    After only a few hours we have about a foot to a foot and a half of snow. It's only starting to snow harder.

  6. +1000 I grew up in Jeeps and I think the last good one was built the day before AMC bought the company. The last one I had was an '84 and I rebuilt the engine at 39,000, 76,000 and 98,000 miles. Keep the Alembic and walk, cause if you had a Jeep you'd be walking anyway, just wouldn't have the Alembic.

  7. and the snow changes that statement how?

    :p J/K Tim!

    Hey Whafro: you could always use the Alembic as a shovel :D

    and I had a Wrangler from the last year AMC was tanking the quality. I'll never own another... the sour taste is still with me and I ditched it in 88 (at a year old)

    Well, funny story, we got a couple feet here in Westchester, New York today, and on my way to school in my 1980 MGB with very worn tires I passed a jeep that had slid off the rode into a telephone pole.

    For driving on even poorly plowed roads, you almost never need 4-wheel drive. People get in wrecks in this weather because they drive too fast and can't stop in time, not because they can't get traction to move (that's what 4-wheel drive helps you do). In fact, it's the people with 4-wheel drive vehicles that think they can drive like ***holes because of their "great" cars and get in wrecks.

    Buy the alembic, and if you really need to get around in terrible weather, drop a couple hundred dollars on snow tires and you'll be set.
