With six inches of fresh snow that fell over the weekend, it was all hands on deck at a Davenport car dealership Monday morning.

Bundled up to fight the bitter cold, about 17 employees started clearing snow and ice off some 800 hundred cars. They also had to move the vehicles from their parking spaces in order to plow the dealership lot. It was a daunting task that even had owner out working.

"It's probably the least, the thing we like to do the least in the 12 months we're open," said Eric Dresing of Green Buick GMC. "You gotta get them cleaned off because It's pretty tough to sell them with three or four inches of snow on them."

Using long-handled snow brushes, they expected to continue scraping the snow off cars and trucks into the afternoon.
