Funny you should mention weather. We here in the PNW get 40degree and rain, well it's snowing with another 8-12" in the next day or so. I love snow, so tomorrow I'm taking my 2WD pick-up out and doing donuts, and see if I still have the siding gene in me, wish me luck TommyRot.

We set a new record here (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) this week: 106 consecutive hours with wind chill ≤-40. This morning it was -38.1įC and wind chill peaked today at -46 (C) - though earlier this week wind chill hit -50 (C) on a few occasions.

Definitely not Cobra weather...

Well if you guys are trying to me me feel better it almost worked! We only have about 2" on the ground and it's 8*F right now!

And Cycleguy55 I don't know if my old pickup will even get out of the driveway today, much less do doughnuts! 454 SS with a 502 HO and it's still got the 325/50/15 M/T drag radials on it! For sure not winter tires!

Itís a balmy 80 degrees here........ inside the house! Lol. Actually not too cold outside, maybe -2C(whatís that, 30F?). But 2 feet of snow! Most Iíve seen on Vancouver Island. Went for a drive for ****s and giggles yesterday and almost didnít make it back.
All the stores were closed. Couldnít get milk. Oh well, at least I have a stockpile of car parts in the garage to keep me busy until this melts.

-8 this morning at my daughter's near Denver. Close to 70 yesterday but then a storm front came through with winds (it blew the cover off a gas station) and cold here so mid-high 50s for the next few days (below normal) then back to mid 60s-low 70s

It's so cold here in Indiana that the exhibitionists are just describing themselves.

Here in socal we have open boarders so you are all welcome. Great car culture community. Its warm in the sun and cool in the shade but nothing like you're all describing. Ouch sounds painful. There is plenty here not to like but our mountain roads are open and a blast to drive. Cars and coffees are happening and mindful of social distancing. If you come don't be shocked because premium gas is pushing $4/gal. Stay warm fellas!!

$4 a gallon, don't forget to thank Joe! I hate to say it but it wouldn't surprise me to see them come after our cars! Some on the Far Left really do see a machine that burns carbon based fuel that's use for pleasure as PURE EVIL!

Of course them flying across the world in pursuit of their pleasure is just fine! Never considering their little excursion used more carbon based fuel than my Cobra ever will!

5* out right now, it's been snowing and blowing all day! I'd say we got 6" or so on the ground and got about 3 hours more of it to go!

Not Fun!

When I went to high school many, many years ago, one of my fellow students had a '65 or '66 Mustang that he occasionally drove to school. The car had a SBF, tube front axle, flip front end and drag slicks. Well, one day we had an unexpected snowfall during the day and he didn't have enough traction to get over the speed bumps in the parking lot. Fun times.

I also recall the 1979 Mustang and Capris with the Michelin TRX tire option. A relative of mine was in sales at the dealership, and there was a call for help when a TRX-shod Capri couldn't get over the small bump to get into the service bays because there was a tiny bit of snow on the ground. Don't ask me how the guy drove it there. I hope it was there for the installation of winter tires.

Brian I'm running a Michelin Pilot Super Sport - 335/30ZR20 on the rear of my turbocharged SlingShot! They say it's summer only and they are not kidding! It's like you're on a wet road if it gets into the mid 40s! And I'm not that impressed with it even when it's warm! I'm thinking maybe Toyo Proxes R888?

We are warming up here big time. Last week it was -40C (-40F) but we are warming up to a balmy -5C (23F) in a few days.

Default Cobra delivery in snow !! NY Long Island

Hi all, this is my very first post ! as of today I am officially a Backdraft cobra owner. ! Waited 5 years to make it possible. It was delivery today in NY, Long Island during the snowstorm by covered carrier. All went well but Carrier could not fit down the road to my home. Had to delivery it in a safe place off the main highway. This attracted all kinds of people stopping to video taping etc. I couldnít believe that even before this car was uncovered, people gathering around it while it was being lifted out. Kinda cool for me as a new owner. At this time there is almost 2 inches of snow on the ground. My home is about a half mile away. Had the top up, heat on, led lights on, wipers on. Never drove a cobra before this and my heart was pounding.....I can tell u itís not made for snow. !! Guardsman blue, Wimbledon. 427/480 Iconic. Sitting in my garage with it dreaming for a warmer day. ! Be safe everyone !!
