D**m that sucks! Looked like a nice shed too. Sorry, I could not pass that up.
Not many folks can claim that a building fell on their car. Hope he makes out OK with the insurance.

CBC did an interview with the owner. The Corvette was a 1984 and the owner, Glenn Petten of Paradise, NL, was building the shed so he could do some work on his car.

"I was building the garage to put the car in to do some work on her. I guess I've got a lot of work to do now," said Petten.

What work? That C4 is totalled! Some good parts left for sure, but it will be at the auction sale in a few months. The shed looks like it came out OK. Tip it back and anchor the sucker down this time!!!

If it was a C5, I'd bet the big azz end would have held that shed up and hardly any damage would have been done. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

poor 84 the owner should have built a garage instead of a shed to work on the car!

Default The good news - it was an 84

Just think of the problems that shed just saved him, now go get one with an lt1 and you will be better off! And this isn't really joking, that cross fart is a nightmare.
