Today's adventure!

I love my old 220! This car just keeps on, keeping on! My wife and I went to visit friends/family about 90 or so miles away. Heard a storm may come and didn't believe it. Well it did. However the ol' girl handled the snow, high winds, and ice wonderfully! On the last hill before my driveway I even had to get through a couple areas of over my front bumper height snow. However the drift across the drive was to big. From there I did have to pull the 220 into it's spot with my old trusty Rover. It was just great to let this old car safely get us home. I do love it!

After some shoveling and help from the neighbors bobcat we had the driveway plowed for me to park in the normal spot! It was a great day!

Colorado Springs





Monument Hill (For those that know my Benz.. Look I am in the left lane passing going up hill!! That's a first in 14 or so years)

Those pics do not look like what I associate with the term "great day".

There is no reason why it should not handle well in the Snow and Ice as the Country it was made in has that in the Winter.

Cobble Stone Streets can be extremely interesting to drive in the Winter or eve when they are wet.

A heavy slow accelerating Car might be a Plus in bad road conditions.
