Driveway snowed upon? no problem! just flip the switch to redirect the exhaust fumes forward. all the hot exhaust will help melt the snow in fromt of you. Driveway buried in two feet of snow? put her in neutral, rev the engine and activate the spark plugs drilled into the front exaust tips for an instant 20-ft flame thrower!

also useful for arson.

       did you vote for your own post?? front exhaust it a bad idea.   

       -"a poor-mans snow plow"-did you expect to go 30 some mph and melt snow   

       -it's illeagal to put spark plugs in your exhaust   

       -you'll get water and anything in your pipes going 60 mph   

       -and you create more back pressure than your engine can probally handle at 60 mph

       //did you expect to go 30 some mph and melt snow// please note that i only mentioned a driveway   

       //it's illeagal to put spark plugs in your exhaust// please note that it's not illegal to have spark plugs in your exhaust if you arent on a road   

       //you'll get water and anything in your pipes going 60 mph, -and you create more back pressure than your engine can probally handle at 60 mph// please note that there was a switch to go from back to front.

       The sparkplug idea (originally from the online terrorist handbook) will not work on todays cars. Emissions are just not flammable enough.

       I was hoping you were going to say 'front exhaust--, cause if you have to breathe your own fumes, you won't drive anywhere, so less pollution,' -- I wanted to give that a fishbone. You can have it instead.

       The reasons that the exhaust would not be flammable is due to the cat's, if the front exhaust didnt have cats you could shoot flames.... although I dont think they would be quite as big as you are thinking

       The idea is originally from hot rodders in the 20's.

       If this did work, wouldn't it have about the same effect as spraying down your driveway with a water hose? ... It'll be an ice rink by the time you come home.
