Comparing snow driving with 4x4 and modern car. Unless it is very deep, the modern repmobile (the little car that could, parp parp) with traction control and ABS is actually better.  Shocked

Well, it does to a certain extent. If you mash your foot on the brake or throttle, you don't get the response you deserve. Laughing

I've generally found its the idiots around me on the road that have caused me to get stranded on occasion. Or the road getting closed for the sake of 2" of the dreaded white stuff.

Had most success in snow deep or slush with my old faithful diesel Golf with winter studded tyres. The 4x4 I have now is ok when it is in 4wd but if you hit a patch of ice its not the best in the world or a slight covering on the road in 2wd you can forget it the back end will overtake you in no time at all.

I spotted a bonny, bonny E36 323 coupe on its side on the causewaymire after new year, shame I had long admired that car the guy kept it in beautiful condition.

I noticed a Vauxhaul Corsa in a field between Bower and Castletown, looked like it had been parked in a hurry!!  Embarassed

For restoration/hotrod, hence not a problem this winter. Accesing by phone hence disjointed nature of posting.

I don't actually know what size the engine is as it started life as a 200ci 6 cylinder. It has 289 badges in suspiciously correct place but this suggested to me that the wings came from a 289 car. The motor is a tight fit so is pos bigger. I've not had chance to check the numbers yet.
