The Best Snow Car I Ever Owned
The best snow car I ever owned was a 1990 VW Fox. I don't know if it was the narrow 155 x 75R 13 inch tires, light weight, or ground clearance but it would power through a foot of snow with no trouble.
That's not to say it was the best car I ever owned. The car was made out of leftover parts from a mid 80s Audi and the reliability was suspect. It had more personality quirks than Woody Allen.
To it's credit, it did fit me, three of my friends, and camping gear for a spring break trip to Florida. I learned about its snow prowess on that trip, when we got snowed in just north of the Georgia border. Overall it was a good car--cheap, simple and fun to drive.
