How to drag the wheels of your car and look stupid

3 12 2007

Was parked talking on the phone in a parking lot earlier in the evening when I heard this loud scraping sound getting closer and closer. Looked out the window and saw an older Buick driven by some college student passing by. Ice and snow had formed around his front left wheel making it immobile meaning that it was dragged from wherever he came from. All the other wheels were rolling except for that one side and since it was a FWD (front-wheel drive), only the front-right wheel was moving his metal bucket. A ONE wheel powered car. That was quite a sight. Wanted to take a picture but didn’t have my camera handy so you’ll have to stay content with a depressing view from one of my windows.

You know it’s cold when your freezer is warmer than the air outside. Long icicles had formed outside my windows and a couple pushed their way into this picture. We had a snowstorm the other day and had over a foot of snow out here. This was taken prior to the storm.

Wow! I would’ve been really embarrassed to have been the guy (or whoever) driving that car. Heck, from what we’ve all been led to believe, is that, FWD’s are just SO FAR SUPPERIOR to RWD’s…guess they’re not! (Thus this experience)

BTW- it looks like the frozed picture was in my area in Albuq! Was it?
