Default Snow and my model a

Yesterday we received 7 inches of snow in the Philadelphia area, I always wanted a picture of my car in the snow, so here it is.

I was going to recommend you use them for Christmas cards, but then saw the photo names. Excellent A photos.

Great pictures. I like the snow up close on the lens, a great effect.

Tiny,

What size rear tires do you have on the coupe?

Now, that's an easy way to have a full time overdrive but it doesn't leave much room for tire chains.

Haha your funny Tom!!! Good thing snow is just a fluke here
They are 750 17's. They do work well for an overdrive though

Yes stock very warn springs.
That rear fender is tweaked just a bit you can just see the "peak" in the bead at the crown of the fender. It brings the outside of the fender just slightly closer to the tire on that side

It's amazing how much difference big tires make in the final drive. About 20 years ago I bought a 1980 Dodge pickup with a slant 6 and 4 speed overdrive tranny. Someone had large rear tires on it and they were just too much for 4th gear to have any power. I sold the large tires and went with 235 x 80R 15 tires and all was fine.

I see you have chains on. I put chains on mine and go squirrel around on a small pond near here at least once a winter.
The pond is not frozen enough to drive on yet but another week will do it.
