NEWS: The most famous car in Switzerland - frozen to the ground

Post by Andeavor on Wed Feb 08, 2012 1:31 am



Jean-Christophe was late to a friend's birthday party in Geneva when he finally found a parking spot near the lakeside. Four hours later when he returned, the car was frozen to the ground. The water from the lake kept sprinkling onto the car and anything nearby covering it with a strong layer of ice, unable to break at these temperatures we currently experiencing in Europe.

He couldn't get into his car at all, which forced him to take a taxi back home. The car is still on the same spot and has become somewhat of a local attraction. Jean-Christophe isn't worried since his wife has a car of her own, however he had to cancel his skiing trip last weekend because the skis are trapped in the roof box.

Would take a mighty powerful hair drier to unfreeze that car. I'm wondering when it eventually defrosts if it will even be drivable.

I perhaps poorly worded what I meant. I wasn't referring to the engine or anything as I'd imagine that it's mostly just surface ice.

Was just wonder what would happen to those wheels after being frozen solid like that. But still in hindsight, I suppose that as well probably wouldn't do much if anything.

Wasn't thinking to hard at the time.
