1959 Corvette gets car parked on it at Florida Walmart
UPI News Service, 03/06/2017
A visitor to a Florida Walmart captured video showing the aftermath of a parking disaster that left a car perched atop a classic 1959 Corvette.
Jason Motz, who posted the video to Facebook, said the Corvette was parked off to one side of the parking lot outside the Edgewood store when a driver "cutting through" the lot turned toward it and accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes when she realized she was headed for a collision.
The Corvette's owner, Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections Paul Stamoulis, appears calm in the video as authorities and a tow truck work to extract the Corvette from underneath the larger car.
A friend of Stamoulis confirmed the car was a 1959 Corvette.
Commenters pointed out the body of the Corvette appears to be in good shape -- until the side obscured by the car comes into view in the video.
The side panel has a vertical tear from the bottom to the hood.
"I felt so bad for the owner. I hate to see such a beautiful piece of machinery looking like that," Motz wrote.
