Some recent pics from the beginning of this winter

Out playing, wheeling in the snow











Got a little cocky comming down from the hill last weekend, went to climb this steep and slick trail and got royally stuck when my truck slid back sideways right off the trail and was tipping bad in the soft stuff. Thank god for the jeep driving by that I was able to wave down!

2005 Yellow 350Z. I didn't snowboard at the time when I bought it. It takes immense amounts of force to wedge one snowboard into that car. It goes over my head from the "trunk" to straight over my head/shifter. Here is an old picture before I took apart the front.

Here's an old picture from a day of parking garage drifting. It looks a bit different now, but it is what it is.

^^Where do you live that a Z can get you to the mountains? Definitely wouldn't happen here in the PNW.

Yeah man, that car wouldn't make it even half way to the hill.

2013 Genesis Coupe 2.0T, not the best choice as a snowboarding vehicle but I should be fine with these winter tires. As a GT car its great with so at least my 2-hour commute to the hill is more bearable, plus it has buttwarmers lol. Wanted a WRX before but couldn't justify the high cost of a used one here in Toronto =S

I have a few..
land rover discovery: unreliable gas hog 12mpg, awesome in the snow
audi a4 1.8t quattro: with 4 studded tires unstoppable, good mileage 25mpg, unreliable
chicks dig these euro cars!!

dodge 2500 4x4 diesel: whats snow?,17mpg, does not warm up quik and stinks up the parking lot bad.. only redneck girls look twice. I leave it hooked up to the boat.

being a master auto tech for the last 21yrs i have some suggestions:
subaru.. you cannot kill em, amazing in the snow, cheap, lots of room
toyota/lexus are the best cars built in the world for reliability etc..
honda/acura are also very good
if you are going to invest lots of cash into a car you might think twice b4 u get the look at me euro car. Or have deep pockets for endless repairs.

It's always nice to hear this from mechanics, techs, and industry people, and anyone who is looking to get a new vehicle should pay attention to your advice. I've owned a bunch of Toyotas and a couple of Subarus and currently own a Lexus; they are all exceptionally reliable vehicles. Just about everyone I know who own Euro/American cars is in the shop a lot more than those who own Japanese vehicles.
