I don't understand why they want to crush this car after all this time.

from the article:
Back in 2007, Chrysler loaned an original Dodge Viper coupe prototype to South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington. The prototype was actually the fourth one built during the Viper’s development days back in 1992. It’s not street legal but the prototype was used for classes and as a promotional tool for the school’s auto tech program. Needless to say, the Viper did its job very well at recruitment events. But just a few weeks ago, Chrysler informed the school that the car had to be disposed of, or in another word, crushed.

They are crushing for liability reasons. If it gets sold somehow or in the hands of someone it should not, and someone gets hurt as a result, Chrysler could be found responsible and held for financial damages. I hate to see it too, but I understand their reasons.

A friend was telling me about this the other week and I just don't get it, I mean I do understand the liability in our unfortunately Sue happy world, but why can't it at least be disassembled and used for parts or something? He said they have done this to hundreds of Vipers, such a waste :(
