You are right Ige, been doing it since '79 in a ford station wagon from there a very build Firebird and many other rigs. The thing I hated the most was the placement of the E brakes on the Toyota, next to the steering column. You could Steer the rear by just using the e brake only.
As for doing this down slippery hills, it takes practice and a soft touch. Practice in a parking lot when it is snow-covered and you can slowly master this "old" technique
