This is an example of why you should always check your brakes before heading out, especially if your Vette has sat idle for a long time. This poor guy didn't do that and after taking it out of the garage to move it to his driveway found that his brakes no longer worked.  He then had to quickly decide what to do after the parking brake didn't help either... He could crash into his Dodge Challenger, straight into the fence which likely would have put in his C2 Corvette into the lake adjacent to his property, or - as you can see - he could crash it into the building.  If you watch to the end, you'll see he takes some of his frustration out on the fence.
