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.

I think this would be less to consider since their current production is in AMG series. However, the figure performance of this car seems to be powerful and its a great thing that the exterior seems to be elegant as well as the interior.

He should hire an professional to that thing for him. I think this is as crazy as the man tries to put his Porsche 911 in the tank using a thin piece of wood to serve as incline plane! Really crazy.

Don’t the barn thing have a back door or something? Lol. Well that was a cool thing to do with the bike. The other person would have gotten away with it, although she’d probably be wet. Lol. One cool video.

he should make use of that ply board because it can give extra 1 inch lift from water plus a few feet of acceleration.

Honestly I really don’t know what this man’s thinking at that moment, using a piece of plywood wont help also a canoe. a very stupid idea, but at least he has the creativity and guts to make that run.
