Baker City is a beautiful area! Love the combination of mountains and desert! Plus the dry climate!

xxllmm4 I had a friend with an Anglia and MT Sportsmans, SCARY!!

If someone had some organizational skills it would sure be cool to get some informal cruise-ins together this winter.

1971BB427 My previous tires were MT Sportsmans, and they didn't hook up in wet or dry conditions. I could smoke them forever if I wanted to keep my foot in the throttle, and 1st-2nd shifts were scarey! The short wheelbase Austin would jump sideways on a 1-2 shift, and get completely out of control.
I still have them on my '71 Camaro, but the longer wheelbase makes it more driveable under power, but they still don't hook up.

59RAMBLERSUPERWAGON I was refering to Oregon hot rodders running the Mickey Thompson Sportsman Pro tires on their rods, the tread is much more condusive to wet conditions. Its a happy medium between wrinkle wall drag tire, and some sense of tread in wet conditions.

In Oregon it's almost always cold when it's wet!
It was in the high 40's at the time, and miserable with no wipers on my gasser! But had to try and see what happened when I got off the freeway and stopped at a light. They hooked much better than I expected and the little car got moving with very little tire spin.

Not to get too OT, but my M&H drag radials work great in the rain! I've been caught out with them on a rainy day, and was impressed with how they hook.

1971BB427 Well I'm up north in Portland area with Badrat, and I too am one of those fair weather drivers. I probably put more miles on my hotrods each year than most people put on their regular cars, but I do have a couple that don't see much rain if I can avoid it!
And I don't own a car trailer. I do borrow one when I race my street legal gasser occasionally.
