    Post-storm shots.

    We got some snow. Hopefully enough to keep the outside a holiday white that makes it to Christmas. Took the car out, happy to say it's very capable in the poorly-plowed back roads of central CT. It has a very easy manner when the tail steps out, and it surprised me with its ability to grab when braking on curved downhills. The 195/60/15 Glacier Grips may not be my old beloved Nokians, but they do tear through snow.

    Amazing sky tonight at twilight.

              We haven't gotten any snow yet and probably won't get any.

                Thank you for reminding me about a certain s14.net-owning dude's birthday. I can't believe I almost forgot all about it.

                Mine is DD 60 miles per day, so there's no choice but go battle mode in the winter. So far it pulls its duty very well, I could not be happier with the car.

                My kind of party. I can't wait to GTFO for SC. We leave Thursday night for HHI from CT, and hope to get in before late evening on Friday.

                  I was proud of that parking!! so I took a picture. You can imagine the scene with the tire trace :

                      I drove my e30 around for about a week, right when the midwest got that big storm. As soon as the storm passed I washed the car really well and parked it for the winter. My city uses so much salt its ridiculous.

                        I'm so happy that I live in sunny SoCal. No rust problems here. :D

                        I commend you guys that drive your e30s in the snow. I would own a WRX if I lived in such a state with such shitty weather.

                            Nice!

                            But such a clean car with a potent engine, I'd definitely have a 2nd car for winter!

                              Who says this is shitty weather? I absolutely love the snow! You get to build snowmen, have snowball fights and every turn is a dorifto waiting to happen, I think its well worth the rusty floor trade off! :)
