My brother is pretty broke but wanted a toy, and we have a real winter here. He leased a stripped out Corolla for like $160-170 a month (no down of course) and bought a Honda Fury motorcycle. He drives the Honda everywhere and falls back on the Corolla whenever the weather is lousy or he needs to haul people.
My wife replaced her aging Honda Element with a new car. We kept it around, and now I drive it in the snow or when I need the extra room. And I never have to take off the Z's summer rubber now, while before I had to have snow tires for my sports car.
It works great. You'll be happy with that arrangement.
