Back when I was in high school, we had an FFA teacher (that’s Future Farmers of America for you city folks) who made the same lame joke every year during the annual awards ceremony when presenting his outstanding student. He’d always say something to the effect of “there aren’t any students out standing in my field!”

That joke immediately crossed my mind when I saw this “outstanding” Black Corvette Stingray which somehow ended up in a soybean field in Missouri.

Let’s hope that the driver of this C6 Corvette makes a full recovery after a serious accident Monday morning in Missouri.

Police are still investigating why the 63-year-old driver, of Oran, Mo., rammed into the back of a tractor-trailer at a traffic light on South Kingshighway near the Southern Expressway in Cape Girardeau, Mo., a police spokesman said.

What took a 65-year-old Staunton, Missouri man a lifetime to collect was destroyed overnight Thursday in a fire that gutted his two garages containing three Corvettes and related memorabilia.

“This was my whole life,” an emotional John Hibbeler told stltoday.com reporter Kim Bell. “It took me 45 years to get to this position, and I lost it all in one night.”

He lost it all thanks to a small brush fire that got out of control, fire officials said.
