    It would have been a shame if Mick Wilsonís only memory of owning a 1963 Corvette convertible would have been the day back in the 1970s when he walked away from his just-totaled car.

    "I had it just a little over a week. I bought it from my boss for $2,500 and was going to make payments on it," said Wilson. A woman trying to maneuver around a bus crashed her car into Wilsonís íVette and that was the end of that dream.

    When a Corvette is involved in a major accident, its fiberglass body tends to explode into pieces, he said.
