A good friend and I in his 1982 Plymouth HORIZON (yep I ain't lying)
did the Bear Notch Road in New Hampshire. (For those of you who don't know,
this road connects the Kangamangus Highway to Rt. 302 it is closed during the
winter because it is not plowed). It was touch and go for a while and we couldn't do any
more than 10-15 mph. BUT it was FUN!. We stopped when we got to the other end
and looked under the hood. The engine was packed with snow so bad that we had to
cut the air pump belt off. He now drives a 87 4000Q and my wife drives our 100S.
Audi and snow are made for each other.
