Man those P Zero Neros suck in the conditions.
Dang where did you leave it at?

My grandpa lives in New York, he tells me how he has to shovel the snow etc. all of the time, I never said the snow just 'poofs' away where snow is expected for the winter season.

Enjoy your hot coffee tonight, Friday it'll be a nice 70 degrees F, warm enough to tear up some pavement with my Pirelli summer tires (in the winter) and lay by the pool with my gf and some friends. Ik I said I was done previously, but I had to mention that, HA!!

Just saw you got it back! I was like O
I'd help you out if you hadn't gotten it. I've had my Mustang for 5 years and driven through 3 ice storms it's a bit challenging. I stayed in Tuesday and decided to risk it around 4:30 Wednesday.

75 from exit 265 all the way to 285 was solid ice but they dumped so much salt you could get traction. 285 and 400 were a breeze!

More than likely owned a Honda previously and just got confused...

BTW - I just walked down to the street. There has not been a car passing all day. It is a total sheet of ice - I almost fell walking across it. I did sled a little with my daughter, though.

I am originally from Lexington, Ky and we used to get ice storms more than snow and the ice storms are much worse than any snow could ever be.

I wised up 15 years ago and left and today here in Naples its kinda cool, barely gonna hit 80 degrees today

Yo you should think about investing in a old piece of **** honda with fwd to take to work and when the weathers bad this way you can keep your stang around for a lot longer. driving these cars in bad weather as I'm sure everyone on these forums knows is terrifying.

As I learned in the weird snow a couple of weeks ago, it is a fine line between great fun and terrifying!

Seriously - not enough snow days in Atlanta to justify a bad-weather car.

All you need to do is buy two cheap studless snow tires. $250-300$ and they would probably last the life of the car. Just have them thrown on some junk rims. Then when a storm hits toss them on. We have "pax" coming tomorrow with ice and snow; i'll be going to work tomorrow in the stang. I've been surprised how well the '14's do in the snow compared to the old 04's.

Connecticut. Dead center in that nice little band of dark purple on all the maps. I took the mustang out when there was 1-4 inches. Tomorrow is the real deal in 12-18 inches.

We are all anxious to hear how that goes.
