Why is it so hard to slow down? Never in my life had I spun in to a ditch.

Pulling out cars? Pssh. Thats easy stuff.
When you start pulling out commercial trucks with that, then you can brag.

When I had my 73 Electra about 10 years ago, I lived in an area that recently had a building torn down, and the lot was just grass. Well, truck drivers in winter saw it as one big parking lot (since part of it was) and tried to use it to turn around downtown. Soon as they hit the snow covered grass, it was all over. I yanked out 3 trucks one winter. One 6 wheeler straight truck, a logging truck with crane that was loaded, and a full on 18 wheeler that had a full load. I literally lived next door to this lot, and would see them get stuck.
One 455 powered 73 Electra, plus a posi rear, plus heavy duty tow strap, plus some sand and a lot of swearing, and they were all out.
And I actually made the paper once. Pulling out the straight truck. Local paper happened to have a reporter stopping at the place down the street and caught it with his camera. I'd post it, but I have to find the pic.. its on one of my computers somewhere.. scanned copy from the newspaper article.
Buick 455 power baby!

I don't pull or push cars out. I just drive their own cars out for them. You be surprised how many cars can be driven out of being "stuck" it'* all about momentum

That'* very true! I had another Crown Vic that got stuck in our driveway in the snow and she couldn't get out for the life of her. I got in the driver'* seat told them all to bunch up in the back seat, and the car was out within a minute. Some people just don't know how to drive.
