for Sale Do you need to buy half of a Corvette?
If you do, you are in luck as Spokane has one of only three wrecking
yards in the nation that are authorized to take in new General
Motors vehicles. These are test cars or otherwise damaged cars
which GM does not want to sell to the public. When I was there
they had two new Corvettes. One they had just cut in half, and
the other was in their shop with someone prepping it for the
same fate. The later one looked like it was in perfect condition
and showed 7,000 miles on the odometer. GM requires the salvage
yard to provide a video tape of the vehicles being dismembered.
So, you can buy the front half, or you can buy the back half...
but you cannot buy both halves!.
I can understand that GM has test
vehicles or perhaps malfunctioning new vehicles that they would
rather sell for salvage than offer to the public with no warranty.
But, it still seems almost criminal to see this happening. The
