No, he's turning his Bimmer into a monster truck. With a snow plow on the front, that is. And tire chains, of course. And the back wheels are tank tracks. And he's getting one of those horns like you see on big trucks so people will move out of his way, but nobody will actually be on the road when he is, because nobody else's car can be. So he will be doing his shrimp and plant deliveries himself during snowstorms in the future. In case you didn't figure it out by now, I'm just writing this to keep myself occupied while he's doing whatever he really is doing to his car, which is probably much lamer than what I just described #swag
