Default Drunk Driver Crashes Into New Corvettes at a Miami Chevy Dealership

Earlier this month, a drunk driver crashed into three Corvette Grand Sports sitting on the lot at Tropical Chevrolet in Miami Shores. The driver wasn't seriously injured but we can't say the same about the Grand Sports:

That's one way to get rid of a few GS's.

Send the silver one to Wolfdogs, I'm sure he can work his magic with Zaino. (Yeah the car looks screwed).

Red one looks badly damaged in the other pics also. It will be interesting to see how these vehicles sell.

It's not like they're flying off the lots. Hell, the Dealer probably needs the insurance payout so much, he'll start sponsoring a local Happy Hour if sales keep dropping.

I am glad that no one was standing next to these cars and looking at them when that jerk ran off the road.
