About 30 miles up the road a worker at the airport stumbled across something rather special, the 2009 Corvette SS prototype. The article states it was being shipped over to Germany for testing.
Now I don't know about you, but given the opportunity that this individual was faced with, I think I would have probably did the same thing he did. After snapping some pictures, I'd take this baby for a spin around the parking lot. I mean seriously, if you're working in the loading docks at an airport, do you really think you'll ever be able to afford a 650+ hp Corvette that is rumored to cost north of $100,000 when it comes out? This was a once in a lifetime chance, and this guy took the bull by the horns and went for a ride. Yeah, he lost his job, but years from now he'll be able to look back and tell stories of the time he took one of America's baddest super cars for a spin.
As for the car itself, the spy shots really don't show us much. The average Joe would say it's just some Corvette, as most of what makes it special lies under the skin. The shots that are floating all over the net now were obtained from Jalopnik. It seems that GM hasn't pressed charges, so the extent of his headaches may simply be the loss of his job. Given the fact he'd likely never in his life have a chance to drive such a car, I'm sure he can live with finding another $8 an hour or so job.
