Wow that thing was truly buried!

I don't drive my '77 in the snow these days but here's a pic from the '80s from one of the prior owners, whom I've met, from a snowstorm in Massachusetts.

Love the pic!

I like your '58 Tojeiro Climax even better than the Westfield (Lotus) XI I want to someday build. I want to use a Climax engine as well.

That's Jay Lloyd. He's a local Porsche expert, good guy, and he built that 934 himself. Good for him for using it. Hopefully no damage done.

Does snow do any long term damage to a car, rust etc? We don't really have snow here.

The snow, not too much, but the salt that's put down to melt the snow combines with partially melted snow that eats cars up.
