The “accident” at the end of this video has been up on YouTube for a while but it was just today I learned that the driver had picked up the C5 Corvette Z06 from a dealer and was on a test drive. In this extended version, the Corvette driver is being an absolute ass by tailgating, fishtailing and doing donuts on public roads leading up to the crash.

The announcer says the dealer decided not to press charges which leads me to wonder if they ever saw this tape? Well one thing is for certain. Unlike the guy who fried the clutch in a Z06, our driver here at least knows how to do a burnout!

Barn Find: Flared C3 Corvette Put Out to Pasture

Technically, this Corvette is more of a field find than a barn find. The early C3 Corvette with 55 gallon drums masquerading as rear fender flares was spotted on JalopyJournal.com. The Corvette, along with several other older Chevrolets and few trucks, have been parked out in the woods somewhere in Georgia for decades.
