    This was a decent amount of snow and plenty of ice. I can assure you my Camaro at the time wasn't going anywhere either.

    Salt is a big part of it. Not sure bout TX but when we get snow/ice in Arkansas the hwy dept puts sand out not salt.

    That's too bad. It would look good on your car.

    Maybe I should add a hitch to the mod list.

    I think the car dragging balls would be fitting.

    The extra "drag" could adversely affect your 1/4 mile times. On the other hand, it would put more weight on the rear tires.

    Dang!! That's pretty cool. I bet people there don't freak out like people there when there is a chance of "snow" they all run to the gocery stores and
    stock up like they are going to be caved in for days lol

    Yep, we were getting it so bad in Ohio the last few years, it caused downed power lines and snapped poles in half. Went without power for weeks, food spoiled, no heat, frozen water lines. Not to mention hard to get anywhere without a 4X4.

    After 40 years we got tired of that shit, packed up and left for Arizona. No more snow for us. Up here in Prescott (5,000 feet) it gets chilly at night in winter,,,but the days always warm up to 50's-60's with sunshine.
    I wish we would have moved out here years ago.

    No more putting the cars up for winter,,,,and we don't have to worry about salted roads anymore.....Wooohooo,,,,I can make a car last a lifetime now without the body falling off the frame

    PS: If we want snow I can drive up to Flagstaff and look at it,,,,then turn back around and leave it,,,,,that's enough for us anymore.

    Most cars around here have the wheel wells rotted out from salt/sand/liquid they put on the roads. Underneath the car is usually rusted solid.

    Usually I store it for 5-6 months, but 7 months this winter, since I deployed.

    Yep, when we lived in Ohio, we always travelled west to purchase all our cars. Everything we own is from West of the Mississippi where solid rust free cars can be found.

    Now living out here I don't have to travel so far to buy a car

    Lucky you, I did drive to Arkansas to get my car. It was worth it. There's not much rust on it at all.

    The daily on the other hand...
