I'm in the same boat. I live in southeast PA, and though our snow isn't that bad, I wonder if it would be worth it to buy a beater. I can't afford to keep the car I have now and I'm not sure if a second POS car is the best idea, financially . Salt sucks but it washes off and as long as you have the right tires and good sense when driving I think it would be ok. If anyone has lived around here in the winter and driven their Camaro please let me know! Thank you!
