Little Hooding Red Ride

We are planning an invasion of Corvairs to Ralph Nader’s hometown of Winsted, Connecticut where he erected The American Museum of Tort Law. In this museum/prison he has on display like a hunting trophy, a Chevrolet Corvair. There are 4 elements to Tort Law: duty, breach of duty, causation, and injury. in order to claim damages, there must be a breach in the duty of the defendant towards the plaintiff, which results in an injury.  the three main types of torts are negligence, strict liability or product liability, and intentional torts.

Therefore, by definition, the Corvair has no tort. Hence, has no business being in The American Museum of Tort Law, let alone its largest exhibit. So in peaceful protest we will fill Ralph Nader’s hometown with as many Corvairs as possible, every year on July 20, until he has freed the innocent prisoner he has on display and put it back on the american roads where it belongs.
