OLYMPIA, Wash. — Chrysler ordered a community college in Olympia, Wash. to crush a rare pre-production Doge [hilarious sic] Viper in pristine condition owned by the school.

Norm Chapman, an automotive technology professor at South Puget Sound Community College, told Q13FOX he received a letter from Chrysler, advising him that the college’s $250,000 1992 pre-production Dodge Viper must be destroyed.

While Chapman wasn’t sure why the order to destroy the classic car was issued, he did speculate to Q13FOX that crashes involving two other educational Vipers while being driven outside of the classroom illegally may have something to do with it.

The car, described by Chapman as a “once-in-a-lifetime car,” was donated to the college by Chrysler.

Chapman added that the vehicle has only 304 miles and has never even had the chance to get out on the road.

“With advancements in automotive technology over the past decade, it is unlikely that these vehicles offer any educational value to students,” said Chrysler.

Uh.. Doge Viper. Very education. Much fast.
