Well, I really put the scoobie to the test yesterday, in girdwood. My friends neon broke down there a month ago and we drove down to diagnose/fix it. When we got there, we drove way into girdwood and finally got to the driveway, which went up steeply and was covered in about 10-14" snow. The driveway had an old set of ruts from a jeep grand cherokee and had since snowed them in. We pushed snow with the bumper the entire way up the driveway, leaving a print of the bottom of my car all the way






i will say one thing, there are few vehicles that would have made it up that driveway.


Here's some pics of his car, it took us 2 hours to dig it out, and then we found out the cam belt had broken, so back to anchortown to get parts.

yes there's a neon in there somewhere...

lmao, go damn that's a crap load of snow. I've never seen so much snow lol. Looks like fun, do your brakes work after that? After driving through thick snow my brakes just barely want to work.

Great pics. There are only two times that I love Alaska: In the summer and when it really, really snows.

naw, the whole red thing is a wives tale. insurance is the same, always has been, and cops don't notice red any more then other colors. imo wrb is the flashiest color we have...


and while i'm stating my opinion, i think all sports cars are meant to be red...

Hey Jerry Zack and I need to swing by to talk with you sometime this week before he heads back. When do you get off work? We could stop in then at Conti. What works for you? PM me.

what??? the ONLY speeding ticket i've received *knock on wood* was in my red 00 cougar with plates that said "igobyu".

when the cop stopped me he said "nice plates. nice red sports car." and then gave me a ticket.
