Driving like a maniac in the snow is fun as hell. I wouldn't have even considered doing so in any of my new cars though. but with my 82 Cutlass Supreme, I needed to learn. Took her to a mall parking lot after hours on a Sunday... and i went all in. Oh, and I managed to jump a hidden curb because the snow hid where the curb actually was... so i seriously would not recommend doing this.

I learned a lot about the car response, which proved to be helpful as I learned to drive i the rough Cleveland winters. The dumb ish we do as teens, good times!

heavily studded tires help alot on the ice.. not really snow.... we used to do alot of that up here years ago.... lots of fun actually... and yes, ya gotta turn right to turn left sometimes.... and ya gotta turn left to go right........ posi rear end helps ALOT... I was doing that with my truck in the snow last night actually... refused to put it in 4 wheel drive...

Not that there's anything "wrong" with being Amish. I don't want to offend my horse-drawn Camaro brothers....
