Attention, potential customers for the new mid-engine 2020 Corvette:
You might want to consider checking that box for the optional wheel locks.
The owner of this C8 Corvette (i.e., General Motors) apparently skimped on those said wheel locks, and the car wound up on blocks minus the tires and wheels.
Car and Driver says they received this photo that shows the forlorn Stingray in a Detroit neighborhood known as the West Village.
The magazine jokingly points out that anyone looking for a set of C8 wheels and tires at a cheap discount might want to check Craigslist in Detroit.
The theft is really no joking matter since the thieves left the rear end of the Corvette resting on the ground and may have damaged the car in the process.
Car and Driver is taking a poll of its readers, asking “Who do you blame for this? The criminals for stealing the tires or The driver for street-parking the car.”
So far, the thieves are getting more than two-thirds of the blame.
