Ah yes!! the only way to travel in the snow, My Grale is fantastic in the snow the only thing you have to rember is that everyone else is struggling so you have to be patient and wait in line in the traffic. I an sitting there saying to myself why is everyone struggling for grip and holding me up ! I know very immature of me.And the down side, the Grale is now outside covered in a layer of ice and I'm sure the salt is working it's way through the floor pan  Cry

As I was on earlies when the snow first hit, I was unable to take any photos of my cars in the snow.  As it snowed again last night, I managed to take a couple of photos today.  Attached are the Lybra and Y10.

Is that a Golf with a bodykit?

Slightly off topic but....

Mrs Mc's car is going into the garage to have a bump fixed following a snow induced collision with our next door neighbour!

Question is do I spend 120 and hire a car for the week or get my normally pampered integrale out and use it.

Not doing any great distance but it will be on horrible salty roads. Can't decide whether I am being a bit neurotic!

 In all other respects I think it would benefit from a decent run out......

Not so much the snow but the extremely cold weather interfered mightily with my Lancia motoring this morning.
I went out at 0750 knowing that some warming up would be required, although the screen was clear. The door handle appeared to be frozen solid but a good pull got it open with a worrying sound something like breaking glass. Yes, the door was open but there was no way it was going to shut, not even on the latch. I then compounded matters by trying to open the passinger door from the inside. Luckily this stayed on the latch but wouldn't fully shut again!
The kids all piled in through the drivers door and I ended up driving into Shipley holding it shut with the handle (which like on many Betas is loose!). I was able to shut the door half way there when some heat must have blow into the door somehow and melted whatever was 'locking' it open. I was only able to fully shut the passinger door after it had stood in the sun for an hour.
Note to self - for God's sake clear out the garage!!!

Before the 'Grale owners get too smug, I think they should take a cautionary note of warning from this poor chaps misfortunes. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1992-Lancia-Delta-Evolution-Manual-DAMAGED-/260708548960?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item3cb370c160

A real shame as it looks like it was an absolutely mint 'Grale too. Almost too painful to look at.

On the subject of Lancias in Snow, we haven't had much in Ayr thankfully, but I took this picture last year. For a big 2.8 Automatic, she copes admirably well in the snow. Must be all the weight over the front wheels and the hot oil dripping from the cam cover!  Roll Eyes

You are right Steve, don't want to go through that again!

A colleague has gone to Austria for Christmas so I have borrowed his 4x4 company car and Sam has got mine. So we are both mobile again and the integrale is in the garage.

Not a Lancia, but took my Peugeot to Brands today for a trackday Huh?
this was the pit lane when they decided to close the track.

Poor bloke might have been quite innocent as it looks like he's been the jam in the sandwich. Shocked

I love that loads of people are still queueing to head out, or at least it looks that way!
