[VIDEO] C6 Corvette Driver Slippin and Sliding in the Snow

by Keith Cornett on February 4, 2011

This poor driver in a Silver C6 Corvette was attempting to drive on I-30 near Buckner Blvd in Dallas but the roads were proving almost too much for the 436-hp rear wheel drive sports car and this traffic-copter caught it all. His frustration rises to the point where he actually gets out of the car and shrugs his shoulders in the near defeat. But the Corvette owner isn’t defeated and soon he is back behind the wheel and slipping and sliding his way to what we hope is a nice warm garage.

[VIDEO] Corvette Catches Fire During Burnout Contest

by Keith Cornett on January 19, 2011

This video was taken at the 10th Anniversary Envy Frenzy Car Show in Kingston, NY. Let this serve as a lesson for you. You can’t put out a fuel fire with water. A good chemical-based fire extinguisher might have been able to save this car. That and turning off the ignition. Otherwise, the gas just keeps pouring out and the fire rages on.
