This happened early this morning near Portland, Oregon.

 

Yesterday afternoon a 42 year old man, bought a 1989 Chevy Corvette, from

a car dealer in Portland.  Last night he ran it into a power pole.  Knocking out all power

in that area.  Because the powerlines fell around the car, he was trapped for over 4 hours

in the car. The car was severely damaged.  Hope he had insurance.

The corvette in the picture is from 2000-2001, not 1989. Regardless, you should never get a car that powerful without knowing the inherent risks. That thing has got somewhere between 300 and 450 hp (rough estimate, I'm not a chevy guy) and will wrap you around a tree if you don't exercise extreme caution. If that guys got any sense, he'll stick to public transportation from now on lol

When I first saw the picture, and read the story, I knew it wasn't a 1989.  I think it is a 1998 or newer by the looks of the rear end quarter panels.  The reporter got it wrong.  Good pickup mel.
