I'm thinking about buying a 1987 corolla sr5.
It's in rwd and wanted to know if it will still handle decent in snow?
I assume that it will be quick and have good handling, but will it?
Anything else i need to know about?
thanks for your time

if you've never driven a RWD car before in snow, don't get it. or you can get it then excellent winter tires for the back and don't go too fast. you should be fine.

btw... yes the SR5 has plenty of power so be careful! hehehehe!

what if you dont get winter tires but just dont be hard on the gas, will it be fine? because the 124hp does sound nice.:D

it's advisable to get winters but if you're in a budget just put sandbag in the trunk as long as you still have decent tires. if it's all bald, forget it.

definately put winter tires on the car, or ride the bus. RWD + inexperience + bad tires = death or atleast getting hurt.:hammer:
