OLYMPIA — Chrysler has told the automotive program at South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia that it must destroy one of its prized cars, a pre-production 1992 Dodge Viper.
The Olympian reports (http://bit.ly/NUg5Fp) the car is not legal for street use and was never intended for sale. It was donated to the school for training with the understanding the company could order it to be destroyed.
The donations coordinator for Chrysler, Steven Glasco, says all the donated Vipers nationwide are being crushed.
College automotive technology professor Norm Chapman says he was told a couple of the educational Vipers elsewhere “got loose” and were involved in accidents, exposing the parent company to liability costs.
The Olympia college has about 20 donated vehicles in its auto shop.
