The best news is that no one was injured Sunday when a man crashed a stolen red C7 convertible after leading police on a chase that reached speeds of 130 mph.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the Corvette Stingray, which suffered major front end damage after catching fire following the crash.

Back a few years ago, I was restoring my dad’s 1970 Impala and had taken it to a friend’s house to have the motor rebuilt.
