    A judge gave an order to destroy it due to it's inherent danger.

    Later someone told him, "Your honor. It was a car, not a snake!"

    Seems quite a waste as the parts value for the composites, tires and larger metal bits far exceeds the scrap value.

    I'm sure it was a car ordered to be destroyed by a judge. In CA, if your caught street racing, thats what they can do to your car.

    This is what happens when you drive a Viper in the snow.

    This makes me hate America and Americans...even though I'm born and raised. I don't care what car it is, who takes anywhere from 20 to 40 thousand dollars and poops on it?
    This is why we're billions of dollars in debt, not cool

    Looks like a vindictive ex wife at work here.
    Got the car In the settlement and had it crushed for spite.
    Like Tiger's ex with the house but on a smaller scale.

    Wouldn't care if it was an R/T, but a GTS in what looks to be black in color, damn shame.

    Not saying that's CA, just pointing out that crushing your car has been an option for judges in CA for many years now.

    This Guy is far from a Excavator operator. I doubt he has seen much seat time. I work on this type of equipment every day and am working around them every day with qualified operators. I think this guy was in on the crushing and wanted to do it himself to prove a point to whoever owned the car.

    Destroying a car because of street racing is a complete idiot move. Why not just seize the car and auction it off, that way the state can raise much needed capital and the car can be saved. Win Win if you ask me. Absolutely ridiculous!

    And here is supposedly the reason from the place I originally saw the video at.

    Reason behind the destruction of these cars..... The two that I had to destroy came from schools in the area's auto shops. Chrysler Corp removed these cars from schools across the country because 1 student supposedly stole one from a school and was killed in it. I don't know how true this stands but I can tell you that a rep from Chrysler was there to verify the destruction of this car and to make sure there was not a salvageable part left. I am unsure how many vipers are to be destroyed. I was told each state has a few or so.
