Yesterday was a very sad day, because in a Walmart parking lot in Englewood, Florida, a Ford Fusion drove right onto a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette’s hood, causing significant body damage to the classic C1. If you need to grab a box of tissues before reading on, I don’t blame you. Sniff.
One of America’s largest retail giants is getting into car sales—except they aren’t, not directly.

Just because this Huffy Carnage is sold by Walmart as a mountain bike doesn’t necessarily mean it can handle a legit downhill mountain run, as Phil Kmetz discovered after spending $180 on one.
