    This is one of the best I have seen in a long time... (and I have seen many).

    How NOT to pull a car out of the snow!

    It is a WMV file. Some people are having problems watching it at it's current location. It is encoded at almost 700K so you need a broadband connection and the server has got to be bullet proof. You may need to "save as" to watch it if you have a slower connection. I can almost guarentee you will want to show someone else once you get back in your chair.

    I went to that link, the guy had to take it down cause it was costing to much to keep it up.
    Anybody else know where to get it?

    That is too funny. I'll bet those guys are "Fast and Furious" fans though.

    And all they had to do to get it out was to get all of them to push it forward and then back it out the cleared way. Oh well. I wonder who's hoarding the common sense-obviously they've been deprived.

    That was awesome. Not only for the fact that the bumper got ripped off, but also for the fact that if they had just moved it a foot or two forward, it would have been no problem to get out. It did not really look all that stuck to me at first. And then they pulled into the deeper snow.

    The rumor is that these were young people aspiring to become Government employees, and were attempting to utilize "best-of-class" problem solving techniques learned in their trade school.

    Can anyone identify the license plate? Could it be from Quebec?

    Note to all Fast and Furious types:
    Bumper supports are not tow points!
    You could see that one coming a mile away. I was just waiting to see how much of the car was going to come off. ;f

    BTW I've been the tower and towee several times with no damage. Once I pulled a Saab 900 out of a semi frozen muddy cornfield with a Mazda 323 GTX no damage other than the Saab drivers ego. And about $5 at the quarter car wash. Dang winter TSD rallye.

    A few years back I pulled a low rider type Honda out of a snow bank with my full size pickup. I handed one end of the tow strap to the teen aged driver and told him to attach it to the suspension while I hooked the other end to my truck.

    When junior causally mentioned to me that he had successfully hooked my tow strap up to his cars tow cable, I decided I better double check. Turns out junior had hooked the tow strap to his brake line…..~1

    I left shaking my head about the type of moron who would spend god knows how much money modifying his car, but could not differentiate between the suspension and a brake line.

    Never hook to anything less than a spring shackel, and let the owner do the hooking, Hillarious video prolly about 2k damage at least.:)
