Automotive: GM to crush 120 new Corvettes

GM is planning to crush all of the severely damaged C8 Corvettes from last months storms in Kentucky and other surrounding states, rather than taking the chances of having potentially defective cars end up in peoples’ hands.

In December, a tornado badly damaged parts of Chevrolet’s Bowling Green, Kentucky plant – where Corvettes are produced. It’s estimated that about 120 of those new rear-engine C8 Corvettes were damaged. Factory staff are still inspecting the remaining completed cars to make sure they are okay to be shipped out.
