BEST CHEAP THRILL - 2004
Let's face it, winter around here is one long, death-defying stunt. There are wind chills that would send your average Inuit scurrying for south Florida, and the grit-encrusted mountains of snow that swallow cars and small children. Last but not least, there is the ice that turns Twin Cities roads into a demolition derby for three months. Whether you're whipping crazy-eights in a parking lot or careening home on the freeway, winter driving is cheaper and more thrilling than the State Fair Tilt-o-Whirl. Plus, there's just nothing like the chance of wrapping your beater around a stop sign to make one feel fully alive.
