I PARTICIPATE HERE

GO FUCK YOURSELF YOU FUCKING CUMSTAIN

I don't sulk, and I also don't get pushed around on the internet or IRL. What are u getting at? There is plenty of info on this site about who I really am. Calling me childish doesn't make it so.

GTFO

Maybe someone can explain to me why I should tolerate this guy regardless of whether you like my car. I'm always open to constructive criticism. I know he's just being a useless troll and he's totally under my skin, but like I said, I'm just not one to get pushed around.

I just got home driving down a 7% incline in a snowstorm on i70 and came within a fucking matrix scene of getting taken out by some dickhead as he mashed the gas and went sideways backed into the middle median in front of me at about 60mph and then came forward into my lane just behind me crashing into the right wall as well and causing a pileup behind. Pretty drivey hot and bothered right now!

Because sandbags in your trunk are going to help with traction in your front wheel drive car

I'm just razzin you, my GF likes her accord too and doesn't have issues in the snow with good tires.

placing the sand bags in the trunk will only take more weight off of the front tires, even in a pickup truck you dont want the sandbags towards the back, you want to place them up against the cab to distribute the weight evenly over all 4 tires

i understand what your saying. and i do place them even with the rear axle and no more than 2 bags about 60lbs each. it sligthly evens the weight all together plus driving smartly helps. though an all wheel drive would be better,financially its unaffordable i do have a GMC Jimmy 4WD but thats the wife's daily driver and mine is better on gas mileage

That was a great storm. I had just gotten my license that summer and I was driving an 85 Nissan 720 Harbody with the Z engine. Needless to say, I got a ton of snow driving practice during that one. Drifting and donuts were so damn fun in that thing. And at 16, I didn't give 2 shits about what I did to my little beater truck.

You and your civic are awesome. And you rock lovely turquoise boots.

We just hate you because you already have how many days? I still have almost two weeks until I even see snow. It's in the 80s where I live.....at least that's what the weather report says. I am chained to my fucking desk for the next 11 days from sun up to well past sundown

Now...that's all the nice I have in me for like,.....the rest of the year. I hope you're happy.

I love you and your soldier-at-life attitude Mixie! I don't need anyone to like my car I just wanted to play with all the rest of the kids!

If you make it to CO for shredden we will have to enjoy some laps and safety meetings my friend.

I know it may not mean like much, but most people these days don't even know what a good days work is like
(much less a bunch in a row), and I always respect someone who obviously works as hard as you do, regardless of what it is or how much you hate it.

yes it was! no work for me, PSNS was closed for a week. I see that your in Port Orchard, we use to live up in Conifer park during my shore duty in PSNS(94-98) and i walked to the gas station at the corner of Jackson and Lund to catch the work van. we had one car at that time until we moved to Jackson park navy housing. then the wife went back to work so thats how the Geo metro came into the picture. wow! how time flies you were 16 then huh?! damn i feel old

When these people fuck up it usually is more spectacular and keeps your road closed for a much longer time.

It's the Indian, not the arrow. Skill and common senses trumps equipment every time. Having said that, I drive a pickup when not driving a semi and in deep unplowed snow it is a better tool for the job than a small car. The problem I see with the average pickup and SUV driver is they think they are invincible and overdrive their skill level and that if the vehicle.

On a plowed icy road, I actually think the small FWD car handles better than a large heavy pickup with a high center of gravity. It all comes down to the driver.

Which brings me to this shit storm with Snowklinger and comeback. Comeback, we have had this conversation before in this thread a few years back. Your tone is always caustic and incendiary. You seem to start fights in almost every thread you become engaged in. Do us all a favor and think about other people may react and tone it down. Not every post has to end with "you idiot" ( even when you don't write it your tone still says it).

Snowklinger, don't react, respond. It's cool that you are so capable navigating your car on these shit roads but don't let someone who disagrees with you in a trollish manner allow you to loose your control and stoop to that same level in your responses. There are plenty of people who will agree with you that your car is just fine in the snow and plenty who will not. If it works for you that is all that is important. Personally up here because of the depth and density if our snow, combined with the fact ODOT is incompetent at plowing roads, I feel better in a heavy high clearance truck.

Keep it in perspective folks. Bottom line is we are talking about a chunk of steel and plastic with 4 wheels that gets you from point A to point B. The rude you are defending to the death is going to a pile of scrap metal in the junk yard soon and you will have long forgotten it. This thread has had a long run; it would be a shame to lock it down because folks can't act like adults and treat each other with some respect.

I have never understood the level of passion people have over car talk....
I'm scared to death when its wet and cold out. Fear > skill imo lolz

I need a truck for bc and summer trailhead access, but CO just makes too much money to allow resorts to be inaccessible (so it seems).

I apologize for stooping to the level that was brought.

As I have stated, all I wanted was to play with the other kids.

Its hard to imagine responding differently to someone telling me that my humble possessions "are nothing to be proud of". That set me off and just because you tell me to chill and I'm chill, well....its BS.

I'm not trying to get in the last word and I appreciate the heads up, but when fools come at me, there will be some lame ass bullshit for sure. I defend my cave and fire.

geo drivers know wassup haah

You are right (except for your lack of passion about cars, we should ALL have that . Anyways, some people clearly take the opinions of strangers on the internet waaaay too seriously and it really hurts their feelings. I'll be more reticent of that.

Always a pleasure hearing from you SnoWolf.

PS-Thanks for your posts about riding backcountry in AZ (I think it was your posts anyway), my buddy and I took a couple of hints from one of your threads last year and found some sick powder 3 days after a big snowfall. Good lookin out.
