Corvette Popping Through Building

The front end of a late 1960s yellow Chevrolet Corvette bursting through the second floor of a wireless retailer. The tail end of the auto resides inside the building. Employee said that the building was originally a Montgomery Ward store that was purchased and operated as Pro-Shine Car Wash. Pro-Shine management put the Corvette (in or on) the building to promote the car wash. Building was taken over by a wireless company that has plans to renovate the Corvette back to when it had working headlights.
