Being in the snow is fine. It's the salt on the roads that sucks lol.

I love snow pics of Mustangs. Few dare to tread that path. I did it one day this year, hope it's the last.

Yea it is fun for a few days to slide around in the snow but when the snow gets black because its mixed with the dirt and salt it sucks.. I spent a many years in Michigan with only my stang in the snow and even some days had to bum a ride to work because the snow was to deep lol so I hope more sunny days are to come to ya, that way you can put some miles on that beautiful stang !!!!!!

The first picture is a few weeks back... Was not prepared for the snow... But the second pic was finally prepared and covered her up... Really am dreading driving soon because of the salt on the road... That stuff gets everywhere!

Not at all, but the salt and other chemicals they put on the road to melt it will rot the body off it.

How often do they salt the roads where you live?, here in alaska we don't use salt on our roads so I can drive during the winter and not have to worry about it

I live in Illinois and they put salt down at every snowfall ( which hasn't been much the last couple years) or even the threat of snow

Every time the so called weather man predicts snow. They have a new chemical they apply before it even starts snowing. They apply it in liquid form, It's like molasses and sticks to everything. That's the reason my car doesn't leave the garage all winter.

They some sort of pretreatment here too but it really doesn't do much cause we get ice and it still sticks to the road and they have sand and salt anyway.. I doubt what we get is as good as what y'all get for pretreatment though.

Ugh this is why i kept my old car for winter...ford only wanted to give me $1000 for it. Instead of taking that 1k for myself i kept it and still have awesome 4wd in winter. I spent 33k on my stang...it takes as little of 6 years here in canada for cars to start rusting from winter driving. So when i see brand new gt/cs stangs coverd in salt i shake my head....cars gonna look like crap in no time. They even use sand here....torture for your car.

If you can get the salt off it quick enough it's no big deal.. However it's pretty much impossible, especially to get it all off.

It will but it will take like years of leaving it on there... As long as you wash your car once a week from the salt and stuf you will be fine and always wax your mustang especially before the winter it will protect your paint ant exc....

Lol, I've been buying and driving cars for 35 years. So I respectfully have to disagree. I have always kept my vehicles washed an waxed. My wifes 2001 f150 has 330k miles on it and the rocker panels are completely gone. Other than that the truck is perfect.

I'm thinking about just buying a beater pick up truck for that...

The common misconception is washing it will prevent rust....false. the constant blasting of water leaves the crevices always moist...when spring thaw rolls around that's when the rust explodes. Its not the salt that causes rust its the mixture of melting salt and water that causes the rust. I don't wash my winter ride the entire season...its a 1999 and has pretty much no rust.. I have yet to see one of same model as mint.

I'm so cautious I rustproof my mustang yearly despite it never seeing salt. Known has a program where if you do it yearly from brand new they will warranty any rust for lifetime of the car.

If you must drive in winter......cover the entire undercarriage in grease......I'm talking with a paint brush. Its messy but that's what I do with my winter car. And don't wash it all winter!
