You probably guessed it was cold in Buffalo again this winter. But holy crap, this poor little Mitsubishi Lancer-turned-icicle looks like a Krispy Kreme donut that fell into the vat of whatever’s behind the counter at Cinnabon.

That, or maybe something you’d crack open to find dinosaur DNA in.

WKBW reporter Matthew Bové spotted the car near Route 5 in Buffalo, New York on what looks like a late-night weather reporting mission. Looks like “next to Lake Erie” was a particularly terrible place to park last night.

“I don’t even know if pictures do it justice of just how insane this image is,” Bové reported to ABC. “It seems like there are several inches of… thick ice around the car.”

Hope whoever’s walking back to this thing has a remote starter! And that their water to anti-freeze ratio is on point.

The car should be alright once it thaws out though, with the exception of possibly a dead battery and a little express-rusting that might be underway place under the plastic.

Don’t forget to dress warm, because nature is still stronger than you.
