Today we have some rare snow in No. California. Got me thinking and I thought I'd post a picture of my 1974 TR6 (in 1974) sitting in a snowy driveway in Connecticut. It was this car that I drove out to college (USC). The B&W image doesn't show the BRG exterior and tan interior that became the motivation for my current restored 73, but it does show the CT snow.

Oh! and the car just had been washed and detailed only to be drive in the snow that day! To be eighteen again!

Ahhh, Larry....

You've been in California too long.

That is white dust, not snow. Tom in Madison can post some pics of real snow.

Hi Larry,

"Snow" in N. Cal"!!

Here in NE PA; "Balmy", Wet mid 40s: Outlook for the wk. is mid 50s on Tues & mid 40s balance of the wk.

"NO SNOW"!!

With the "Global Warming" thats happening; You may want to consider moving back to New England!!

I`m sure at some point; We here will be enjoying the Calif. weather & You folks will Inheret our weather.

Probably not in our lifetime but It`ll surely happen!

Enjoy,

Russ

Suppose you are looking for a snow blower? Here is one with a Chevy 454cu/in.

Shouldn't that be a Rover V8? The lighter weight would help it corner better!
