Rare Dodge Viper cars face death sentence

Posted: Updated:

(NBC News) - A community college says it's the pride of their automotive technology program: a rare Dodge Viper donated to their school worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

So you can imagine their shock when they were told to destroy it.

"The VIN number here is number four, so it's the fourth one off the production line," explains South Puget Sound Community College's Professor Norm Chapman.

Chapman says the problem is, the car was never meant to be driven in the open public, and two of them somehow got out and into accidents, costing Chrysler's parent company millions of dollars.

"I'm hoping Governor Inslee or President Obama will some sort of pardon like they do for turkeys at Thanksgiving," said Chapman. "They can pardon the Viper."
