Snow Booty

This morning, while walking the dog in my jammies and tromping through 2 feet of snow, I saw one of my neighbors trying to make the corner at the bottom of my drive. He got really wallowed and we had to spend a hour digging him out. I had no idea how he got as far as he did becaus ehe was completely high-centered. We eventually cut a path to my drive and he left the car there. He was on his way back from the airport and Phoenix, where he lost to the Suns last night. He left the keys with me until they get around to plowing the street. First pic is my car. Second is his. Both are four wheel drive; mine just has a little more ground clearance. H.

I'm not an expert, but I think that is a $200K car. It really did unbelievably well in the snow. It is silent at idle but sounds like a small storm cell when it passes by.

I see a ton of those GT's around for how much they cost; i think they must make pretty good daily drivers. You have some cool neighbors--a Wizards player?

Sounds like he's a pro basketball player. Him driving that is like me driving my '98 accord with 135K on it in the snow. Nothing but a thang. LOL

Yep, one of the better Wizards, too. Very nice guy. He said they left on their West Coast trip before knowing the storm would be coming. He has a new Range Rover in the stable. A white Rolls convertible, too. Lives in NC most of the year.
