This image is based on a car I own, a 1953 Ford Prefect. The scene depicts the car being driven through a winter landscape. The driver would certainly need the gloves he is wearing as the car does not have a heater, it was an optional extra at the time. Personally I am weary to drive the car in the wet, let alone in snow. The cross-ply tyres offer very little in the way of grip.
