If you’ve ever wondered what the inside of a C5 Corvette door looks like, here’s your chance.
This black Z06 was involved in a two-car collision in Canada a couple weeks ago. The crash sent the Corvette through the backyard of a Nepean home, leaving the front half of the car under the fence like a dog trying to dig his way under.

You see, George Talley of Detroit, Michigan, offers up a reason to look at the glass as half full.
His 1979 Corvette was parked on Jefferson Avenue 33 years ago when someone swiped it.
It’s that time of year again!
