Lottery Winner Promises Wife New Convertible Corvette
Michael Scarlett just won $377,241 in a North Carolina lottery. He has no plans to stop working, but Scarlett is going to buy his wife a new convertible Corvette.
Is this a case of art imitating life, or some random Hollywood fluke? Given all the discussions we’ve been having about Corvette crashes, this strikes an ironic chord. In a ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ sneak peek, things take a terrible turn when Dr. Derek Shepherd (played by actor and racing driver Patrick Dempsey) encounters an aggressive C6 Corvette Z06 driver.
It’s hard to imagine a more uplifting Corvette story than that of former IndyCar driver Sam Schmidt’s recent Long Beach track run in a C7.
We’ve come across some pretty strange Corvettes over the years, and we can say with conviction that they don’t get much wilder than this C3 that was featured in the 1975 movie ‘Death Race 2000.’
