These old rigs work good in the snow.
And you're on a more even field with everybody else.
Nobody can stop!

Bob, Thanks for the chuckle, I can see how it would level the playing field out with the moderns.

It would level the playing field if it wasn't for the dumb bunnies that get out in the snow in their moderns and drive at 2 miles an hour! At least you would be in a situation where you could not go as slow as them while in T low. I live in Denver so I run into this situation on a regular basis. LOL

I grew up in Denver, so know what you're talking about. Of course, there are also the idiots in the SUVs that assume because they have 4WD they won't skid on the ice and hence can go 55 down I-25....

I remember a heavy snowstorm here four or five years ago. As I drove a stretch of I-64, every single vehicle that had gone into a ditch was an SUV. Overconfidence.

Paul - We've got a lot of folks out here in the Pacific Northwest that can't handle snow or ice either! I have to be fair and not call them "dumb bunnies", because we get so little snow and ice (usually) around Seattle/Tacoma/Portland, that people just can't handle it; they just don't know for instance that when stuck in the snow, once the drive wheels break loose and begin to spin, you're done. So many people here think that if you floor the accelerator pedal and spin the wheels much faster, it might work! Seems like almost nobody out here realizes that if you can "rock" the car, and be easy enough on the gas to PREVENT the wheels from breaking loose, you can almost always succeed!
