Well I don't have to worry. We plan on keeping our GT/CS until we can't shift anymore. LOL - then we will get a used GT with automatic transmission. By then we will be south and won't need the 4 wheel drive (God willing - this weather is getting crazier and crazier)

I used to drive my mustang through the snow and had no problems aside from the lack of abs of course. But lately I've used the family 2008 grand caravan that just reached 300k miles on it and it kicks *** in the winter

I feel you there for the lack of ABS. I'm not too sure I trust myself to pump the brakes in an actual situation where I would need to lol. Luckily our main roads aren't too icy, just the neighborhood ones are

Yeah same here too but sometimes if you're making a turn and you feel like you're going just a bit too fast and touch the brakes, you end up going forward luckily it's standard so the brakes aren't the only way of slowing down

I've had to emergency stop in real world situations without abs twice. Abs likely would have stopped me sooner but I was able to keep my head and pump the brakes and avoid the moron.

Standard transmission? Mine is too, though downshifting too hard causes the car to spin out on ice
