    If you can drive a camaro in the snow you can drive about anything, our rears are so dang light that every time you try to turn you end up either spinning or sliding. I had to make it through a couple winters when it was my DD. Thank god I don't have to do that anymore.

    I'm rocking mine out in the white stuff and it's better than most front wheelers. Just need to know how to drive I guess...

    My dad puts steelies and Blizzaks on his SS every year and that thing will go places that no other RWD car can go. It's crazy.

    My TA, on the other hand, sucks more than anything I've ever owned. I got it stuck at the bottom of my driveway in an inch of snow. I put "ultra high performance all-season" (an oxymoron of sorts) tires on it and it's a little better, but the 275 width hurts it. For snow tires, the skinnier the better. Need to slice through the snow, not ride on top of it.

    With a foot of snow in the forecast for today I just covered the TA and parked it off to the side.

    Sounds like fun.
    We only got about an inch on the ground here. Just enough to wreck a few idiots on the highway.

    Toss a sandbag in your trunk, it actually helps, if you have to drive in snow.

    Depending on tire...you may have problems. The torque comes on so quickly, you really have to pedal it to drive around in the snow.
    But if I can get my around on Nitto DR's on snow (granted, only had to make it a few miles to the parts place for some shit for my DD), you should be fine.

    its pretty much the same here, 17" in our yard. parked my TA in the back garage, i figured im not gonna take it out for about a week after the snows gone, i hate cleaning the chemicals off after every time i take it out. once the ground is hard enough to drive on the roads should be good.

    Drove mine once in snow/slush. After I slid off the road without doing anything, that was it. NEVER again. When the snow flies, the SS goes onto jackstands till April/May.

    Yeah, we got like 3-4" of snow and the camaro didn't move an inch. Just started her up, did a warm up, took off all the snow on the car and shut her down.

    Who needs a fancy interior, its a jeep
    If you need something to get you around in the wintertime get it
    Hardtop would be better, keeps the cold out
