15 Photos Of Junked Corvettes That Are Heartbreaking To See

Corvette is one of the most popular names in the car industry, and this is for good reason. Over the decades, Corvette has remained synonymous with quality and muscle. For many people, owning a Corvette would be a dream come true, and it continues to set trends and push boundaries after all this time.

Now, most would figure that a person with a Corvette in their possession would treat this thing like a work of art, but unfortunately, this is just not the case. There are times when Corvettes have been left out in the junkyard to rot. It isn’t easy to see, but a list like this can be a reminder to people to appreciate what they have, cause someone else surely would.

Today, we are going to take a look at some junked Corvettes that time has forgotten about. They used to be beautiful, but now, they are just scraps.

Once upon a time, someone out there owned this gorgeous 1963 C2, but then it was treated poorly and ended up like this. We cannot imagine ever letting a Corvette go to ruin like this one here. Most people would have jumped at the chance to make this thing work.

A 1966 Corvette is one of the prettiest cars of its era, but few would know that by looking at this jalopy. This car was once the king of the road, and now, it collects dust and rust. Somewhere out there, a person is seeing this and wishing they could have done something with it.

There were some good Corvette models that came along in the 80s, and the 1984 Corvette does have some fans. These people, however, would want to look away the second that they saw this thing in its current state. It is better off being put away in a dark place.

Few cars in history look as good in red as a Corvette does, and this look has become a signature of sorts over time. Well, there is still some red that can be seen here, but a person will have to squint and look past the dust to see it. This 1985 Corvette is a relic now.

The C3 Corvette as the third generation of Corvette models to hit the road over the years, and there were some exceptional advancements that were made during this time. Of course, not a single soul out there would be able to tell that by looking at this dirty and dusty ride.

Why in the world are people so causal about disposing of a C3 Corvette? This longer body once prowled the streets with a force that few other cars could match. The hands that this fell into through the years did little in the way of making sure that it stayed powerful.

Compared to some of the other cars on this list, this particular Corvette is not in nearly as bad of condition. However, this does not excuse the owners of this ride from treating it like garbage. And to think that this car could still be running and looking good.

What’s worse than one trashed Corvette? A whole lot full of them! Once again, we have a photo of a Corvette boneyard that is filled with a bunch of cars that used to blow people away in yesteryear. Hopefully, some of these cars were put to good use at some point.

These 1960 Corvettes were crown jewels at one point. It is sad to see that they did not sell and wound up just rusting away in the middle of nowhere. Many Corvette collectors would love to be able to get one or two of these to fix up and sell.

The scrapyard is no place for a Corvette, let alone an entire fleet of them. As one of the most important pieces of automobile history, these cars deserve to have a better fate than this. It is especially egregious to see a few red Corvettes just rusting away like this.

What in the world is happening here? These Corvettes are just shells of what they used to be, and that is putting it lightly. It seems like they have almost no use at this point, so the owner of this lot is forced to just hang onto them for no reason.

Running a scrapyard like this is tough work, and not just because it requires plenty of physical work. It is tough because the owner has to see so many beautiful cars just go to waste every single day. Imagine having to look at these Corvettes wasting away on the regular.

Because Corvettes have been around for so long, it would make sense that many lots over the years have had their fair share of busted Corvettes. This photo is much older than some of the other ones on this list, and it is filled with Corvettes that used to the best thing out there.
