Mother Nature’s down with body mods


If you were to poll 100 native San Diegans, at least 75% would agree that snow is just a myth (the other 25% are snowboarders, and we really don’t take them that seriously). However, outside of our unnaturally pleasant 619/858/760 area codes, the celestial dandruff is an all-too-common annoyance.

Now, snow and cars don’t normally get along. The one usually causes the other to skid across highway lanes like a greased-up ten-year-old on a downhill slip ‘n slide. Sometimes, though, the two place nicely together. Jalopnik recently compiled a list of ten cars modded by Mother Nature. Lesson learned: if you’re thinking about bolting on a body kit but are unsure about how it might look, you can always park overnight in Fargo and take a look at the results.

VIDEO: Ken Block’s STi on SnowCat Tracks!!


We’ve seen this before, but only during a brief 15-second clip taken with a cell phone, which really isn’t much to go on.  But now the day has come where Ken Block shows the world his top secret project.  You could say that Ken Block has built the worlds biggest sled, or maybe even that it’s the boldest application of Subaru’s legendary AWD system.  If it were me, I’d call it the ultimate ski lift.
