The two occupants in a C6 Corvette that crashed in Woodstock Sunday morning probably wish they were at the legendary rock concert instead.

The yellow Corvette suffered major front end damage after skidding off Sawkill Road, plowing across a muddy field, and winding up in a ditch around 10 a.m.

1957 Corvette Transformed from Basket Case to Bayou Cruiser

This beautiful 1957 red Corvette with white coves didn’t always look this great.

In fact, the master restorer who brought it back to life says it was “all busted up.”

As Mike McCabe of Busted Wrench Garage in Gulfport, Miss., put it, “It was a chopped up, drag racing car. It had holes in it and tires sticking out of the back.”

After taking the car apart and performing extensive “plastic surgery,” though, the classic Corvette is now a dream machine.

You know the feeling when you’re being egged on to engage the throttle and “light em up” when leaving a car show by that group of people who always congregate near the exits? We know we shouldn’t but sometimes the opportunity to show off for the crowd can be a hard thing to say no to. But you should say no because, strangely enough, bad things can happen with you stomp your right foot on the gas like the owner of this classic Corvette found out.

[VIDEO] North Texas Viper Club Blows Up a C4 Corvette with Tannerite and a .50 Caliber Machine Gun

Every year at Thanksgiving, we go up to our ancestorial stomping grounds in Southeastern Kentucky for family, food and fun. And sometimes that fun involves blowing up a pumpkin with tannerite, an explosive substance that ignites when shot with a gun.

So when I saw the North Texas Viper club using tannerite to blow up a C4 Corvette, I had to share this even if it involves the death of Corvette at the hands of a rival club. Just a couple ounces of tannerite will completely blow the kingdom come out of a pumpkin so I can only imagine what a larger amount could do to America’s favorite sports car.

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.

The three-county crime spree actually started with the suspect behind the wheel of a truck in Kendall County, Texas, but authorities say the man ditched that vehicle and stole the Stingray at gunpoint and started a house fire.
