The Chevrolet Corvette is a proud icon of the American motor industry. It is not built to be a crash barrier for drunk drivers, yet that's exactly what happened at Tropical Chevy in Miami Shores earlier this month. In the early hours of December 14th a drunk driver lost control while driving down Biscayne Boulevard and crashed into a row of Vettes.

The incident happened at about 3 a.m., and the driver rammed into the first in a row of Corvette Grand Sports. According to CorvetteBlogger.com, the driver didn't suffer any serious injuries, but we can't say the same about the sports cars.

Amazingly, this isn't the first time a driver has rammed into cars sitting on the Tropical Chevrolet lot. Back in 2007, a driver speeding down Biscayne Boulevard at about 125 mph lost control, went airborne, and landed atop a row of Chevy SUVs. Ironically, the speeding driver was behind the wheel of a Corvette.
