Why? Did they have bad clutches, or something?

They were on material hold because of the Shaker 1000, and the buyers got tired of waiting.

There are several reasons a car gets destroyed.We have what is called a weld destruct room in the body shop.At random they will pull a body out of the body shop,take it to this room and chisel every weld and cut the body panels with a plasma gun to check for quality(bad welds,weld fitment and body panel quality).It is quite a sight to behold.We build cars with no VINS or serial #'s that get fully dressed that are used for test mules.They get driven on the test track and the rough road and beat on for durability testing.When they are done with testing they go to the crane(oh no Mr Bill).We build trial cars to are build by hand get driven for a few months and then they are destroyed.If they are not built on the assembly line they have to be destroyed.We build customer cars like the Prez, Grabber and Orfs car,pull the trannys out and put them back in,pull the engines out and put them back in and see how well they fare out in the field.lol.(I made the last one up so don't get excited.)Ha ha ha ha.My bad.

I heard that also about pulling the Tranny out beating on it and than putting in back in and than selling it. They shy away from the red cars but all others are fair game :stickpoke:
