'91 Tbird won't start when wet

My '91 Tbird has been in excellent shape until last winter when it sat in the driveway for 6 months. Now it doesn't start after it has rained, but starts right away on sunny days. Any suggestions on what I should try to look at first would be greatly appreciated!

Re: '91 Tbird won't start when wet

try checking your wiring. there's a possiblity that you have a frayed or corroded wire and the moisture is stoping the power from gettin anywhere. i had a similar problem with my 89 topaz and 83 s-10 blazer. more info would help tho, like, is the car just not doing anything or is it begining to engage the starter and than dieing out?

After sitting that long do a total service, plugs/wires/rotor, all fluids then taker her out and stomp on it. You may also want to get some good carb cleaner.

Any car that sits that long is going to run like crap.
