I can spin the tires just fine. It's still a little warm out (40s) so the tires are a little mushy so I really don't want to smoke them.

You'll be fine assuming the snow tires are good. Throw sandbags over the rear axle. It will be a learning experience I'm sure but be smart and you'll be fine. People assume Mustangs are terrible in the snow. If you talk to smart Mustang owners that do it right (snow tires and sandbags) they all say the get around fine.

I drove it last winter also, with snow tires as well but they were worn down, now i have new ones. I got around just fine last winter and didn't really have any close calls, like you said i just didn't drive like an idiot. I just dont know how this stall is gonna like the snow, or if it will even make a difference lol.

so how come you sold your car then bought another one? i was really interested on waht your car would run man. :/

Yeah I toss weight in the car and run all seasons. Never had a winter where I couldn't make my 50 mile commute.
