find the 914

It has finally stopped snowing. From Monday night to today, Idaho Springs, CO received 80" of snow. Yes 80.

I guess that I don't have to be in such a hurry to finish my project. Here is a pic of my two 914s that don't enjoy garage space.

You SoCal guys go take your cars for a drive for me.

That is crazzy!!!

There aren't too many trucks out there that can handle 80" of snow.. Was you whole town shut down or what???

Here in Virginia if we get 3" or more the whole place freeks out. People buying water like it's the end of the world. It's a riot to see.


Best of luck getting the cars out. Maybe by June you'll get to go for a nice 45degree ride in only 12" of snow

I figure they don't bother putting salt down over an 80" snowfall, do they? So the cars should be relatively safe, I would think...

Wow. 80 inches. The ski resorts around here would positively kill to have 80 inches of snow on the ground in total!!!

We have a jeep, and after the front end loader Cat with the 8' tires came through, I was able to get that out, after 2 hrs of the old scoop and throw gig.

We normally don't get much snow at all, this was just one of those 'perfect storm' type things.

They are both parts cars, my no rust car is sleeping in the garage with the furnace on.

Ahhhhhhhhhh, That's why I live in San Diego!!!! I was stationed in upstate NY when in the Navy and I had to keep my Harley outside in the winter. I used several large sheets of fiberglass to make a U shaped cover so once the snow go up high I would just tunnel out to it!!!! Don't worry spring will be here soon!

Am I the only one who saw those two beautiful creamy white lumps and thought about how at birth we all gravitate toward the breast of the mother............and in adulthood, we (the participants of this forum) also see those wonderous orbs and feel a sense of longing???

Sorry, I was watching the developments in Iraq and maybe had one more beer than I should have................

SNOW???????????????????????

God: 80 inches, I'll never complaine about the snow in N.W. OHIO again. In 1996 we had the BIG BLIZZARD I beleave 17 to 20 inches??? maybe more. Shut this area down cold, took almost a week to get back to normal. I guess just throw another log on the fire, and wait. Dave

Hey Kelly

It is going well, it was supposed to go to paint this week. The motor is done, but in Denver on the other side of the closed road. It is on all four wheels for the first time in 3 yrs. Everything worked out great. I just don't want to get too far so that when I have it painted, I can have all the stuff I want done (engine compartmetn and under the hoods and all that. Oh well.
