so the snow owned my car

Well, I was applebee's for a monday night ritual of talkin to the bar tender that I know there with a bunch of my buddies when what do I do? I look out the window of course and see a ****load of snow coming down REALLY fast. So, knowing my car DOES NOT move in snow, I leave to take it home before the snow gets any worse. Well, it was REALLY REALLY windy, im talking 50mph+ gusts and there was maybe 1/8th of an inch of snow covering the road... all brand new and fresh so its nice and slick. I get going somehow, and am driving along the road when a gust of wind literally blows my car so hard I start sliding sideways into the other lane until somehow I got it corrected. I had about another 3 miles till I was home and let me tell you... I NEED A POS WINTER BEATER WITH WORKING HEAT AND FRONT WHEEL DRIVE CAUSE THIS ****S JUST NOT GONNA FLY BY GOD!!!

Re: so the snow owned my car

Man, you can fit a ton of stuff in that t-top well...I swear. I fit 100 dollars in grocery in one last night, put the cover down. And you never heard them siding around while driving, new concept to me.

Re: so the snow owned my car

Ive got weight, but it doesnt matter when I basically have slicks on the rear tires that are over a foot wide.

Im going to put some snow tires on my "zim rims" so im able to move.

Haha, if/when it snows/ices down here, noone can drive. Last time, me and a friend went out in his jeep, and charged 20 bucks a pull to get ppl out of ditches. We got rich that day.

I'd pick up some V6 wheels, drop 200 lbs in the trunk, and start out in 2nd gear when it's slick.

My 5000 lbs f150 is rwd and it works fine with 280 lbs in the back. I just have to baby it a bit when I start.

acctually there isnt much room in mine anymore, i have a custom sub box that is attached to that cover, and it takes up most of the space, i just tucked one bag above the drivers side wheel well space, then one in the bottom below my amp that is attached to an amp rack in that well also
