Being from an Economicly challenged area of Central Lower MI that never seemed to get around to Plowing the Rural roads that I drove for at least a week, I always invested in good snow tires, and always had a Posi rear axle in my winter driven cars. So yes I did get stuck a few times, but the worst I was ever stuck was when I high centered my 4WD Trailduster on a 6 foot snow drift in the center of the road. all 4 wheels just hanging in mid air. If I was driving one of my beater Lemans's of GTO's it never would have made it that far up the drift and I could have "rocked" it back off and found a different way to my girl friends house! I almost got shot over that one as she was supposed to be home by 10:00pm and I don't think she made it until 1:00am! Daddy Sheriff was not amused!

Jeff, What TF were you thinking dating a girl whose Daddy had Firearms, Forensic countermeasures, and a "Gang of like minded Henchmen"? I think you should have bought a lottery ticket that day 'cause you was LUCKY! :D Harry
