C4 Corvette Gets Luggage Rack Upgrade

Admit it. Most of us that drive our Corvettes regularly have had the experience of having to transport a bulky item and your Corvette is the only car available. Others choose to do by towing campers or small trailers. I came across this enterprising owner this weekend traveling south on I75 in Ocala, Florida with a solution to storage space or lack thereof in an early C4 Corvette. The best part of this solution? He was doing an easy 80 mph and the heavy traffic was no problem for the less than aerodynamic Greenwood-kitted Corvette.

While we’ve heard the story before of service technicians joyriding in customer cars, this Corvette crash was caused by none other than the owner of the dealership himself.

Corvette vs Walmart Crash Injures Two

We got a two-fer to go with yesterday’s story of a C6 Corvette crashing into an Emmy-award winning puppeteer’s home. This accident features a black 2007 Corvette driven by 75-year-old Carl Sloan of Morgan Hill, CA. Sloan and 58 year old Teenie Denise were cruising the parking lot of a local Wal-Mart when the car suddenly accelerated and crashed into the front of the store. The cause of the accident may have been due to a medical condition. Both went to the hospital and will be okay. The Corvette? Not so much…
