The rumors had been accumulating. Someone thought they saw a black Corvette on the beltline that had blue flashing lights and a car stopped. Maybe it was true.
We have seen the local and state police use many types of vehicles in and around this part of North Carolina. Usually it took the form of an unmarked Dodge Charger with heavily tinted windows and an officer with a LIDAR gun. The state troopers have had special Mustangs and Z28 Camaros but this one goes above and beyond.
It is true, the Sheriffs Department got a hold of a seized 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and is using it for nabbing speeders and drug dealers.
Word is that they will be taking the deputies that will use the car to Virginia International Speedway to train them how to drive the Z06 at speed. Many are waiting for the inevitable – when a deputy says, “hey y’all look at this!”
