Neon snowplow.

This actually happened to me around Thanksgiving. I drove my Dodge Neon toad to a local Walmart in Maryland. I backed into a parking space and as I exited the car, a man approached me and asked if my tow bars were for attaching a snowplow. I'm not one to be outdone by stupidity so I replied "Yes sir I attach the plow, inflate the air shocks, and put it in 4 wheel drive. It does a decent job of pushing snow". The man just nodded his head and continued into the store.

That wasn't stupidity, it was ignorance. By now he is no longer ignorant about a Neon used for plowing snow, much to his chagrin.
I would have done as you, that was just too good to pass up.

You should have added the Bill Engvall line, "Here's your sign."

If I lived in snow I might add a blade to a tow bar attachment just to clear the driveway. ..

I bet there is a video on utube..

A base plate is designed for pulling a car, not plowing. You'd have to fabricate a lifting mechanism to raise and lower the blade, a pivot to angle the plow from one side or the other, etc. After a bit of plowing, I'd be very suspect of the base plate's strength for towing again.

Besides, snow shoveling is good exercise!

Same thing happened to me. I arrived at a Motorhome dealer in out Honda Accord that had the base plate tabs showing. A salesman came out and was trying to strike up a conversation when he pointed at the tabs and said "you plow snow with that Honda?" I asked him "Are you brand new at selling motorhomes?" He was....second day on the job!

Buicks can plow snow.
