This yellow 1973 Corvette crashed into the Quality Inn and Suites on Marketview Drive in Champaign, Illinois late Tuesday morning.

Although the hotel was structurally sound following the accident, the same can’t be said for the C3 Corvette. The driver was issued a ticket for improper lane usage.

We got a little bit of drama happening to one of our Corvette brothers in the Netherlands.

1980 Corvette Stolen and Crashed on Route 66

For many teen drivers, a Corvette is a dream car that they hope they will one day own. For Kachina Village, Arizona teen Mitchell Mohler Jr, it was a goal made possible by shoveling snow and doing other jobs which raised several thousand dollars. His Dad kicked in the rest and together they purchased a restored 1980 Corvette. That dream of Corvette ownership has since turned into a nightmare when the Corvette was stolen from a car show and crashed on Route 66.
