We only got a couple of inches, but enough to have a little fun.

I wanted to check out the new snow tires, so I took the Legacy into some forest service roads at a local state forest.

Had a good time, and the tires did well with one complaint. It took a lot of work to get the wheels spinning for donuts.

I went alone, so there are no action shots. I did however get a nice portrait of the Legacy with my new rims and tires. Not bad for about $200.

Nice looking wheels! Great deal. :D

I actually had the opportunity to kick the outback sideways on my road a couple of times this weekend. I was by myself and nobody was on the road. The rear kicking out is such a breath of fresh air after driving so much FWD lately. The acceleration even when sideways is amazing.

WooooHooooo!

I was waiting for that one:D

Thankfully most of the guys from that meet don't visit the New Gen side.

I went to lunch with a friend of mine today in the 91. He has an old 91 Jimmy, and is currently driving around a 00 Grand Prix. I went sideways out of his work's parking lot, and TOTALLY made him jealous. He seriously wants his Jimmy back now :D

SIDEWAYS!

I went there today.

Mucho fun. I haven't said it in a couple of days, but MAN, I'M DIGGIN' THE AWD!

What I really love is taking off from a light on a nasty, snow-covered road and watchin' everybody get smaller in the rearview- tires spinnin' away... :-p
