    They got to write off the vehilce itself & the extras were paid for by someone else. Why would a large corporation like GM care about a few thousand in extras anyways.

    Still makes me feel sick about the waste of a good rig:frown1:

    as he stated in the show, it all had to do with legality issues. i know where there is a 100% virgin 1972 Nova with 213 miles on it. it fell off of a train car in late 1971 while being unloaded. Chevrolet donated it to a local school for their automotive program. when the school decides that it is no longer a useful training aid, a General Motors representative must be present, the car must be quartered, and each quarter must be crushed seperately. same situation with the trucks that GM donated to the show.

    i tried to find every loophole to get ahold of the car, and there are none. even if it were intended to be used for a shell as a basis of a race car, GM will have none of it, all parts must be destroyed.
