Re: Deep snow in the quattro

Once, and this one time only, I managed to get my 88 90q stuck in the snow. It was a
snow bank in a parking lot that I drove up & sunk into (stupid, I know, I was having
fun). My tires melted the snow where they were & the body rested on a plateau of packed
snow. It took two trucks to pull me out. I was very embarrassed.
