GM Preps Tornado Damaged C8’s To Be Crushed

As many of you know by now, on December 11th, 2021, a tornado hit the GM Bowling Green assembly facility damaging over 120 C8 Corvettes. Although visually these C8 Corvette Stingray units may look okay, other than being only partially assembled, it’s likely that moisture got into critical electronics and other components. Rather than spend the time to evaluate and repair each and every damaged car, GM is taking the safer path and sending all of these vehicles to the crusher.

While the loss of all these C8’s will hit the buyers waiting for their C8 to be delivered, they can rest assured that GM is spending the time and money to make sure, when they get their new C8, it will be the great car they waited a long time to get. It is also important to remember that no GM employees were hurt when the tornado damaged the roof and caused a small fire to break out.

Jim D. and the Cowtown Vettes Corvette Club of Fort Worth, TX

It was a chilly day in Dallas-Fort Worth, but given the holiday season, we all know how important it is to give back and keep those less fortunate in our thoughts, especially kids anticipating a visit from Santa. To help visions of sugar plums (and maybe a Corvette) dance in their heads, the Cowtown Vettes Corvette Club of Fort Worth, TX. gathered for breakfast at the local Cracker Barrel where the fireplace was thankfully roaring. We then loaded up our Vettes and headed out on a short run to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots drop location. It was a beehive of activity, but the “buzz” (bad pun) among the volunteers when they saw 20 Corvettes in line with toys was terrific. The smiles were everywhere and more than a few volunteers who unloaded our cache of toys snapped selfies with their favorite car.
