    My 95 Buick Skylark. I received it last year with 4927 original miles on the clock from my great aunt(80+) who couldn't quite get it in and out of her garage. Year later and it has 23,xxx on it now

    By the way, I'm taking an '02 Grand Cherokee Limited home for the weekend. It really handles well in this crap weather.

    AUGDOG - You said it!! I've had 3 cherokees (an '87 Laredo, a '94 Sport, and currently a '95 Sport). They certainly do handle the snow & crappy conditions very well!! Better than my brother's '95 Pathloser... My '95 has 105k miles on it, and when it dies, I'll shoot down to Atlantic City and get another one from you!!!

    Yukon, and I was still sliding around all day. Much better than the M5 though, with S03's that thing is just scary in the snow.

    I will agree 100% on the JEEP CHEROKEES in the winter. We sold our 96 for our Soccer Mom minivan (Don't worry Gus we stayed in the Chrsyler Family with a Town and Country LXI loaded out to the max)

    94 Toyota 4x4 for me. I've had her the last six years and she is a real trooper. Winters are really tough on vehicles up here in Vt. I also drive a 2003 yamaha sx600r snowmobile when we get enough of the white stuff.

    If I can ever get the repaired fuel tank reinstalled, I will have my 1980 International Scout Terra pick-up with 4WD capability this winter. But there always seems to be something else to fix that the previous owners (butchers) decided to "improve".
