Ice in Louisiana?

I'm finally getting around to putting up these pictures from all the ice we got here a couple of weeks ago. I took them on my phone so they aren't the best quality but they'll do.









My buddy's new 5.7 Challenger. Another friend of mine got a Camaro SS last year with the 6.2 so it can get pretty fun around here when we don't have much to do

How are your wheels holding up? The clear coat on mine started to peel right before I sold it. Always made sure not to use any harsh chemicals on them too.

Thanks TN. It's always nice to know someone else likes all the work and money I put into my truck lol

KLC, they seem to be holding up pretty well so far. I haven't noticed anything wrong with the clear coat. I've had them since August. I wish I had more time to keep them clean, but it's pretty hard with school going like it is right now. Maybe I can get around to it next weekend. What did you use to clean them?

Haha I know I don't have anything on y'all when it come to ice and snow. Everyone down here freaks out when we get flurries lol. As far as the Challenger is concerned, I know he had some stuff custom ordered for it so I guess that's where the wheels came from. I know he had the stripe put on after he got it in too.

It's all good. I've never seen real snow here. Wouldn't mind going up there sometime to be a part of it though. The most we ever got here was bout 3 inches a few years ago.

Yeah I don't really know much about the Challengers as far as options and whatnot. I'll try to get some pics of my other friend's Camaro when he brings it back over here. So far the Challenger hasn't been able to keep up with it. Not enough power in that 5.7 for all the weight

The odds are probably in your favor. In Washington, it'd probably start raining right when your tee time started lol

With the exception of last weekend, it's only rained late in the week or on the weekend for the last 6 weeks or so. I need it to rain Monday/Tuesday so it's dried out when I want to do stuff on the weekend.

Yeah that would be nice. Up here you can only count on it being dry on the weekends for maybe a couple months out of the year if that haha
