Me too. I loved it and there are people jumping to conclusions saying that the video is BS.

Read the description! 19" All season tires. Notice no halos on it, so it does not have the RS upgrade.

I kind of wish people would take the time and read their owners manual before trying summer only tires in the snow, and posting their ignorance of how this video is BS.

Pirelli scorpions makes it fun in the snow

I am failing to see what is so impressive. It is not like it is handling turns, making sudden stops, or pulling out on snow covered climbs. Almost any vehicle can plow through a snow field with momentum and all season tires. Now if they would slap some Blizzaks on it and take it around a snow ring, that would be entertaining. I'd rather have a RWD with winter tires over a FWD with winter tires any day.

Also, as far as being harmful, snow is no different than rain, or humidity in the air....it is the salt that becomes the problem.

Yes we can! I was in Bear Valley last weekend, 80 inches! It was great!

Cool video, I love the way the snow was flying off the tires. Originally from Mass., I miss driving in the snow. :( Had a lot of fun in my Camaros back there.

Good to see as im sitting at work in Connecticut with a blizzard going on ha. There are a lot of people in the area that drive mustangs in the winter, don't see why you can't throw some snow tires on the camaro and let her rip.

With snow and/or ice brings SALT! With salt brings rust and dirtiness. Is it worth the sacrifice? lol

I'm way down in south Louisiana, and my Camaro saw a little snow (very unusual) here
on Feb. 12th!
No pics of my car with snow, it couldn't accumulate after I drove it and warmed up the car. Cold, parked cars had some.
Saints won the Superbowl, and hell definitely froze over!
(Glad to see a V6 in that commercial.)

You'll NEVER see my baby in those conditions. I know the Camaro is capable of many things, and I give credit for it's performance & handling. However, this video really doesn't show the car in everyday driving conditions. I'm sure it's not as easy to get around in that kind of snow if you're travelling on a hill, or with other drivers around you. It's very easy, for any car, to "plough" through snow like that, when the terrain is flat and never ending without obstacles around.

That's just my opinion, but for those who do drive in the winter I hope you treat your car with the upmost respect, and PLEASE use high quality snow tires.

Not funny, needless to say we are out by the pool with a drink in our hand enjoying the warm weather as we speak.

Just come to Buffalo and try it. I see a lot of Camaros driving around over the winter.

I used to drive my 88 IROC Camaro all year round and with 200lbs in the trunk it handled like a dream even though the front end was more like a shovel than anything.

Snow isn't that hard to drive in once you get used to it. You southern states that never get snow drive 3mph in a half inch of snow. When we get 6-10 inches of snow, we still drive the speed limit
