With a major snow storm bearing down on the Dakotas, it's already that time of year where we start talking about how we'd like to get through a snow storm. We assume most people stranded on South Dakota roads weren't driving around in Mini Cooper Convertibles, though we're worried that a few people may have been caught unprepared. Because we keep our eyes to the sky and our mind on our wheels we don't plan on ever getting stranded on the road in something not up to the task. A good snow storm-mobile needs to not only get you through the storm but also help you survive it if you're stranded or roads are shut down. With that in mind, what kind of vehicle would you want in a snow storm? It's hard to argue against a Pinzgauer with tracks. Designed to survive rough winters, the Pinzgauer (with a hard top) is already built for survival. It's tough, it's strong and it's so strange that we think they'd try to save us first. Add a set of tracks to it and you'll definitely lower the chances that you need saving. You can also pick up a Pinzgauer from these guys.

After the financial news that has come out of GM and Ford today shouldn't the QOTD be "What kind of a vehicle would you want in a shit-storm"? And the answer would be "Apparently not anything from GM or Ford."
Okay, enough with that. I'd want an RS200 Evolution, Keeley Hazell and a bottle of good single malt scotch. That should pretty much tide me over regardless of whether I make it home or not.
