W126 SEC Snowplow!!!!

We had a bit of snow last night. Thinking of letting some air out of the front tires and finish clearing the driveway.

Indeed, Phoenix looks so appealing looking at that pic.

I think id pull that air dam off if I was using that sucker in the winter.

All I can think of right now is enough snow covering it, rain, followed by a hard freeze, and crack, the air dam rips off its mounts frozen to the driveway

Snow is an hour away if I feel like playing in the powder for a day.

Plan is to get both of the Benz in the barn for the winter. Buddy is coming on the weekend with a couple of 4X4 posts and a chainsaw.
Got to widen the barn door.

Why don't you just cut the new door opening with those gnarly toenails of yours.

Works like a charm, when the LSD kicks in you don't even need snow tires. Can now make extra money plowing the local mall parking lot.

I used to have a poly v-plow strapped to the bumper of an Escort wagon.

No! The sun came out later in the day and the snow slide off the hood. Couldn't resist "trying" to be funny.
