Video: Corvette Driver Loses It on the Freeway—Then Saves It

We’ve all been there. We see something happen that just blows our mind, and then realize something, “man I wish I was videoing this”! Unfortunately, all too often things go unseen to the masses, and the chance of being a viral celebrity is gone.

Fortunately for us and everyone else that likes to spend time on YouTube, we came across an instance where someone did actually have the camera rolling.  While the video only lasts a quick 39 seconds, we’re sure that for the driver, the Corvette Pirouette probably seemed to last forever.  The Ballerina move got under way when it appears that the driver of this C4 decided to move into the left lane to pass a slower moving vehicle.

Brake, clutch, steer! Brake, clutch, steer!

As soon as he started his maneuver, he ended up getting more than just a little surprise. As the car begins to fishtail the Ron Fellows wanna-be overcorrects, and sends the car into a spin. He connects with the curb, and surprisingly regains control. Once under control, the driver simply accelerates, and drives off like nothing ever happened.

It’s hard to make out exactly what caused the driver to lose control while watching the clip, so we’ll just chalk it up to driver error. We can hear it now, “Sorry dad, I was just doing the speed limit when the car suddenly skidded out of control.”  Ok, it might not have been a young person driving the car, but I know how I was…

There are a lot of folks that feel that the privacy of the American people is disintegrating, but when we see a video like this that was generated by someone simply having a camera on the dash of their car; it definitely gives a good reason to chuckle.

I had it all along!
