Will a few crates of tofu in the trunk work as well?

Actually here in Georgia we use boxes of Mason jars with ugggm, water in them, yea, that's it, water, and fuel, some of them are fuel for our dragster... Yea, that should cover it.

In Canada, we use bags of salt for water softeners... either that or a log we cut down, you know, lumber jacks and all.

I think my uncle used to do that, I couldn't stand the smell. Sided with the salt/log alternative. Not as cheap, but gets the job done.

And nobody wants rice? I seems to remember someone suggest rice bags as an alternative to sand bags so that you can eat that in the summer time.

No need for ballast in the trunk of the 49/51 S2000 with Dunlop WinterSports. 55/45 FR-S might need some... Cat owner, I use kitty litter, which also makes great traction compound on the snow :P

Ill just shove the dead hookers I don't want to pay in my trunk during the winter time

/endtroll

Really though, just get some blizzak tires and start it in second gear to get rid of the wheel spin and you should be good. Those tires have really good grip in the winter time.

I think a park bench for a spoiler would be of great benefit.

you get the benefits of extra weight in the back for the snow and a cheap way to create downforce! Plus it'll look like those park bench spoilers anyways!

You guys are clearly not fans of Top Gear UK.

Otherwise you guys would all be set to go. Too bad we would all have to keep sharing Ross Kemp for the trunk.
