Test hill changes every time I go there. One year it was especially tame I saw a mid 80s caprice make it up.

I say a 80s era Subaru sation wagon go up it and I got next to him on the other hills and it looked like he wasnt working half as hard as my jeep was,it was kind of embarassing, but when he would bump his front bumper would scoop up so much sand.
