Accident

[VIDEO] Corvette Loses it on the Freeway

by Keith Cornett on March 18, 2010

Notice the dealer plates on the car?? Heck of a save, but there is a reason for traction control and not hooning a 436-horsepower rear wheel drive sports car in the rain!

This poor guy was trying to save his C4 Corvette from a flooded barn. In the process of “yahooing the Corvette through the lake” he hydro-locked the engine. Comments from the camera lady range from “You got sooo close” to “Mike, are those your work shoes?”

I kind of feel bad for the guy. He just wanted to go fast. Did you hear those tires when he stomped on it?

Corvettes Among Those Damaged at Russo & Steele Auction

That line of thunderstorms that rolled through Scottsdale last week did a huge amount of damage to the classic and rare cars that were to be sold at the Russo and Steele auction. Wind gusts of over 50 mph destroyed two of the tents that housed the cars, but luckily no people were seriously injured. After the fire department cleared the area, consignors were let back inside to view the aftermath and for many of these Corvette owners, it sure wasn’t pretty.

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!

This video is wrong on so many levels that I don’t know where to begin. I’d wager that most of us (me included) have done something stupid in our Corvettes. But to then have your moment of stupidity uploaded to youtube for all posterity is a badge of shame I’d wish on no one.
