I saw a crashed vette today. It was driving down the road and the steering locked and he hit the ditch. Has anyone ever experienced or heard of this problem? He had it fixed once before this happened and it happened again. Luckly he did not get hurt. It was on a 2000 C5. Any comments?

I thought it was kinda scary myself. I have raced a Corvette a couple of times in a autox....this is something that I would not like to have happen to me.

Just wanted to know if anyone else hda ever heard of this problem. I personally have not, but it sure did make me think.

Just one more reason to get a Column Lock Bypass kit :) And YES they do work on '02's, I have one in mine.

They are selling some on CF for $35-$40 or so. Used and brand new. I hear C5Solutions stopped making them...
