I like the SHO.

My Camaro has summer tires on it, I could probably make it 10 feet then slide into a pole.

It's not that I can't drive it in the winter, I drove it last winter but it was very mild snow/ice wise. I just don't want to risk crashing it, of if someone hit me and I had no other vehicle, I would be screwed.

250k on ranger runs like new. dose not look like it though.
200sumthing k on escort wagon runs like new great body.
100k on f150 runs like new. we tow the boat with.

I'd say get a 4 cylinder 93-97 ford probe. I would have said the cobalt ss or gtp, but since it's a winter car, i'd imagine you don't want lots of power at low end. maybe a turbo fwd eclipse/laser/talon if you're looking for power, but good behaving on the snow. I thought the 93-97 ford probe was an awesome car for the handling & braking factor. I've never driven a car that handled as good as they do stock.

If it's something you might end up wrecking, i'd say just look for something that there are lots of in the junkyard for spare parts if you wreck.

They aren't very bad winters, just lots of hills so torque is good.

I saw these and I liked them,

Looks nice, quick, and could have some potential.
