    I get to work and notice these two ruts dug into the parking lot (packed gravel, not loose). So I ask what happened.

    Appearently some guy who drove in to deliver a radiator got the delivery truck (like a little 2wd truck) stuck.

    They said he went to take off and he spun the rear tires and dug down, then he pushed in the clutch, reved higher and spun more, then eventually just dumped the clutch and floored the truck and finally got out of his ruts, spraying dirt and gravel everywhere.

    The owner of the shop and a co-worker were standing right there in sight of the guy, stunned at how stupid someone could be. I wish I could have seen it.

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif actually with the 2wd Dodge I just picked up I got stuck on a flat level driveway...























    Something about dragging a frame with a bed on it and no wheels might have had something to do with it though /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
