If your worried about driving it in the winter, stay with FWD. Youll hurt yourself with a real car.
Some of us live on mountains in New England. If I drove my Camaro in the winter I'd have to buy 4 wheels and new tires (I dunno the width of my tires, but as you said, fat is bad). Then I'd have to pay more insurance (compared to my Oldsmobile), and more for gas. And what for? So I could rack up miles on my nice car when I can't REALLY
drive it most of the time? Then you add in the rust factor.
So let's recap:
The Olds is easier to drive in the winter
Over the years I'll at least break even financially
The Camaro will last twice as long and look better doing it
Every spring it's like I bought a brand new car (exciting)
