Hard to see for sure, but those don't look like GM logos on the centre caps. Almost looks like a Lincoln Zephyr.

I was thinking Ford 500, but it was a guess.

Hmm I'm curious what happened. Getting stuck in a snow bank, other than asphyxiation, can't do any damage. Perhaps he dropped a cigarette? Hmm.. lol my brains a turnin.
