    My wife got a job so now both cars must be driven every day :cryying:

    In these kinds of weather conditions I drive the Cobra personally because if someone is gonna wreck it, its gonna be me :rolling:

    Anyways, driving in to work today:
    -fresh snow overnight for the 7th day in a row :cuss:
    -plows can no longer keep up even the interstate had snow/slush :cuss:
    -forecast for -8 tomorrow night :cuss:
    -under a blizzard warning :cuss:
    -under a winter weather advisory :cuss:

    Spring cannot get here soon enough... :bored:

    Next winter I am hoping to be in a position where a new Civic would be possible and then my old 98 Civic will be the beater...

    sounds like a plan, but if i were you i'd make my wife walk to work. anything to keep the cobra out of the snow, talk about a time bomb.

    I drove my GT in the snow on performance tires for 2 winters, but we never got a whole lot of snow.

    Get a cheap Jeep. You can find cherokee's for a grand in good condition. No way I'd be driving a Cobra in the snow if there was actually a decent amount on the ground.

    I am praying for rain so it will get some of the salt and other shit off my car. I don't have anyway to wash my car when up at school. I hate this weather.

    Where is that? The only one I have seen is on Market and it looks like a drive-thru car wash.

    people think you have to have a truck to survive the winter. I've done 3 new england winters between my Cobra and my old GT. Never crashed once. As long as your not ripping around at WOT or driving through 6 inches of unplowed snow there shouldn't be too many issues.

    Just buy a Fiesta for a couple hundred dollars,
    I have a slobra, and I would be too scared to even drive it on the streets

    although I do live in Florida, so if it snow...I'm not driving on the road PERIOD
    because no one here would know how to drive in the snow...bumper cars anyone?

    I tried it once on a couple inches of snow. I gave up when I realized I had to use a three point turn to make a left. And going up hill at all was completely hopeless. Luckily I only made it a few hundred feet before I realized this, and initiated the 12 point turn required to get back home.

    That sucks. These cars suck in the snow for the most part.
