Night time photography is my favorite.

Aren't these some of the most gorgeous headlamps (and expensive)

Great pics!

Iíve never winter driven any of my Mustangs, I came real close with my first one (2000 GT) but I decided instead of buying $1,200 winter tires to just buy a winter beater.

Welcome and congrats. I've always had Mustangs as a second vehicle, so they were always parked in the winter. Tires were too wide and had no tread for snow and ice anyway, so just as well.

Nice ride!

I drive an 05 gt year round. As long as you drive carefully and have decent snow tires it works just fine. Sometimes I'll even toss a couple sandbags in the trunk for extra grip!

I put two sandbags in the trunk too, I also have a set of studded winter tires my Mustang. I took the inflatable not out and the styrofoam and put the sandbags underneath the carpet. Plus it's only the 3.7. I really bought a f-150 so I don't drive my car in the winter as often but I still go for a night time drive once in a while during the winter.

^^^That's a good Idea! I'm going to try that too. The 3.7 will still rip the tires loose if you want it to

The right tires and some weight in the back and you should be good to go, I recall there was a day when most of the cars we drove were rear wheel drive all year round.
