An out-of-control Hertz Corvette ZHZ crashed into a popular Dallas eatery yesterday, proving yet again the age-old axiom, "with great rental horsepower, comes greatly diminished responsibility." It's been what, at least a month now since the new special edition "Velocity Yellow" 'vette with a black hood and roof stripe was added to Hertz's "Fun Collection" lineup? Yeah, we guess it's about time one was smashed up by some idiot vacationer hoping to play with some high horsepower. Looking back on it, considering the 436 HP 6.2-liter V8 under the hood tied to a flappy paddle gearbox, this thing was just begging for us to create a "Corvette ZHZ Crash Watch." Oh well, we guess we'll just have to wait for the next one — there's at least 499 more chances depending on whether Hertz can fix 'em. See you all back here next Tuesday then?
