this morning when i got to school i saw that the traffic was backed up the whole way down the driveway. then i noticed that there were people stuck on the ice and snow. (are drive way is a incline) I got out of my car to help push people off the ice. when i turned around to get back in my car i noticed i was sitting on a huge patch of ice. i got back in my car and put it in low and drove right off the ice my tires spun for a little bit but that was it. all i can say is that i love frount wheel drive cars.

Ok I live in the Phoenix Area, and the only Ice around here is sold in bags at the Circle K, or made in your freezer. But I did go up to Pinetop right before Christmas, and I tell you there was a Blizard that came though there. I was driving my girlfriends Echo (Amazingly I have a girlfriend now, no comment about the Echo though), and it was awsome in the snow. Not only is FWD nice but when you have an engine that dosen´t even have enough power to spin the tires on the ice that came in handy too. Plus it only weighs like 2300 lbs so i didn´t have to worry about sliding backwards down any hills. My sister in laws S-10 on the other hand sucked ass in the snow. It might have to do with the fact that she can´t drive an dry asphault to begin with also.

Big News for UK - Snow in London for the first time in 10 years! Surrounding areas had up to 8 inches - I live 20 miles from the centre of London (crow´s flight) hardly a flake!!

EricScort did not want to start though, had to ´cold start´ for the first time I can ever remember! Hadn´t driven since Christmas day until yesterday, must have made condensation.

Anyone recommend WD40 spray or other ´damp start´ products? Have heard it said once you start doing this, you can never start without it - true?

but i´ve never heard of a wd40 spray before?
i find that just plugging in my block heater for a few hours before i go anywhere (got a timed power outlet thingy, very useful) and the Scort roars to life everytime no matter the cold

never herd of using wd40 either. Sounds liek your battery needs some more cold cranking amps. Other than that I wouldn´t know what to do about that.

In my GT I´m running a POS Exide 840 CCA Checker battery...the thing does pretty darn well...especially with me running the sound system with the car turned off until the battery is nearly dead.

WD40 is a proprietary brand of light parafin oil supposed to disperse water and protect plugs and distributor etc.

Eric fine this a.m. despite freezing weather so it must have been condensation from running after standing out for 2 weeks.
