2013 HEMI Ram 1500 Snowy & Muddy Off-Road Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Ram Express Quad Cab 1500 pickup is
a big beast to drive off-road. In fact the HEMI 5.7L engine does little to
help the big Ram tackle the mud and snow. But of course the Ram's 4X4 drive
train and substantial ground clearance makes for a fine off-road ride. In
another exclusive TFLcar video review we take the newest Ram into the
Colorado Rocky Mountains to see how it does when the road get's snowy,
muddy and steep? Does the new Ram have what it takes to take on the
Rockies? Watch this fun and informative off-road review to find out.
Dodge flys off road into 15 feet of water
longview daily newpaper route owner falls asleep at 3 am last week .
State Patrol called several tow operators all declined the tow unless
state would supply a diver . The State gave the owner of the car one week
to get the car out of the river . If he did not get it out the state would
hire a recovery company to do it and then bill the owner . I told the owner
if he could get a chain onto the car I would make an attempt to remove it
. This wreck happened 60 miles east of my shop in Wakiakum County . The
owner Greg and his friend Josh did all the rigging I just told them
where to hook the chains . They save a lot of maney by doing all the
dirty work . The owner was excited to find all his cash and coins were
wtill in the trunk of the car . He had oabot $50 in change and cash in a
box locked in the trunk . He went off the wesst side of the bridge with so
much momentum that the car made it within 8 feet of the east bank . before
the sank Greg got out on the roof and jumped to the shore . He only got
his shoes wet . The river is at least 150 feet across . He also was
wearing his seat belt and upon impact the airbags deployed . The damage
to the windshield happened when the car hit the water . Greg is a very
luck man .
