(Oley) -- Chrysler has told a trade school in Berks County it must destroy one of its prized cars, a 1996 Dodge Viper GTS.
The car was donated to the Berks Career and Technology Center in 1999 and hundreds of students have worked on it since then.
But there was a catch. Chrysler maintained ownership and the school would be required to destroy the muscle car when the automaker decided the time had come.
Berks Career and Technology Center Director Robert Lees says the Bern Township school got the news in January.
The automaker says the equipment on the car is outdated, it's not street-legal and it's not historically significant.
Lees says Chrysler requires photos or video of the car being crushed as proof.
