You said it right. (as usual) Today was the first snow here,
and I figured the thinning Dunlops on the V8 would be OK,
ahhh NOPE..my driveway has a prounouce slope (my house is
set ontop of a large granite ledge.) I tried to back up
the driveway....the shift lever said reverse, the wheels
were spinning in reverse, the car was moving forward.
It was still controlable though...just remember to
NEVER hit the brakes in such a situation, as you lose
all control and the vehicle will probably slide
... When choosing between two evils, select the newer one.
