It was almost gone, then another six inches landed today. I'm reduced to sitting in my Spur in the garage, playing the radio, inhaling the grandeur of the leather, and thinking Spring...

I had no problems in snow, haha.
The braking performance in snow is weak, but the chassis is tuned wonderfully, easy to drift and control.
Yes, I have winter tires on.

I have no problems with snow driving either, it's the MASSIVE amount of brine that Iowa sprays on all the roads. Even after the roads clear and dry up, there's still a layer of salt dust that flies up in a cloud and covers not just the undercarriage, but the body and everything else. Vehicles here live in a literal salt fog all winter long.

Hi Harpo
Same here, they chuck tons of rock salt on the roads , the grit scratches of the paint so the salt can get to work on the metal underneath grrr

They don’t use salt here. We are very environmentally conscious. They spray cranberry juice and put down cinders, tho.

If I shovel the 14 inches away from the garage door I could get mine out. As in your case, I go visit my Spur in it's little house. lol Gives us time to shop and plan for the thaw...when it finally comes. It's above freezing today in Illinois for the 1st time in awhile.
