Snow fun in my quattro.

	I'm sure everyone is sick of these messages.  I'll make it short. 
I pulled out a BMW 5 series with snows that was stuck in a parking lot
right after I pulled out a Buick from another.  What fun that was.   It
was like an Ice skating rink though and even with both diffs locked and
studs I was easilly spinning tires just by letting out clutch. Had to use
a "Little" momentum to get other car moving. 
	There was ONE car there though that could of out performed me
however.  Later that night an interesting truck showed up.  Brand new
Dodge 3/4 ton extended cab and long bed.   WITH   TRACKS!!!   Talk about a
Snow Beast.  This had tracks in place of each wheel that added a good foot
to the overall height and each track was about 3 feet long and probably
12-14 inches wide.  Talk about a contact patch.  It moved great on snow
and Ice.  I guess it worked on ice because the rubber could mold around
all the little edges in the ice and grip it.  In snow, well, thats
obvious.  Anyhow, pretty neat, I have seen pics of trucks with this but
never in person.  I will post pics on my web page soon.  L8R
