Behind every Corvette winding up in a river, there’s a great story. Sounds a bit bizarre, huh? Then again, maybe not after hearing John Kramer’s account about why he drove a candy-apple-red Corvette he bought for his daughter into the Delaware River.
As bad as it looks, this could have ended up a lot worse. The 1990 Corvette, owned by Chad Wendel, was left charging when it caught on fire, nearly burning his house down.
Far from the typical keying of a car, some folks in Alabama have started turning to paint stripper to take their anger out on prized possessions.
I recently stumbled on a story that left me pondering something: at what point after an accident in a Corvette do you just call it a wrap and scrap it?
We just had an unfortunate reminder of why our enthusiasm for enjoying Corvettes should never, ever outweigh a need for safety. Over the weekend, a Corvette driver was arrested on suspicion of killing a 27-year-old in a single-car collision (different crash pictured) in the San Francisco area after it was determined he had been drinking and taking drugs.
