Neat video, but really any car can plow through flat terrain with snow only a few inches deep. Glad that I can leave my cars in the garage for winter and drive my 4 x 4. I envy the people who have sunny weather and little to no snow year round. That's what I get for staying here in the north, battleing the frozen tundra!!! :-)

Like the great grizzly bear, come snow, my Camaro goes into winter hibernation. Out comes the Silverado and its fun, fun, fun in the snow!

I was just saying when fort worth got 11.4 inches of snow how much I loved it, but I also said I would probably hate it if we got snow 6 months out of the year

I agree 100% with all of this. I too have 18" Pirelli ICE/Snow and my car drives as well if not better than my hubby's 300M. I have had no trouble all winter and we have "enjoyed" to date 39 inches of snow and ice. I listened to the Fbodfather last October!

Pretty video but unrealistic, I like the car color.

I'm sure the camaro is fine in the snow, but this isn't a real life situation.
Here the car starts in a straight line, on ground to get moving, with no traffic or hills. How long did it take to get it moving before they shot the video? Did you see the jeep in the background to pull the camaro out when it gets stuck ?

Put the camaro in a snowstorm on the streets of New England and make a video. Lets see them try to get thru a plowed snow bank to get in or out of somewhere, or stop on a hill and get moving again.

We have traction control (that lets you spin the tires, which is good for us who want to), antilock brakes, and stabilitrack (whatever that does, don't know yet), but we have huge tires and a car body that is not for the snow unless you have to drive in it.

Until then I'm leaving mine in the garage unless my regular car breaks, and even then I may just get a ride from someone or rent a car.

Honey, you should have been with me on my drive to and from work on 12/8 and 12/23, it was as REAL as it gets!

I have a yukon, but same difference. I care too much about my camaro and myself and passengers to risk it. Also, I think my manual 2SS may fair a little different with all the power as well....

Pretty Cool video. but when i get my camaro, it will be staying in the garage for the winter. I have a 4x4 pickup truck that can do the job of driving in the snow.
