Unhappy Drove the Trans Am in the Snow Today..

I sold my Jeep last Saturday and I am picking up my next Jeep on Friday. Of course it decided to snow during that short period. I have 2 Trans Ams. The '01 needs head gaskets. The '98 (shown below) has a BAD misfire. Only running on 6 cylinders (#5 and #7 injectors are not firing). Great. Pardon the cell phone photos - these were shot with my HTC Thunderbolt (8 Megapixel):

Conshohocken, PA:


King of Prussia, PA:




It's coming down SOLID out there now. 3-5" for our area today. Awesome drive home at 7pm I'm sure....

How did you get those wipers on. Did you use different arms? I have been searching for a way to use regular blades.

The 98-02's use regular J hooks unlike the 93-97's using reverse J hooks. You can convert to the later years' wiper arms.

Haha, no air is being rammed Sad!

I can't wait to get my 5.9L Grand Cherokee - I just have to wait 'til Friday.. of course, it'll be in the 50's this weekend... 'cause I'll then have a Jeep again. It seems any time I don't have a Jeep, we get snow. Then, when I have a Jeep, we don't. But those 2 winters of blizzards, I did have a Jeep thankfully:

Dec 2009 - At our place in Brick Township, NJ:


Feb 6th, 2010 - At my old place in Exton, PA:


February 12th, 2010 (Different storm) - West Chester, PA:


January 26th - Chestnut Hill, PA - Not me but another ZJ guy:


January 27th, 2011 - Chestnut Hill, PA:


October 2011 - My last ZJ (Laredo) in North Jersey vs. a tree:


lol... just a few reasons why I want to make sure the 5.9L will be good in the snow

these past few winters have been hit or miss. last winter it only snowed twice and it was all melted by the end of the day. i remember it being on average 35-45 degrees. but the winter before that it seemed like we had a storm at least once a week.

+1

The blizzaks were great for me too, but they didnt help ground clearance. I used to do some funky maneuvering to avoid the deep ruts.

After a couple close calls, I also got a grand cherokee. Now I look forward to snow
