OK, I’m an old guy, but I’ve got a few funny drifting stories… In this one, my buddy Kev and I were running an Alley Rally. If you’ve never heard of one, they’re generally illegal, but loads of fun. They’re run at night through the alleys in the business districts of larger cities (and, I should add, the surrounding residential areas…). They’re usually run in the dead of winter and you often have to deal with snow and ice.

In this one, we were in my Jetta on four studded Hakkas, so I had plenty of car control. Kev called “Left, NOW” and I made the turn onto a very icy, narrow residential street. Just as I straightened up the car, he said “Crap, I called that too soon!” We were coming up on an intersection, but we didn’t know if the road from the right connected to the one we needed, so I decided to do a U-turn. When we reached the intersection; I went right, cranked the wheel left and grabbed the e-brake. The car pivoted perfectly, but in the middle of the turn a police car appeared at the STOP sign on the right. I made a wild guess that I might be able to make it look like I had tried to do a left, but lost control… So, I released the e-brake, causing the Jetta’s arc to increase and it slid gently up against the curb.

The cop hit his lights, stopped in the middle of the intersection, rolled down his window and asked: “You guys all right?” I said, “Yes officer, we’re fine, but it sure is slick out here.” He switched off his lights, told us to be careful and drove off. Kev and I were laughing so hard that I had a hard time driving back to the main street. ;^)
