Re: 3 Audis TDIs Set to Cross the North American Continent in < 48 Hours at > EPA Hig I drove through the median grass during an ice storm once because the grass give traction that you couldn't get on the road. I also drove a big four-wheel-drive truck through a snowy plowed farm field pulling a Volkswagen behind it like a toy on a string. And I drove my 1965 Ford Mustang convertible on a winter highway through 1.5 foot of powdery snow for about a half an hour before the snow coming over the front bumper filled up the engine compartment so completely that I don't think any air could get in the intake. Ah, winter and cars. Yes, I'd drive a Quattro.
