I came out of bowling one night, and while inside the alley my car had slid 1 1/2 foot sideways coming close to the car next to me. A friend asked if there was anything she could do to help, so I suggested she stand in between our cars and make sure when I tried moving it didn't slide the rest of the way into the car next to me. For some strange reason she didn't think this was a good idea :wtf:, she asked if she could help :lol:.That is encouraging - however - I think I'm actually more concerned that someone else's car will slide into mine!
I still remember sitting at a stop light in the curb lane and my Miata literally slid off the road.
I'm retired now, so there aren't many days I HAVE to drive my car. I think I'll just skip the snowy ones. Why tempt fate?
I don't like subjecting myself to winter driving, let alone what is to become my toy, now that I can afford one . There are few things I can think of that would be worse than a Sol succumbing to cancer. OK, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. A co-worker that sparingly drives, even in the summer, recently spent 10K restoring his Camaro (and before hand he said he was just getting a paint job, I saw the pictures).
My winter rat is two tone, tan in the summer, white in the winter :willy:, and this is an option I did not pay for either.
