Snow Modified Cars

Car: Ford Taurus

Modification: The ultimate hood ornament, if this car was called "The Nessie."

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement? Anything's an improvement on the late ‘90s Taurus' bubbly looks.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Honda Civic

Modification: We now see why the 2011 Honda CR-Z looks the way it does after seeing this Honda Civic covered in snow. It also further emphasizes our sneaky suspicion the CR-Z is nothing more than a Civic hybrid with some aero mods.

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement? The CR-Z's looks without the hybrid powertrain? Yes, very much so.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Jeep Cherokee

Modification: Fender Flares

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement? She really should have spec'd a wider track and huge mud tires too, but these flares would still keep slush from spraying the windshield, so yes.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Lexus LS400

Modification:
Boat Tail.

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement?
Yes, it improves aerodynamics and makes the LS look less like a cereal box.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Lexus SC400

Modification:
Cab moved forward, rear window rounded into port.

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement? Yes, not only is the cabin now more spacious, but downforce is drastically increased by the elongated and scooped rear deck.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Mini

Modification:
Kamback

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement?
Yes, it expands the Mini's carrying capacity while adding a ‘70s retro touch. Much, much cooler than the Clubman.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Toyota Camry

Modification: Chevy Monte Carlo bodykit.

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement? NASCAR looks with Toyota performance? An emphatic yes.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Toyota Prius

Modification: Huge rear wing.

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement? By drastically increasing downforce on the rear wheels, the Prius should have no problem putting its power down at high speeds. Oh, it's a FWD hybrid? Well at least it looks cool.

Snow Modified Cars

Car: Volvo V70

Modification:
Cab stretched forward, roof raised.

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement? By bringing the cab forward and raising the roofline (and thereby allowing more upright seating) interior space is drastically improved. Now, if she'd just see fit to include some sliding doors, this could actually become a practical family vehicle. We think we'll call it "the minivan."

Snow Modified Cars

Car: VW Jetta Wagon

Modification:
VW Golf proportions.

Is Mother Nature's modification an improvement?
For some reason, Americans are hung on on buying Jetta's over the equally practical, more fun Golf hatchback. Nature's abhorrence of silly biases points out the error in your ways. Get the TDI with the manual.
