Sounds like the ol' winter rental to me!

This last winter, my RS was in the shop for repairs from a major collision the entire time snow was on the ground in my area. So I had a rental, a Mazda 626. Well, not having my RS, I really didn't care what happened to the car I was driving, so I really went all-out in the snow. Now, obviously I am no Colin McRae, but I had that Mazda doing some pretty crazy stuff. A really good learning experience, even though the 626 is FWD, a lot of the same tactics can be applied with AWD, of course with much better control! I must say, there is much enjoyment to be had when you're not in your own ride, no matter how much you love it! Hmmm, now I'm thinking about getting a beater...

Oh, and I ran that 626 into a snow bank at one point on a turn. I had to use my friend's truck to get it out! The slight amount of damage wasn't even noticed when I took the car back.
