Yeah, I drove my z28 and bird in the snow until I got the burban. After that, I might take the bird out just for fun, but I usually just park them.

Lol. I am from Alaska, so I am familiar with the weather. Snow actually doesn't get very deep there. Black ice is the real threat. But those low profile tires are not going to be any friend to the winters up there. I am going to attempt to add a truck to my fleet before the first winter. There are actually several reasons why I don't want to be driving the Camaro around in the winter time. That said, Alaskans had a thing for trans ams when I lived there. They were all over Anchorage anyway.

Ok. I didn't want to say anything until it's all done and over with, so here's the news. I figured out that i wouldn't be able to complete my body project before moving to alaska without 2 cars as i need to be driving one, so i resolved to get a second camaro to be driving while doing the body work on the other. So today I got a 95 trans am with a 5.7 liter v8 engine in it. Unfortunately I still have some logistical issues that probably won't be worked out until around Christmas time. I am also trying to close a deal on a subaru suv as my friend is driving to alaska with me. So returning to work on the body is still probably going to happen around the change of the year as planned.

Everything fell through. So I have little choice but to part with the trans am and put this project on hold until I get settled in Alaska. I move to Alaska in may and Alaska gets rain almost every day of the summer, so it could take till mid-late summer to have a car port built. Realistically, this will probably end up being a winter time project as there is little else to do in the winter time up there.

BTW. A few dash cam videos of the general neighborhood I am moving to. I can't wait to hit these roads in it. Sooner or later it will travel down every inch of road in these videos.
