2000 Ford Taurus Wagon snow plow - Click above to watch the video after the break

Some may call it lazy; we call it resourceful. Tired of shoveling snow and apparently unable (or unwilling) to purchase a truck-mounted plow or walk-behind snow blower, Jeff Schneider of Minnesota did the only logical thing he could: mount a blade to the back bumper of his Ford Taurus Wagon. Ingenuity - It's the American way, no?

It seems that the little modification did the trick... mostly. In heavy, wet snow, the two-wheel drive (we'd say front-wheel drive, but it is backwards, after all) Taurus just can't generate the kind of traction needed to push a few hundred pounds of the fluffy white stuff any real distance. But if the snow is the soft and powdery stuff, well, look out, snow plows.

See Schneider's ingenious solution to the Minnesota winter in the video after the break.
