Bare with me since I live in FL, but wouldn't that much ice on things like rubber window seals etc cause them to freeze and crack? Can't be too good for the plasti/painted areas either.

no - your weather is worse on the cars - all that UV is worse on the cars only bad thing about the cold is the road treatments

Those pictures do look really cool. The whole 4th Gen had trunks that raised the rear window when lifted, so it's not like it hasn't been done before. Cool how the snow happened to land on your car like that, I would have taken pictures too.

Nice to see young(er) people noticing things like this. There might be an aerodynamic conclusion or two could be taken from it.


AV95z - kind of off topic, but where in MA and how much snow got dropped on you this time around? I've got a road trip to the Brockton/Whitman/Rockland/Bridgewaters area coming up tomorrow, and it might determine whether I drive the Mustang or the Maxima. Your pic doesn't look too bad.

I live in Scituate and the roads are pretty much clear now. It is still windy so there are spots where it's still blowing around. Last weekend our town was all over the news for the blizzard. It got really bad here.

I am also 25 with a degree in mechanical engineering. I hope I'm not still thrown in with the young crowd

Thanks for the quick update.




No flame intended. Just that 25 for me was when Richard Nixon was (still) in the White House. I wrote a similar observation into a Science Fair project somewhat prior to that.

No offense taken!

Looking at your cars under your name I think I would be taking that Subaru out anytime there was snow on the ground! AWD cars in the snow make it fun to drive.
