I knew (immediately), that it was our car! I was stunned!!! I never thought we would see the car again.
Your uncle stated that the only item he wanted for his reward was to drive the car around the block. Not only will he be able to drive around the block, but you will be able to drive it as well.
Then, at the very least I want to treat you guy's and your family members to a dinner of your choice at Original Joe's!!
The power of the internet, and specifically this Corvette Forum has proven to be the ticket for the return of our car.
Thank you to the both of you!!!
I'm still in shock (again)!!
I can only assume there was just too much heat surrounding this particular '62. This car was posted everywhere!!! Several newspapers as well as the Cruisin News of which Mr. John Sweeney graciously placed a half page ad to assist for the search of our Corvette!
Also, thanks go to all who assisted with posting and re-posting my threads throughout the internet world.
Of course none of this would be possible without the assistance of friends, and more specifically Les and Kathy Nunes for spending a vast amount of their time forwarding emails, contacting and conferring with several different agencies.
As for the car itself, it's actually in pretty rough shape. The thieves must have decided to use it as an off road vehicle. There are several scrapes, and damage under the vehicle itself. The car also has several visible scratches and scrapes around the entire body of the vehicle.
Bottom line is that it's great to have our Corvette back. There's nothing that can't be repaired on the vehicle. They did take our hardtop, so I'll be watching for that on the Craig's list site, as well as ebay.
I'll take some pics and post them up tomorrow.
Thanks again to all for your support and assistance.
Just as I used to say as a Fire Captain; Independently we are nothing, collectively we become a force that can overcome most all challenges!
It's due to the collective efforts of all here (friends and strangers alike), we were able to overcome what I thought was the impossible!
