Driving?
 
So, who in Ohio is enjoying this white stuff? I'm still driving the mustang because it's what I have. I wish I could wash it though. Kinda depressed about that.

BRING ON SPRING!

This guy
Dedicated set of winter wheels though, so no problems. Honestly the car handles snow just fine with a bit of weight in the trunk and good tires.

Not I.... My car is in the garage, and I'm in Florida. Sorry guys, but I had to get away from this weather.

mines been sitting in the garage. The poor F150 gets all the daily driving and it is plum nasty with salt. Top Cat I was just down there for a few days a couple of weeks ago wished I could have stayed.

Unfortunately mine and my dads are daily drivers! Hopefully by next winter he will have another daily and ill have my GT by then, that will be stored in a unit, until Florida for college! Lol

I love DDing my 'Stang in the winter! "Hands free" turning, donuts without tearing up your tires...it's awesome!

I'm daily driving mine in PA on the stock Pirelli all seasons. They aren't too good in the snow. The car is covered in salt too. spring can't come soon enough.

GHJA614 01-28-2014 08:28 AM

Ya thats what I cant stand. The thought of salt Rusting away a perfectly good frame makes me cringe

jester0618 01-28-2014 01:51 PM

I hope this white stuff disappears soon just for 2 days so I can get her washed. That or my 4x4 come out of the shop<G>

EB2GT, The car's in the garage with a thick coat of wax on the chrome wheels (learned my lesson last year). No salt for this guy. Besides, the weather down here for the coming week is highs in the low 80's. No rain in sight either. Sorry about your weather, but I never knew winter could be so nice. I don't think I'll be back until Spring. My fishin' rod and golf clubs are a poor excuse for a sweet ride down here, but it'll have to do. See you guys in the spring.

I've been making the commute from Grand Haven on the Lake Michigan shore to Grand Rapids every day, with new Goodyear Nordic Winters, 280 pounds of tube sand in the trunk, and a light gas pedal on both two lane and highway with my 04 Vert. I've had no issues, and it's amazing how well my commutes have gone since I last drove a RWD in winter in 1987. I'm fortunate that I have a car wash about a mile up the road so any salt accumulation can be sprayed off, and I park in a heated garage so that's a bonus. I am really ready for spring here as well. Peace, John

Ditto. Right down to the F-150.... Will get the 'Stang out briefly if there's a warm spell after a good rain (to wash the salt off the roads), though. That happens once a month, if I'm lucky.
