I'd say at all costs don't make it your winter car, but if you have to, get a good all season tire or maybe a used set of snow tires, you can usually find them pretty cheap. As far as performance mods, I'd wait til after winter to do any type of upgrading because increased HP in the snow/ice is just gonna cause more traction issues than I'd wanna deal with. But when you do get around to it I'd look into a head and cam combo followed by an intake and tune.

Plus 4 bags of salt in the trunk never hurt anything. 1) gives you traction 2) rip one of those open and pour it on the ground for when you get stuck. Besides that, wish ya luck man

Go buy a 400 dollar beater and cover up the mustang. I agree a good set of heads will make a good difference

But you'll laugh at what we call snow!

1/4 of an inch cancels school and the bread goes flying off the shelves.

I've driven a Mustang through much worse (12" with ice) and managed to go up a long hill that had 4wd trucks spun out at the bottom and yes I did at them and had to show them my car sitting outside to prove it. Priceless!


A set of Blizzak or studded snow tires if allowed, a 80 lb bag of sand and a 25 lb bag of salt, add that to sensible driving and you'll be fine. It's also fun at times.
