Part home-made convertible, part home-made snowplow: it's how some streets in Cape Breton are getting cleared of snow in style.

A video of a "redneck snowplow" clearing driveways in Whitney Pier is going viral on social media. 

Since the original video was posted by James Macdonald Sunday morning, it has racked up more than 4,500 shares and has been viewed more than a quarter-million times on Facebook.

Although a 2000 Grand Prix may not be the vehicle of choice for most commercial snowplows, the driver doesn't seem to have much trouble maneuvering snowy streets in the two-wheel drive.
