Got caught in a snow storm on the way to Vermont last year, the C2 handled it very well up until the last 100 feet steep run to the garage.



My dad pulled me out the next day with the 4wd GMC.



Pulled me out with the front tow hook.



I've been on the lookout for a set of D-90 wheels with snow tires since then.

actually this is a picture of my '88 mustang ragtop, the targa is parked just to the left, under even more snow. the footprints belong to a neighbors child. the mustang and the child are both gone now. the targa is spending this winter in a friends barn down the road.

Child gone 'cause they walked on your car? Sounds like a good reason to me...

Here's a shot I took out the back door just tonight. And it is not even Thanksgiving yet! I think my 911 is off the road for awhile.

snow?

Back in January of '06 we had a freak snow flurry here in the OC.
It all melted before I could get my camera out though...
