How about one of my car after a blizzard?



If for some reason you want to use this, I can send you a high res version. But mainly I just put this up for fun. Doesn't really seem like the type of photo you had in mind.

I like this one, but the car is pretty small, and it was snowing so it's not super clear:



Ok, this one is closer to what you are looking for, perhaps?



It's not terribly glamorous, but with a little cropping it might work. If you do want full size of any of these, let me know. They are >1MB, so I don't want to go flinging them about unless it's necessary. Anywho, looking forward to seeing what you put together.

Dan

How have you found these older 911s to perform in the snow/ice? I've heard some pretty horrible things about fishtailing etc.

Ask Vic Elford how he found the 911 when he kept winning all those times at Monte Carlo in the snow

Here are links to full-size images for on-ramp and anyone else who fancies them. Careful, they're biiiig. All over 1 meg, full resolution 2272x1704 pixels from my digital.

#1 (buried)

#2 (lonely)

#3 (closer)

I made my circularly patterned tracks after the photos were taken before I left. But that reminds me my girlfriend has a pic of some similarly formed tracks that I haven't seen yet.

She drove pretty good in the snow. Doing donuts in the empty lot really made me realize just how fast the rear will come around if you aren't careful, though.
