We know we’re guilty of sharing the occasional street racing video and its almost like a guilty pleasure of ours to hear those Corvettes revving up and driving hard after three beeps. We know its wrong, like checking out the latest leaked celebrity nude photos. It’s not like we go searching for them. They just seem to find us. But I digress…

Not every street race ends safely and it can be an educational experience to share the what happens when street racing goes bad story. To that end, we bring you this video that shows what can go wrong and how fast that wrong can come if you decide to street race your Corvette.

This street race starts out the same as most others do. Two high powered vehicles pace each other ready to have themselves a little speed contest. What’s different about this situation comes after both drivers mash the gas. The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 immediately breaks traction as the rear wheels spin free.

The good news is police found a red 2003 Corvette that was stolen in Moses Lake, Washington last Thursday morning.

The bad news is by that time, the alleged thief had crashed the car through a fence and into the back yard of a house in the 8800 block of Hillcrest Drive in Moses Lake.

[ACCIDENT] New Owner Finds Out His Corvette was on a Crashed Auto Transporter

Back in 1989, I ordered my second new Corvette – a 1989 red on red coupe.

My girlfriend at the time and now my wife of 25 years (our anniversary is July 15, coincidentally) Cindy worked at a day care center.

She knew, of course, that I had ordered a new Corvette and just happened to be looking out the window at work one afternoon when she saw a truckload of Corvettes pass by – with a shiny red one on the back! In those days, they didn’t come giftwrapped in a white cover like the C7s!

“I think I just saw your Corvette pass by!” she called excitedly to tell me.

Sure enough, it was.

Fast forward to last weekend, and classic car collector Luigi Capilupi had a similar moment – but just one that wasn’t quite as happy for the owner as my own story.
