    Gee, Brian, don't all winter beaters in snow country idle like that Galaxie . . . and fishtail around on the streets?

    Speaking of fishtailing on snow . . .

    As a young Speedzzter-in-training (which was too long ago) with a newly-minted drivers license, I was whipping a 455 Olds around on our little ice racing course (neighborhood streets) on the way to school one January day.

    Friday, January 13 to be more specific.

    After a particularly awesome fishtail, I floored it and the recap snow tires bit hard. Soon my brother and I were careening down "the straightaway," with the Rochester howling viciously under the flipped air cleaner lid.

      . . . All was going brilliantly well, until it came time to stop.

      A '63 Galaxie sat motionless at a stop sign. It did a good, albeit violent job of arresting the Oldsmobile's forward progress.

      The Olds' doors wouldn't open. After collecting his thoughts, my brother started exiting "NASCAR-style" through the window. He suddenly disappeared, slipping on the ice.

      I howled with laughter and began my own "Dukes of Hazzard" egress through the driver's side window. I landed on my keaster as well. More laughter -- this time from my brother.

      The Galaxie's driver, a hysterical young mother with a toddler in tears wasn't amused. Neither were the cops. Or Mom and Dad . . . .

        I've seen Jobergg's videos posted here on the forums a number of times, but it is excellent to see old Nascar rides driven as they were intended. :D ;D ;)

          Those crazy Scandanavians seem to know something about having fun with their cars that we uptight Americans just don't get.


          Speaking of which-where's Arild been lately?
