So the car wins, for ever and ever, right? Tell that to the driver of a massive tanker truck that slid off the road during what looks like a terrific snow storm.

Hit the jump to watch what could be an Amish man and his pack of powerful Clydesdales pull a shining example of modern machinery out of the ditch. If you click through quickly we'll refrain from boring you with a plethora of lame "horsepower" puns or quips about 16-leg-drive beating all-wheel-drive any day of the week. Don't make us count to three. Still here? Fine: turns out all the horse power you really need can be counted on just one hand.
