In the blink of an eye, your beautiful vintage Corvette can become the victim of a crash worthy of being shown on the Internet.
Just ask the driver of this C3 that’s the subject of a video posted on Corvette Forum by member spikebot 81.
Watch the tape and you’ll see a dually pickup truck pull out of a business and stop in either the left lane or the turn lane of a four- or five-lane road. It’s hard to tell for sure how wide the road is from this angle. Three vehicles are shown passing the truck on its right side at normal speed, and then a Mustang comes up from behind, grows leery of the truck and slows down considerably, and then guns it to roar past the pickup which is seen slowly picking up speed and getting ready to turn.
That’s when the unsuspecting Corvette driver comes up at what seems to be a normal speed, and the truck clips its rear end, sending the ‘Vette spinning out of control – squealing its way to a narrow miss with a utility pole but climbing up a guy wire and making a horrible crashing sound all the while.
Corvette Forum blames the truck driver for the crash and is asking its readers how they feel about the cause. Count one vote here that it was definitely the pickup driver’s fault. He should have been able to see in his mirror that traffic was still advancing on him and should never have turned into the path of the Corvette (or any other vehicle coming up on him) until it was all clear.
Let’s just hope no one was hurt in the crash, and further let’s hope this classic Corvette will soon be back to tip-top condition and out on the road again.
