    Snow Targa - Pictures

    Guys,

     As i am sure you have all heard we have had lots of Snow here in the UK.

    Where we are in Worcestershire seems to be one of the more heavily affected areas of the UK.

    So I thought a trip out in my new Targa 4S wss in order for some nice shots.

    Hope you enjoy the Snow Targa pictures.

    Nice photos - I especially like photo no 5. You framed it really beautifully with the rows of trees and road pointing into the distance and the gorgeous rear end of your T4S Mk2 captured from the perfect angle.

    We're bracing ourselves for a second wave of heavy snowfalls in London over the next couple of days. Hopefully, it won't be as bad as Sun/Mon were....

    Hi Easy_rider911,

    Thanks for the feedback, I was quite pleased with the shots, its just a shame that the sky was so cloudy.

    I still love the shape of my new Targa 4S and agree that the rear quarter view is its best side.

    All the high res shots I took are here on webshots:

    Wow Nige,

    Winter wonderland and winter wonder car!
    I heard the weather was pretty bad in the UK last few days, but at least it results in some nice pics!

    Take care with the coming snowfall guys!

    Nice pics, thanks for sharing, I really like the idea of driving a T4S when it snows ...

    The Targa is the most elegant 911 in my view .... especially now with its pulpeous rear ...

    Hi Gnil,

    Thanks it was some of your pictures that inspired me to take them, shame we don't have wonderful blue sky's like the one in your pictures.

     Cheers,

    Nige.

    Nice shots, nice car. But "lots" of snow is relative. Here in Chicago we've had 4' this winter and in places like Buffalo they've probably had over 5'.

     Enjoy!

     John,

    Thanks and yes the Targa does have a garage, but at the moment I have my new Caterham R500 in that one as I need some space to work on it.

    The snow caught me by surprise, as the Targa was due to go back in its own garage last week.

    Le Chef beat me to it with both of those thoughts. Smiley

    I see that additional problems are currently being caused for traffic authorities in the UK because they are running out of "gritting" salt. Maybe someone should tell them that other countries which have to cope with a lot more snow than the UK have considerably reduced or eliminated the use of salt over the last couple of decades, due to the environmental damage it was causing. They spread stone grit instead, which may not melt the snow and ice on the roads, but it does help provide traction to keep vehicles moving.The elimination of salt hasn't done cars any harm either.

    Another difference is that,  in countries / areas which regularly have real winters, the use of winter tires is almost universal. It only takes one car on summer tires to  close a road completely when snow or ice set in.

    I wouldn't worry - they have diversified into storage of sensitive documents & toxic waste, apparently.  Smiley

    Oh, I thought you all lived from the crumbs falling from the tables of the Manchester United footballers who have expensive real estate in Cheshire. Smiley
