You know that saying “there are a few certainties in life: death, taxes, and sucky airline food”? Well, now you can add driving a Corvette C4 from a flooded barn straight into leg-high waters.
This poor chap decided to buck common sense by doing exactly what he shouldn’t have done, and as a result, his lovely Corvette was the victim of his ill-fated decision.
In all fairness to this man, he did consider other options before plunging his Corvette into the water, and while his ideas ranged from the weird (using a piece of plywood as a ramp) to the weirder (using a canoe?) we still have to give him his due. It takes a lot of guts and determination to launch his Corvette straight into flooded waters surrounding the barn.
Unfortunately, his final decision to just plow his Corvette C4 straight into the muddy water wasn’t any better of an idea than his prior options – despite coming oh so close to pulling off that miraculous escape.
Then again, ‘oh-so-close’ still doesn’t cut it.
