I didn't actually sell it too them...

They came to me just wanting a story for the show. There was not sale.... I've had the car 37 years, and I don't think I would ever sell it on such short notice as in the show. I'd have to think about it for a long while.............................

I am not young nor am I old. I am comfortably in the middle, for now...

Having watched it a few times, I see some things that could be changed... In the episode I am in, there is only one car. In the others, there are always two. I think there is too much time in this episode messing around with those snowmobiles.... Kinda boring after a bit.

I should have started the car, and let it roar a bit, and in hindsight, they should have taken a minute or two and shown the Snow Trac in more detail, like the interior. It has 3 bench seats along the wall...

But hey the guys that did this are beginners.... A first effort if you will.

Regards, Kirk

If you come when there is no snow on the ground... Other wise it will be the Snow Trac I'd give you a ride in... It's pretty fun, but not fast...

To drive that far I would have to take the Prius so it sure would not be when there is snow on the ground.

Oh no, you drive one of those?

The tires are so small and the ground clearance is not very much. People around here try and drive them in the snow... Not so good...

But hey they do get milage from what I hear.

Yep, ground clearance sucks and the stupid traction assist takes all the power away and you lose momentum whenever it detects a wheel slip. If you could turn it off like other vehicles it would not do bad. This past Christmas eve we were visiting friends down in the middle of Pa. and it started to snow. By the time we got here it was about 6-8 inches deep and it lifted the back end off the road and turned me 180 about 5 miles from home. I ended up parking it at a neighbor I plow all the time and getting a ride from him to my place to get the Suzuki to bring the wife and dogs home. I do average 45-55 mpg and run it back and forth to the hospital and cancer center all the time. It is 52 miles one way and I would go broke driving anything else.
