The next time a hard frost leaves you battling away with an ice scraper on your car windscreen, spare a thought for the owner of this car, turned into a large, car-shaped block of ice by winter weather in Buffalo, New York.

"This is a frozen-solid car," said Matt Bove, weatherman for Buffalo news channel WKBW.

"I don't even know if pictures do it justice ... it seems like there are several inches of thick ice surrounding the car. You could see what was once a mirror, you can see there's a spoiler at the back."

"I really don't know how they're eventually going to move this car. This is an image that'll stick with me for your and years to come."


The picture has been shared more than 7000 times since it was shared on the WKBW Facebook page earlier today.

The area around Buffalo has been hit by severe cold weather in the past week, and snow showers are expected to continue in the coming days.
