Anyone here drive it year round?

How is it?
Tib is excellent in the snow, I passed a cop in a winter blizzard on the DVP south. He was using his siren to tell me to slow down. I just kept on going and he was fish tailing in the crown vic,

i used to, its fun to fully steer in and give it a nice punch at the gas pedal, and just see it slide forward instead of the way you are steering it

I'm fine in the snow. As long as you're careful enough, you should be fine. Be sure to avoid potholes, especially with the stock 17s. I suffered with having a large bubble on my left front tire, forcing me to get it replaced.

Ok, I just thought that, with all the mods I see for these cars, that people drive them in summer & park them in the winter.
