Re: Pics of your truck in the snow

Does this count? lol Hey, this old girl hasn't been given a good look by anyone else in a long time! It's my Dad's, and starts every time he needs it. It has been getting harder to shut the door tho! lol And for that, she still deserves some lovin' along side her kin!

We moved to Southeast Missouri in the summer of 1996 and have had plenty of chances to drive in the snow. It can be challenging at times, but fun. Since we moved here we have had snow, floods and ice storms.

Quite a few years ago we had an ice store that caused our power to be out for 9 days, that was a real experience.

These old trucks holds their own on snowy and icy roads.

This pictures are some of the best yet! Well,I got my wish yesterday. It was supposed to rain,but start out s sleet mid-morning,due to being below freezing shortly,then warm enough to rain. Well,that didn't happen. Nothing happened all morning,it never warmed up as much as they said,and in the early afternoon it started straight-up snowing and didn't stop till we have 3-4". Rod guys were off for the holiday or just because the day after Christmas is supposed to maybe bring snow. The roads were not prepped at all and once it started sticking to the road it got real slick. I made it home,finally,and had just fed the woodstove when my daughter called from just off the state hwy needing a rescue. You could drive 100 miles just fine,but when you drop into my valley it's another story. It's big hills down to get in and big hills up to get out,any way you go.Then,we are the last to see a plow. She had started down the hill and realized she would end up sliding all the way down the hill in here Beetle conv. There were cars all over the place,ahead of her,behind,and on the uphill side. It's a 5spd and I tried to take it down a bit to a driveway. That went pretty well,so I got it down the hill and walked back up to my truck. What a mess!
So,here's my '72 in a short video:

Re: Pics of your truck in the snow

I dont have any of the 72s past or present, but here is my jeep almost 2 years ago at a local get together.

Edit: i guess this counts as a 67-72, its a 67!

Not an action shot but here is one of our trucks with chains. When I bought the truck from a friend in Wyoming he handed me a pair of chains. I said I've never used chains. He said put them on before you get stuck. Then use bungee cords to tighten them up. After you drive 100-200 feet, get out and tighten them up again. As I get older I'm finding myself simply putting the chains on when I put the plow on and taking them off when the plow comes off.
