you know, you go out and buy an SUV and you drive around getting like 2 miles to the gallon all year round, and cursing because even though we won the damn oil war, you can't get 12 cents a gallon at the pump, and yet its all worth it for that first major snowfall of the year where the guy in front of you with the rear wheel drive luxury car is spinning his wheels out and still drifting backwards and you press the little 4x4 button on your dashboard and proceed to just drive over him.

as Cube said... "damn right, it was a good day..."

or when you are driving your boat sized silver Mercury Sable that has a 3 foot key, no paint on the front left side bumper, and in bad shape overall... and it pretty has no control in snow and you slide off in to a medium or incoming traffic and die.

yea.

not looking forward to driving that thing in the snow.

I can't even get out of the driveway of my parent's house with that car. *sigh* times like these I miss my Mitsubishi Expo

As someone who once owned a 4WD, my advice is just to remember that it's still very possible to slide on ice and snow--when you're braking all 4 wheels, (lack of) friction works just the same way as with any other vehicle. Every time it snows, seems like I see a lot of flipped SUVs in the news because new owners forget that.

Bah! Bah I say!

You're merely trying to ruin my enjoyment of my mighty 4x4ing goodness... Now off I am to climb a slippery 80 degree incline!

Canyonerooooooo!!!! Canyonero!

Or you can roll your girlfriend's fly-ass pimpin' Cutlass Ciera with the front wheel drive and drive around the luxury car.
