I don't do the F-Book but I saw this on Jalopnik. Still not sure why this is a story that people care about.

I imagine the driver of this car doesn't really want their fifteen minutes of fame, or the new and improved insurance rates they might see soon.

Some people have different cars along with corvairs. One of my many cars is a 1980 c3 corvette . I drive my corvair more. Glad to see that they made a new corvette other than red. Red sucks!!!!!! It'll be on Co-parts and sell for more than a showroom new one with salvage title.

These are not 'out' yet! This is a test mule! Not good to take out other vehicles as well as this! My Customer has His name in to be able to order one.

One site I saw this on noted the Vette may be totaled with the damage pictured.
A $60k vehicle totaled with that amount of damage would be sad.

Don't all these "pre-release" demo cars get crushed or used for destructive testing anyway?

Not the first one wrecked - More than 1 wrecked on proving ground property within last couple of years. Does happen.

It is a GM development vehicle on test development trip. Car # on windshield. I guess the cars are a few months away from being available for purchase. Usually 6 - 12 months after the "official" unveiling before for sale.

This would be a non saleable pre production build. All development vehicles must be destroyed - some parts may be sold off them. Liability if any of these get sold as even if 1 hole was drilled for something and vehicle involved in accident then lawsuit potential. Also development/pre production vehicles - even if 100% correct in content and fully plant built, are not legal by govt. certification standards. Will have "x" vin so no way to register them.
