Weird Car News - Corvette stolen in 1970 found in perfect condition
A 1965 Corvette stolen from its owner in 1970 was found by Scottsdale, Ariz. police and returned to its owner.
Chance Mayfield was in a bar in Nashville 39 years ago when his car was stolen,a story by the Tennessean.com said. "That ruined my night," Mayfield told the Nashville-based newspaper. When the car didn't show after a few years, Mayfield said he forgot all about it -- until he received a call on his 68th birthday saying his car has been found.
The car was discovered when a collector who bought the car for $65,000 took it to the Arizona department of motor vehicles for inspection, the story said. A routine check of the serial number identified the completely restored car as stolen.
