I get around just fine. For snow, you should get snow tires, and maybe add a sandbag.

hit the archives for winter driving tips.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

In the winter you just need good winter tires and some heavy wheels. since there drop tops you have some extra wieght so that helps also and if you dont feel comfty with it then just add sand bags or home depot throws away flat tubes of concrete and theyll sell em for about 50 cent a tube if you want something smaller but equal wieght to sand bags(I live in michigan so i know about them nasty winters). As for rain just ease on the gas when acceling. mustangs have some good torque , so they hyrdo plane very easy but other then that driving in the rain is like any other car except your in a beautiful mustang :eyepoppin
