So nice of a?

One of my MA students, Thomas de France, mentioned a new sentence type today, one that I had never come across before, which he would like to hear people’s opinions on:

  1. you have so nice of a car
  2. this is too big of a house for me.

How common is this construction? What kind of people use it? Would you use it yourself? If not, why not? Any other comments?
