For those REALLY bad snow days, I use my wife'* old 84 Corolla with snow tires on all four wheels. When it comes to going AND stopping, the snow(NOT All-Season) tires make a BIG difference. Also, if you buy a car that was made after 1980, you really don't need the extra rust proofing or undercoating. Unless the paint has flaked off or there was extensive body damage(Crunch) to a car, I have not seen to many "rust buckets" in quite awhile!!!

Aren't all the rubber undercoating products basically the same? If not oil-based, they are all flammable at least. I'm not sure ...I'd have to check the label on the stuff I just used on my car yesterday...but I'll do that later.
