LOL, this is why a lot of older Porsche 911's in Europe are rusted to hell. People found out they were pretty good snow cars with the motor over the rear wheels and drove them all winter. Unfortunately, it being a no compromises sports car, they had very little in the way of corrosion proofing on the undercarriage.
