I love my car

Post by Dr. Jones » 14 years ago

We recently had an ice storm about an ice thick in the early morning and I had to go out, because I told some one to meet me. My car didn't get sideways once until I forced it and then it came back like it was glad to be there.

Yesterday I was working on a new house that just had the driveway roughed in. All day people were telling me I was going to have it towed out. So when I left for the day a few people came outside to see me get stuck. I started on a 40 degree incline and pulled up it for about thrity yards gaining speed all the way. Needless to say the fools were impressed. Well, I'm going to quit bragging while I'm ahead.

Yup, I've been impressed with the way I can get around in snow around here -- of course, "snow" around here isn't much, compared to where some of you folks live. But I've never had the wagon stuck (yet). For an open-diff, rear-drive rig, it's very easy to handle in slippery stuff.
