I just told my wife that if we get good ice next year I'm going to go buy a beater. Looks like a blast.

Back in high school I had a slightly built Honda Civic I would take out on the frozen Lake St. Clair and do exactly that. Brings back some good memories!

The greatest thing to do was to get the car up to 80-100 mph, pull the parking brake and crank the wheel to the left or right. We'd go spinning off like a top. Leave the windows down and car would get full of ice shavings. Better than any amusement part ride!

I did this with an 82 two wheel drive dodge truck, I believe I was going 80 across Morrison Lake when I lost it. Wow it is fun, I slid into the island and the trees a little, and drove it to work the next week, no one could tell it was uglier.

It is an awesowe time when you realize the ice is not flat and it feels like a rithum section of woops at high speed.

Looks like a ton of fun! That thing had some good grip too! Were those BMW rims I saw on that Camaro?

We did a similar thing in high school. My buddy had a VW bug and we did a lot of back road driving. It was a blast to catch him off guard by reaching down and yanking the emergency brake.
