Despite the Corvette being named after a boat, that’s doesn’t make it one as the owner of this 2014 Corvette Stingray unfortunately learned the hard way.
We don’t have any details as to the numbskull who actually tried to traverse this river in a road, but our friends at the National Corvette Museum’s Insurance Agency who posted the photo on their facebook page remind us that they do indeed insure new Corvettes as well as the classics.
Seriously, just the thought of rain hitting a Corvette is enough to send many owners scurrying home to get their cars under cover. But not this Stingray owner. Nope. He sees the water level reaching the top of the road’s guardrails and decided to go for it!
In defense of the driver, the water level was probably less that what is shown in the pic when he made his ill-advised crossing attempt. But it doesn’t take long for the water to make its way halfway up the doors.
So let this be a lesson to those who think it’s just a little water covering the road…what could go wrong? This!
