I had to hand shovel part of my drive, to get my 32 out that was trapping my tractor behind it. I had to plow several hundred feet of heavy sloppy glop from my drive, and took an opportunity for a photo shoot.

Ah Ha, you have to deal with snow [;)]

Just giving you a bad time. Nice picture.

I had enough of winter growing up and was happy to move out of the cold.

I imagine the wheels like to spin.

Just a little.

Is that Chewbacca behind the wheel of the SLK [:D][:D]
Close.
There is a reason for the Scruffyone name.
It’s curious that you chose that name, as I have a friend in Ohio that sometimes calls me “Wooki�, and he is referring to Cewbacca.

Our winter weather in SE Ma is usually tempered by the Gulf Stream. Most snow storms end with rains that take most of the snow with it. Not this year. This has been a brutal winter.

Back in 1962 the snow was so deep on the ramp that when they taxi'd the T-29's (Convairs) the props were knifing through the snow, and the nose wheels were buried so all you could see was the nose gear strut sliceing thruogh the snow like the bow of a ship. They had to wait till the ramp was partially cleared to taxi the F-102's and T-33's so they wouldn't suck snow into the intakes.
Ya, Mass. was fun in the Winter, I couldn't even find the Sprite in the parking lot, didn't know which lump it was. It's better down here, except the drivers are worse if you can imagine that....[:D] [:D] [:p]

I know it has been a long time since I drove in snow but don't you think it is cold enough to raise the top? [;)]

BTW I like your wheels.

Bruce, did you ever have to put a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator to get the heater temps up in your Sprite in very cold weather? I did, once or twice. The reduced air flow into the engine compartment seemed to make a little difference.

Yes, I blocked off the radiator completely on a few occasions.....

The heater was the only "radiator" that was working in the car, and it bearly kept the inside sort of warm. Can't expect much from a 948 cc engine I guess.[:D]
They build bigger motorcycle engines then that car had.....[:D][:p][;)]
Snow used to blow through the radiator and melt on the distributor, thus shorting out the ignition. Wonderful engineering on that Lucas electric system.[:eek:)][B)]
