A family in northwest Nebraska built a Ford Mustang out of snow so lifelike that a state trooper gave it a ticket…..sort of….
During Saturday’s snow in Chadron, Jason Blundell, a 43-year-old concrete plant manager, and his two teenage kids shoveled neighboring driveways into a massive mound and created a work of art. They spent five hours sculpting a clone of the 1967 Ford Mustang GTA that they store in their garage, then they posted a photo to Facebook.
That caught the eye of Nebraska State Patrol Sgt. Mick Downing, who attends the same church as the family. He drove by and recorded himself giving the sculpted car a pretend tow notice, then posted the video on the patrol’s social media channels.
Blundell, his 17-year-old daughter Shelby (like the Mustang) and his 15-year-old son Spencer (not like the Mustang) used a skid loader, concrete wood floats, shovels, ice scrapers and a squirt bottle to create the Mustang, now known on social media as the #SnowPony. Spencer even measured the real car in the garage so they would get the proportions just right.
