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.
