CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) — Wintry weather didn’t keep a Rhode Island man from driving through town in his topless convertible.
WPRI-TV reports the roof on John Pratt’s convertible Mercedes Benz has been broken for about a month. He tried to get the lipstick red luxury car to the repair shop Thursday morning, as a massive storm dumped more than a foot of snow in parts of the state.
But his chilly open-air ride turned into an icy predicament when his car got stuck. Onlookers took video, which then made the rounds on social media .
The episode left the Cranston man and his car covered in snow.
Pratt blames his 16-year-old son for the broken roof. He says he doesn’t mind the trouble because people got a few laughs out of it.
