Racinbob in 1982

I found this picture while cleaning the basement. It’s from 1982 when I owned a ‘75 Alfetta Berlina 4 door which isn’t the best winter car for Wisconsin.
My Grandfather had my uncle’s ‘71 V8 Maverick in his garage because my uncle (who is 4 years older than me) has more of an interest in VW buses and beetles than his Maverick. So after a quick negotiation I acquire it for a pittance.
Fast forward and I am doing my first Icekhana and realize said Maverick has the directional stability of a claw hammer on ice. This was because it had a big 302 V8 in a 2200 pound car. This resulted in its center of gravity being about a 2 feet behind the hood ornament.
I think I spun every turn, but boy it was fun!

But you actually tried to race it on ice? Or was it just unnecessary ice hooning?
