Not everyone loves Corvettes as much as we do, apparently.
Just ask the owners of this 2000 Corvette convertible.
They’ve had to call Fort Smith, Ark., police twice in the past two weeks, the first time when they discovered bullet holes in their Corvette as well as a truck in the driveway.
At least two C3 Corvettes were among the vehicles damaged in a suspected arson in late December at a well-known classic car auto dealership in Miami, Florida.
The fire, which was set in three places, caused $1 million in damages to Ted Vernon Specialty Autos at 8301 N.W. 7th Ave., but it could have been much worse.

It’s hard to look on the bright side when the owners of a 1991 fully restored Corvette are standing there, looking at the fire-ravaged remains of their pride and joy.
But for Chad and Carrie Wendel of Morristown, Minn., the fire that broke out last Thursday morning could have been much worse.
We already knew that the C7 Corvette was hot. The car has taken home numerous industry awards and over 37,000 of them were built.
They’ve scorched the competition in various comparisons both on the track and off.
Over the last year or so we’ve seen countless wrecked C7’s. This one is easily the crispiest one we’ve seen yet. The entire car is well done like the finest filet mignon at your local steak house. It resembles the remains of Chernobyl after the 1980’s reactor fire and subsequent meltdown. In fact the only remaining components we can make out after the carbeque are the metallic components like the wheels, miscellaneous frame bits, and the mufflers.
The good news about this Corvette garage fire is that no one was injured and firefighters managed to save the rest of the house from going up in flames, too.
The bad news is that the C6 ‘Vette is apparently going to need some serious restoration after being “heavily involved” in the garage fire, according to Senior Captain Charles Martin of the Houston (Texas) Fire Department.
We’ve told you sad news in the past about Corvettes being gutted by fires.
Today we have some good news, though, about a 1970 Corvette that was saved from ruin Saturday by quick-acting firefighters in Carmichael, Calif., who moved it out of the garage while flames were shooting out of the roof of a house.
