N. Ky/Cincy here. Like AdamZ I drive mine every day. LS3/M6. Snow tires, common sense, learning to feel how the car grips, and learning how to rock if you get stuck are your friends.
Drove 3 NW Ohio winters with a 6spd LS1 Trans Am with all seasons. Only had issues with hard pack snow but so did all the big 4x4s and Subarus.
Also even though my gut and wallet hate it, 93 octane only. :/
2010 2SS/RS M6
Black on Black, Silver Rally Stripes, NPP Exhaust, 1LE Rear Diffuser
1996 S10 ZR2 M5 "HD"
1" lift, brush guard/skid plate upgrade, Nerf Bar/fogs
