Default What is your winter beater?

Post up some pics and the tires you have on it too.

My two winters cars are as follows.

1995 acura integra with firestone winterforce studded tires for ice and light snow



and a 2004 F150 for deep snow when 4wd is needed

Not a beater really, but this is my other DD. We don't get too much in the way of snow down here most years...of course now that I said that...

1988 Jeep Wrangler YJ. The car still gets driven on the nice days but this is the main DD and the only rig that will see snow use.

It now has a 5.3L, 4L60E, Atlas transfer case and a whole ton of other stuff done to it. This is an older photo but I figured I would go with the winter theme

'09 Expedition EL Limited.
I actually love this truck. It bumped my G8 from a 'summer' vehicle to a 'summer weekend' vehicle.

2008 liquid red g8 gt

In the nearly 5 years of ownership, there have only been 2 days in which I chose to drive our 4x4 Trailblazer instead.

1994 LT1 Caprice when I feel like driving it. Has Winterforce tires.
And my G8 with Blizzak WS70. Also have a 2010 Toyota Highlander with Blizzaks. Can't beat that thing in the snow.
