Fun in the snow!!

Since I had to drive/pickup my wife from work tonight, and it started to snow around 6, I decided to have a little fun in her work parking lot since at 10, no one was around except the 1 FWD cavi that were stuck on a curb, lol.. They asked if I could help get him down, as for some reason, he couldn't get it to move. me and one of his friends pushed while he tried to back it off whatever he was on, but no use. I started to smell antifreeze, and thought it was my car for some reason, but nope- not mine. I grabbed the chain that hides in the spare tire in my trunk, hooked from my frame rail, to his support (I use the term loosely), and used the Vic to pull him off the curb no sweat. Actually drug the guy a few feet, lol. After I listen to the bone chilling scraping noises coming from his front end on the way down, I checked for damage for him. Sure enough, he crunched the rad, and messed the lower front cover up pretty good. I finally got out of him that they were trying to do donuts and lost control, and ended up climbing what they thought was a curb. Turns out they parked it right on top of a big ol' rock that is used in landscaping. Said his dad just bought the car and he wasn't allowed to drive it, but dad was outta town. I just laughed, wished him luck, and went on my way, doing some hellacious donuts of my own . Gotta love RWD. Even made $10 out of it. Anyone else enjoying the snow?

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

Kind of, took a ride with my friend in my Stang GT. I will say, it's a lot scarier riding than driving, but it's fun. Especially since the faculty and commuter parking lot is empty right now

Cool

It's suppose to be in my area sometime tonight, Sunday. We are only suppose to get about an inch, maybe, here depending on the track. I've got Cooper Weathermaster ST II's, Studded, on the rear and Weathermaster I's up front. And I do have a posi. I'ts fun to go into a power slide sideways in the snow while shooting duel Rooster Tails out the back. These tires dig! Dig it! And studs are the only thing that will stop you on ice. I know. I've been useing studded snows every season since I was teenager. I remember being out driving with my dad in the snow and he always preached studs. One year about 3 years ago, I had a problem finding someone to stud my tires, so I tried the studless. Bad Move!! I had the Blizzak WS-50 and some other type of Blizzak on another car. There is no comparison. Never again.. Anyway--- Here's hope ing for snow!!
