ABC Show killed a Muscle Car

Some new ABC show, "The Ex-Wives Club" wrecked a cherry 1970 Oldsmobile! Looked like a 442 or equivalent. They loaded it in a cargo plane and dropped it from 10,000 feet.

Sad to see them kill a beautiful car for the sake of ratings.

I sincerely hope that it was a replica.. something done up just for the stunt.

Surely no tv exec is dumb enough to allow a classic peice of American Automotive history to be destroyed!!!

I saw it but I didn't think it was a 442, just a cutlass and that's bad enough. If she were my wife I would sue her and ABC for that stunt. They sure do some dumb things for ratings.
