Re: Front tow hook thread -
I took my GSR Lancer (AWD turbo sedan) on the beach at port maquarie. Was having a hoot, until the sand got too soft. Ended up getting bogged at the low water mark with the tide coming in. Managed to find soem guys in a hilux with a chain to tow me out. I hooked the chain on in between waves. Big wave hit, car started floating out, only the chain stopped it going to sea with me in it. Got off the beach and the only damage was sand in a lower idler pulley (fixed under warranty).
All I could think about when trying to find someone to tow me out, was how I was going to explain it to the insurance company. the car was only 6 months old at the time.
The things we do when we are young and stupid.
P.S I feel sorry for whoever bought that car, as every time I washed it there was a pile of sand under the car for the 3 years I owned it for.
