What is the best winter beater?

With winter quickly approaching I thought it would be interesting to find out what Jalops think is a best car to use in the winter months.

I am not talking about Californians or Floridians who can drive their Miata's year around with a top down. This is for those of us who will get to see snow for the next 4-5 months with temperatures below 20 degrees Fahrenheit.


It will be snowy, it will be salty and it will suck to do any car repairs outside in the cold without a garage.

So, is there a car that can stand up to a task of lasting 6 months on one oil change, be reliable and good in the snow? Also, being a beater means spending about $3000.
