Your making a level headed, intelligent decision without whinning and hanging your head........ You sure you're 17? haha. You're young. They'll be plenty of Mustangs in your future. In the mean time, what are you planning on driving? I've had alot of front wheel drive cars that pulled me through any snow that was thrown at me as long as it wasn't higher than the bumpers. In that case, there's no reasons to be on the roads anyway. Good luck in your future. I'm sure we'll see you down the road.
