I have a friend who leased a new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 a few years ago. He drove it all year round; but he lives down around Oakville in the banana belt. To him it was just transportation. :eek:
I wonder if people in the 60 and 70"s drove these cars all year round. If I didn't have another car to drive in the winter I would drive my 74 obviously not when it's snowing or actual snow on the ground. I've always been a believer that u only live once don't see any problems driving in winter with a good rust spray every year. I had an 88 Honda prelude drove it forever for many years with no rust at all. But did get krown spray every year.

Out of financial necessity, I drove mine for part of the winter of 1968-69. Hahaha. One slide through a stop sign in the middle of two....yes two 360 degree spins was the end of all that.


If they lease a Porsche or Corvette and drive all year round, they are not car guys.... Just rich guys (2 cents)

You got that right. He never even had a driver's license in high school if I remember correctly. :confused:
My dad used to drive his 67 427 in winter as well as his 68 Roadrunner when it was new. You just put on studded tires or drove slower. Less road rage and traffic back in those days, plus people were less busy and more helpful if you got stuck from what I heard.

Myself, I don't want to chance ruining my vette, hence the 27 year old 4x4.
I drove my COPO Chevelle for three winters before having it re-painted and putting it away for winters after that. With snow tires, the car actually worked better than the peg leg '69 that I bought for a winter beater. Today, it isn't young kids buying the Corvettes and older people generally have the money to have a winter car as well. I've seen new Challengers, Mustangs and Camaros in the salt so nothing much has changed as far as they are concerned. Our 2005 with the wide tires and no ground clearance would be a disaster to drive in the snow.
