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.

The Olympia college has about 20 donated vehicles in its auto shop.
