Vintage Friday Stuck in the Snowstorm

Now that the East Coast Nor’easter has passed and the pristine snowfall has been muddied, muddled, and molded into snowmen and snow angels, we feel it’s our duty to offer aid for the next great white storm.

No, we can’t shovel your driveways, scrape your windshield, or put chains on your tires, but we can offer a few helpful suggestions. First, make sure to keep a shovel, gloves, rock salt, and blankets in your trunk in case of emergency. Second, once you’ve finished planning for the worst, it’s time to hope for the best: enjoying Winter with your wheels.

There is no reason your ride must hibernate for the Winter. Empty, snowy parking lots allow one of Winter’s thrills: donuts! You can also hide behind your car in case an impromptu snowball fight breaks out. There is something beautiful about letting our cars, objects of beauty, out into the elements to see what they can do, and further, what we do with them. Perhaps you’ll spend this snowy season doing nothing with your auto other than digging her out of the snow; but maybe you will take her out with a thermos of hot cocoa to watch the soft snow fall. Let these vintage images of cars in snow inspire your next chilly rendezvous.

In March of 1966 my city had a snow storm that I don’t believe has ever been matched. This is a vintage car stuck in the snow from that storm.

To answer my own question, yes. An Opel Admiral cabriolet.

The liberal use of salt keeps my cars off the road in the winter. I would love to be able to tool about in the 600 with all that comfy interior, but no, that is not going to happen.
I am super curious about the convertible in the 4th last image, with the girls standing over the windshield. Must be 1939 model year or there a bouts due to the headlights integrated into the radiator cowl, but the make escapes me. Up market German car due to tinted sun visor? Possibly an Opel?

I use my Miata daily in our Alberta winter. Absolutely love it! The only drawback? Salt!

My favorite ‘ exotic ‘ winter driving experiences ; 1) Tearing around Denver the day after a 24″ blizzard in my AutoDelta modified Alfetta GT with hand cut [ for the snow ] Goodyear Eagle GT’s back in the 80’s . Sending 20’ rooster tails in the air and generally hooning about on the freshly plowed but still empty streets well before the phrase ever reached our shores 2) Delivering an ‘ associates’ newly purchased Lotus Esprit Turbo in mid winter .. also equipped with hand cut Goodyear Eagle GT’s on my recommendation from Denver to Aspen in the midst… Read more »

Tell us the details of these “hand cut” eagle GTs. I’m fascinated.
