Nebraska family built a lifelike Ford Mustang out of snow, and a state trooper gave it a ticket

A family in northwest Nebraska built a Ford Mustang out of snow so lifelike that a state trooper gave it a ticket.

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.
