I kept my old '05 Scion TC when I got bought my Mustang this past Spring. It still gets me around pretty good in the snow and is pushing 250,000 miles. The Mustang will hang out in the garage until Spring.

So you have a Mustang and a GTO? I'd love to see some pictures of them. Sorry about your beater, that's a bummer. A friend of mine also says his GTO does surprisingly very well in the snow. Just not too much throttle, just love taps.
My Audi is amazing in snow, being a Quattro and all. It does better than my Z71, to a certain point. Until the snow is high enough it bottoms out the car; then the truck is called for duty.


Pick your poison.

Fack, a year or so ago, I blew a tire and the only thing I had to put on was drag slicks, while replacement tires were on order. Of course it snowed and I drove a week, in the snow and slush, on drag slicks. No serious incidents but a few challenging moments. Nothing to get bent about, I've been winter driving rwd cars with variously ****ty to good tires for 35 years or so.....

Tires: Winter > All Season > Summer. All my RWD tires that I use in the winter have Winter tires. Makes a huge difference and very manageable. I haven't tried winter tires yet with the Mustang.

I'm glad to hear the Mustang works well with all seasons!

I'm hoping to have winter tires and rims for my husbands GT/CS by next winter. We do have a beater 2001 Chevy S10 ext cab 4X4 we use most of the time. Only has 70,000 miles on it but the body is starting to wear out. We will drive the Stang if need be it is a coupe. I have seen a couple of Stang Verts still out on the road - don't think I would do that with mine ever. Would love to find a set of 19 X 8.5 (CS size) used rims and winter tires but been searching on Ebay and forums - nothing near to me and shipping costs aren't cheap.

I drive my Stang through the winter. I have Blizzaks LM32, they are the performance winter tire. I chose them over the full winter snow tires since I keep most of my driving local around NYC during snow. I've driven it through 4-5 inches of snow, it is not that bad. I have no problem getting the car moving, but you can still slide and throw the rear around easily if you don't take it easy on the throttle. I also threw in some extra weight in the rear with a full size spare tire and two 50lb weights.

I have a 2013 gt with bridgestones lm60 winter tires, two tube sand bags and a subwoofer in the trunk drive about two winters no problems but there is always some idiots that drives so close behind me that I have to step on the brakes so he can back the F off so this year I bought a $3000 suv for the winter to be safe than sorry
