    stuck in an icy hole

    Tonight i think was the worst i have ever been stuck. I was heading into the narrow entrance of the crater-filled gravel pit (which is now an ice pit) known as my visitor parking lot, when all of sudden i just hit this divet and stop. It was a slight decline into the hole, it was so deep my front was on top of the snow/ice. Couldn't go forward or back so I kept trying to rock it back and forth but it's not as efficient in an m6. Some old lady was pulling into her garage as gave me some cardboard which did shit, but then she brought me out some old jean, then cat litter, and finally with three guys pushing I was able to reverse out. Needless to say it sucked. So how many of you out threre using you bird as a dd have gotten stuck so far this season? Hopefully this is the last.

    That sucks.

    Thats why I try not to drive my car in the winter unless its a nice day. I did one winter with all seasons on V6 wheels, wasn't too bad at all but still not preferrable. Sports cars and snow just don't mix well.

    I only drive mine in the winter when theirs not too much salt on the road. That means absolutely no snow!

    Other than that its tucked away in the garage. Its not stored but it avoids any bad winter weather or nasty salted roads.

    yeah i keep the baby real clean though, wash it once a week, underside too. I had to scrap together to get this one let along afford a beater car. But it is still worth it!

    I also scrapped up what littel i had to get mine. i want to buy a beater so bad its pointless to buy a 500 dollar car that i'm gonna have to keep on fixing and not be able to rely on it to get me to class or work. my car is undercoated so salt is not an issue and i wash it weekly aswell
