Prototype Viper Saved from the Crusher

In January, Chrysler had announced that they were crushing 93 of the very first Dodge Vipers that were built. Most of these cars were donated to technical schools and were not road legal. As Mopar Blog reported in March, South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington refused to see their car crushed and started an online petition. Well, good news. It worked! Carbuzz is reporting that, due to the petition the resulting local news coverage, Chrysler has decided not to crush the car and is currently working with the school to arrive at a solution.
