Tonite we'll watch a little something from the "Roaring 20's" silent film age called, "Oilfield Dodge". Before roads there were feet and horses. But there was a short period of time even after cars came along that there were still no roads. That didn't stop anyone with a car from driving however, far from it. They drove anyway... and they did it rather expertly. Try some of these maneuvers with your Leaf or Prius this weekend, then call me. I'll be loading up on stock in a towing company. :)
The secret to much of this relies on a low center of gravity, narrow gage wheels, and high ground clearance - something pretty much every vehicle owner short of a monster truck doesn't have anymore.
