hi, i'm new here. i owned an '87 coupe. loved that car. just hugged the road, and i must say, it was GREAT in snow. i took that car in the craziest of places. front wheel drive with Michelin Artic Alpin tires was the key. i took very good care of that car. got over 300,000 miiles on it before i passed it on to my boy friend who could maintain it better then me. he still uses it ever now and then. i now own a '98 Avant. i still run with Michelin Artic Alpin tires all year round. Great in rain as well as snow, and very long lasting.
