[ACCIDENTS] 1978 Corvette Pace Car vs Semi Truck

This modified Corvette may or may not be one of the 6,502 original Indy 500 Pace Car replicas built in 1978, but it certainly took the brunt when rear ended by a semi truck in Boise, Idaho.

The collision of truck vs Corvette happened last week on I-85 East about nine miles from the Idaho-Oregon border.

With the chrome air breather sticking out the hood and the roll bar installed, you would think this Corvette was built for speed. Instead, Idaho State Police say the Corvette was traveling under the posted speed limit when it was rear ended and forced off the road.

Two occupants in the Corvette were transported to a hospital in Boise where they were treated and released.

Do you think this is the real deal? Or does the blower give it away as an impostor? Head over to the Forum and sound off!
