Yesterday, I decided to take out my camera and go for a drive. Practiced hill and toe shifts a few times, and no accident to speak of

Did not crash

Drove the 86 for 20 feet yesterday (end of driveway). Got stuck for the first time ever.
However I did not crash.

Well we are supposed to get another 3 feet or so over the next few days so I went one step better than that.
Didn't crash it either even though it is much more awkward to drive.

Just got back from the store. *Almost* crashed. Got into a Mexican Standoff with a lifted truck at a 4-way-stop and we both committed at the same time.

...but did not crash.

WOW! Did you buy, lease, rent, borrow or steal that puppy?

Put some chains on that sucker and you might have a fighting chance -

Oh, yes, I didn't crash my FRS today - although I did put another very dent in it by trying to lift the trash can over it. -

It is the company truck. No sure how it fell into my realm of responsibility but I am in charge of it so can take it whenever I wish. It just sits in the lot about 98% of the time and I am actually supposed to make sure it get's driven for more than a few blocks at least once a week. I hate driving it so much that I am sort of negligent in that requirement though.

That looses traction pretty much easily, but in dry pavement it is fine. My daily commute is short, about 5 miles only. Anyway, probably buying a winter tire next winter.

That's what happens when you try running summer tires in winter. You'd best be VERY careful, those things barely have any grip if the dry pavement is a tiny bit icey.
