    Jackstand to ground probably helped the car from more damage. My dad's truck got hit by lightening, ripped off the roof rack, went through the body, into the frame, then the axles, and ARC'd around the rubber to the ground. There were 4 holes in the driveway where the lightning arc'd around the rubber. The stupid insurance company tried to say it was an easy fix, then ended up replacing every single computer in the truck, the radio, guage cluster and main harness's in the car. They originally started replacing computers, then harnesses and the price just kept going up as codes kept popping up. All said and done it ended up costing more to fix than it was worth. The insurance adjuster was an idiot, I told him to total it before they started dumping money into it. The truck always popped the occasional CANbus code, but my dad would just erase and ignore it. The catalytic converters also died 2 years later, and the truck was 4 years old when they died. I think the lightening cooked the cats and melted them a little, causing them to clog prematurely. We had to pay for that ourselves.

    If it was struck by lightning, you HAVE to name it lightning.

    So this guy shows his face on a Youtube channel with 1.2m subscribers to share a pretty elaborate fraud scheme? Ballsy. Maybe carmax will ad some clips of this to their training vids. Hope I never have to deal with a guy like this.

    "I didn't want to screw anybody over" after he puts a truck engine in a corvette.... This guy is a real piece of work.

    Jack stands or not, when lightning travels through a few miles of air, a few inches of rubber is nothing.

    This sounds like some pawn star fake story crap, but the good news is most people are idiots and will believe anything you tell them. Struck by lightning my ass. This is why he keeps interrupting the guy, because it's a bs story just for the show.

    Due to the detailed public history, and competent love that's gone into it, in fifty years I would bet that it appreciates in value beyond a stock version of the same year.If it don't get wrapped around a tree at some point.

    Carmax would not sell it even if it was stock... Dealt with them and they always said they do not sell Corvettes or Vipers, A Viper is what i want.... Seen a blue one once for $15k in a showroom in some dealership in 2003ish and have not seen one since but also stopped looking.

    You can tell the guy did not understand the part about the jackstands grounding out the car leading to the lightning strike.
