Via MTL Blog, photos of the work done by Simon Laprise, a machinist in the city, were posted to Reddit of a auto made entirely of snow seemingly "parked" on the illegal side of a residential street.

Viral images posted to Simon Laprise's Facebook page show a full-size sculpture of a DeLorean.

A confused policeman stopped to see if it was real, as cars aren't allowed to be kept in a snow removal zone in Canada.

The police soon came to investigate because it was parked was in a snow removal zone, only to discover after some time that the vehicle was made entirely of snow.

When police arrived to issue a citation, they got a good laugh out of it.

Simon Laprise, a 33-year-old machinist and cabinet maker, told VICE he was the man behind the prank.

"It was a lovely day", Laprise told VICE.

"To me snow is a great free material to sculpt anything out of", he continued.

Laprice told VICE he did not actually see the police arrive at his snow auto, so he is not sure why two officers went to see the vehicle.

By the next morning, snowplows had removed the sculpture from the snow removal zone.
