We just had an unfortunate reminder of why our enthusiasm for enjoying Corvettes should never, ever outweigh a need for safety.

For this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday, we’ve got a “little red Corvette” for your enjoyment. Prince may call it little, but this Grand Sport packs a big 430-horsepower wallop.
All mortals take note, there is one thing you should never, ever do, and that’s touch another person’s Corvette in any form or fashion. That is, unless (1) you’ve been given permission by the owner, (2) you’ve provided at least three solid references or referrals, and (3) signed a waiver that if the Corvette happens to sustain any damage due to your negligence, you agree to waive any and all legal rights typical granted to criminals or the mentally insane.
