[VIDEO] Mystery Car Taunts a Corvette Z06

This video shows a Corvette C6 Z06 (as well as a yellow C5 caught in the crossfire) having to play catch-up for the most part with a mystery car that some viewers believe to be a Nissan GT-R.

Several times, it’s amazing that they were able to avoid collisions with other cars.

[VIDEO] C5 Z06 Driver Goes Off-Course While Attempting a Burnout at Dallas Cars and Coffee

Here is yet another case of a Corvette owner trying to show off and failing miserably but being very fortunate at the same time. This video comes from a Cars and Coffee get together in Dallas.
