I HATE VERMONT!!!! :bash: ARGH! so yah i come home and noticed that my tires were sinking a little so i thought ok i'll just start it up and pull it ahead a bit... Well it's parked at the inlaws house right off there muddy driveway and well long story short, The car is now being supported by the frame on the ground... The irritating thing is this happened in one day. The ground underneath is frozen still and all around it's all soft and sunk. So basiclly i need to have it pulled out and not sure what i can attatch too. I was going to use tow strap but didn't want to risk yanking anything off. I can't just shovel it out due to the frozen mud underneath the car...(i tried)

I always wrap a strap around the front motor mount. I used my Duster to yank my wife's car out this year already. :bang head

wrap around the K frame, and pull steady, no jerking. Buy some 2 x 12s next time and cut them 3' long. Then pull the car onto them in the winter and cover it with a cover that is water proof.

These cars are too old for water damage, a good cover is like $25 and another $20 in lumber. A good idea.

also when they sink and freeze you can really damage the car trying to drive it out. The tires freeze in there holes, ugly.

Yah i ended up shoveling for two days getting dirt out from the frame enough i could jack up each side and i happen to have some long rough sawn planks... (the car was resting on the frame basicly) I don't plan on being here next year... Just couldn't believe it happend over night really. the day before i started it up drove it down the road, next day i get home from work... stuck.. GRR I'm having two minor rust holes fixed soon from the previous owner cheaping out and not fixing it properly... Thankfully there not too big and right over the framerail. My guess it was because the guy had no floor mats and the water just settled.
