Three day old big block Nova with factory tires, on city streets, in a Michigan ice storm. Walking would have been faster.
Had this experience too with posi traction, so I can attest it can be a real problem. With three or four hundred pounds of weight in the trunk the posi transforms from a slip-and-slide mobile to a get-up-and-go machine!
