Default Driving on Snow and Ice

Evening all. Just thought I would share my first winter driving experience with the PT. This thing is a tank! We had 3" of snow with 45 MPH winds gusting to well over 60 MPH. Semi's blown over, cars in ditches everywhere, and almost every major road in the area closed. The "Bucket" had no problems at all. I am amazed that you never feel the wind. The longer I own it, the more impressed I am.

Yeah mines not too bad. and i have 2 rear bald tires, so thats saying a LOT. Only issue i find is in my auto stick 1st gear is wound a little tight, so i have quite a bit of wheelspin when easing off from a stop. But hey she handles well and plows through the deep stuff :-D so im happy haha
