Default Michigan PT Cruisers?

How many does this forum have?

I have to admit...the Cruiser drives flawlessly in the snow. I am only 18 and when a big snow comes, I like to think my PT is a Jeep Wrangler of the sorts and take it through the thick stuff. Of all the times people thought I was 'stuck' good ol' Betsy never failed me and got me out of the trenches.

But anyways, who else drives a PT in this horrid Michigan weather?!

I live in Warren, work in downtown Detroit. I have a 2005 TE that does a fair job in the Michigan snow but it is close to needing new tires. I am sure new skins would help quite a bit but being a generally thrifty (read:cheap) person I hope to hold off until late next summer. Heck, I can't even see the cords yet!
We just got all new treads on our other car (98 Grand Caravan Sport) with 16"s and it goes in the snow like it isn't even there...

If you guys think that you have snow over on the east side come on over to South haven and check things out. I can't complain though my '05 vert does a great job at getting me through my 40 mile commute up the lake effect highway.

I live in St. Joseph and our PT does pretty good in the snow. Like someone said earlier I am sure it would drive better with new tires but that will have to wait until this summer. Overall I can't complain about the PT driving in the snow.
