Back in 1988 we had some snow / ice one winter weekend here in Dallas. Me and a buddy were out driving around and came across this car spinning his little wheels off stuck in an intersection. He had chains on the rear tires..................but he was a front wheel drive car
We just laughed and laughed and laughed while some 4X4 pushed him out of the way.
Be careful wherever you are going seeing as you need chains there in Cali.
Man I live in Northern Cali, about 70 miles from Lake Tahoe. It snows around 160"-180" of snow or more every winter. (Kirkwood ski resort has 162" of packed powder right now. We (Cali) isn't all valley and desert! I've hiked all over Donner Pass on snow shoes and the Pacific Crest Trail in the spring time with my Bluetick.
Funny story though! I saw the same thing in the parking lot at Squaw Valley. I kept hearing peeling out (on snow) and I looked and it was a cadillac fleetwood with the chains on the back and the front tires spinning like crazy
THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR TOO PROUD TO PUT THEM ON YOURSELF, AND THE CHAIN MONKEY DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S DOING! Or your just a dumbskie and think your own car is RWD.
