Cool Vehicles for Enjoying the Snow and Ice

Enduring “Six Months” of Winter and Snow in Minnesota has led me to look for new ways to enjoy the snow. I find snow pictures refreshing and really fun to look at when it is 100 degrees with 100 percent humidity on a hot August day and sometimes I find them helpful when I am experiencing snow and ice driving during the frozen seasons of my life.

I love the rumble and roar of sports cars with high performance exhausts and over the years have spent time and money trying to get my cars or trucks to sound faster or meaner.
