My flight got diverted by fog to Peoria once, but it's difficult to form an opinion based on sitting in an airport.

I'll be over in 30. Call you when I get there.

Just kidding. Not sure what that was all about though. Are you planning to drive the stang in the winter or will you be putting it away?
Yeah I'll be driving the stang in the winter. I'm going to wash it frequently though. The truck driver is ahead of schedule and it is going to arrive between 11 and midnight tonight. :D

I only stalled once on the way home from the parking lot last night because when I first started it I thought I was in neutral and let out the clutch.I thought i'd be stalling a lot more than that.

General Altimax Arctic. They are well priced and are great in the winter.

That's a really good looking, clean Mustang. Welcome to the site!
I run a set of Continental ExtremeWinterContact and have been pretty happy with them.

I'm really enjoying the stang. Its a lot more fun to drive than my previous vehicle (2001 ford f150 v6 auto transmission).
