One of Hollywood’s more colorful characters is “billboard queen” Angelyne and her pink Corvettes. We’ve featured the L.A. icon a time or two including pictures of her latest Corvette – a bright pink Corvette Stingray.
If you don’t know the story of Angelyne, she’s famous for a billboard campaign from the 1980s featuring a suggestive photo of her with along with her name and a telephone number for her fan club. Although she does have a few records and acting credits to her name, today it’s the billboards and the succession of pink Corvettes that she is known for.
So imagine our surprise (and horror) when we found out this morning that her C7 Corvette Stingray has somehow been damaged in some sort of accident.
We caught sight of Angelyne’s wrecked Corvette Stingray in a parking lot this video from a Malibu video blogger known as Fireball Tim Lawrence who was cruising the streets of Malibu when he spotted the unique Corvette at a CVS drugstore.
The damage to the rear of the car is fairly significant as the rear end looks like it took a hit right around the license plate, cracking the right side cooling vents and throwing the hatch and rear panels out of alignment. Directly under her vanity license plate shows the quad exhaust with the two right side exhaust ports pushed in about two inches more than the left site. In fact, that could be really unsafe if those exhaust ports heat up and start burning the plastic panels. The rear fascia looks like it has been taped to the rest of the car to hold it on.
Our guess is that either Angelyne was rear ended or backed into an unyielding object which caused the extensive damage to the rear of her car.
I wouldn’t worry too much though as we’re sure that Angelyne will have her Corvette Stingray back together soon. After all, this is Hollywood and driving a wrecked Corvette just won’t do.
