While the snow is beautiful,
I sure wish I could drive my 69! She's been in the garage too long already!

Actually its's not, a few yrs ago I took mine out (68) and was about 10 miles away when it started snowing. I was sliding  most of the way back and did not go faster than 15mph. I've driven in snow my whole life ..even had a snow plowing business but that was not a fun experience.  So I would have to say C-3's with powerful engines do not belong in the snow unless they are parked.

Oh no worries! I was caught in snow once with my ramjet.  Drove to work on a nice albeit cloudy morn in the 69. Later in the morning it started snowing! Yikes! Off to home again! Lots of funny looks from folks but I got her home safe!! Not fun! I don't like having her on wet roads now with the LS motor. No way I'd consider intentional snow driving! Heh heh!

Reminds me of getting caught in snow on the Harley! TWICE! Yikes! But those stories are already told! LOL!


It's 14 degrees outside now and frozen solid under snow and ice! Winter storm warning for the next couple of days.

My 69 and the 07 are in a 55 degree garage toasty and comfortable! I think for Christmas Eve I'll fire them both up for a while!

The 02 is covered but frozen in place for now.
