And the classic cars weren’t even on the road…

A driver veered off I-25 in Wellington, Colorado, broke through a fence, drove across a field, smashed through a tree barrier, and crashed into a garage where 3 classic cars were parked, damaging 2 of them. That person then got out of their vehicle and fled the scene. By the time fire crews arrived, the suspect’s car was on fire, but they were able to extinguish the blaze before it did further damage.

The suspect’s car was wedged on its side between a 1966 Chevrolet Nova and an older Toyota Camry. That ’66 Nova sustained quite a bit of front-end damage. Unfortunately, the Camry was pushed into a second Chevy, another Nova or possibly a Chevelle (it’s difficult to tell which because of all the debris blocking our view, but we think it’s a Nova) damaging it as well. Again, because the shot of that car is obstructed, we can’t see just how bad the damage is.

Chevy Corvette remained fastest-selling car in March, Toyota RAV4 Prime not far behind

  Chevy Corvette remained fastest-selling car in March, Toyota RAV4 Prime not far behind The Corvette's inventory likely remains in short supply, and ditto for the RAV4 Prime.Still, according to new data from iSeeCars on Wednesday covering the month of March, a Corvette only stuck around at a dealership for 9.4 days on average. The average time to sell a vehicle sits at 47.4 days for all new vehicles, underscoring how quickly a Corvette in stock turns into a sale. While General Motors works to build the sports car as quickly as possible for eager fans, the second-place finisher is pretty surprising.

Colorado State Patrol is now looking for the driver of the vehicle which crashed into the garage. Most people wouldn’t flee the scene of an accident like this unless they either stole the car or weren’t supposed to be driving for whatever reason. Hopefully law enforcement tracks the person down and get answers soon.

In the photos of the accident, which were posted to Twitter by Wellington Fire Protection District, a C2 Corvette is also shown in the garage. Thankfully, it looks like the sports car was unharmed or we would have even more of a reason to cry about this situation.

The lesson here is even when your collectible cars are off the road, they can still fall victim to a reckless driver. We’re not pushing any particular provider, but you should have solid insurance on all your vehicles, just in case.

2022 Toyota GR 86: More powerful sports car coming to America late this year .
More power and more torque should equal more fun.They're good specs if you're a fan of the slow-car-fast lifestyle. As we already knew, the car ditches its old 2.0-liter boxer-four engine for a larger displacement 2.4-liter unit. With the switch comes a power bump from 205 horsepower to 228 hp. Torque increases, too, which is perhaps more important for this car. The 2022 GR 86 -- that's its full name, by the way, and stands for "Gazoo Racing" -- makes 184 pound-feet of twist, compared to the old car's 156 lb-ft.
