car has been starting fine but runs a little rough while warming up... My biggest issue happened last night when I hit some ice then debris in the road and blew out my tire going 50 mph.

Ouch! Hope everything's okay.

Were they pretty new, or were you planning on replacing them soon anyway?

Silicone those door gaskets, turns frozen stuck doors to just sticking a little.
All my vehicles sound real bad on those -20 start ups in the Adirondacks.
First time I had sub zero starts I was wondering if I was gonna get home. LOL
