Man’s prized ’79 Corvette found 33 years after it went missing in Detroit
Detroit — A man’s prized Corvette that was stolen three decades ago in Detroit has been found in Mississippi.
George Talley says he was watching TV last week when AAA called to say his 1979 Corvette had been found.
Talley tells WXYZ-TV he was told the car still runs, has 47,000 miles on it and is sitting at a police station in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
The last time Talley saw the car was in 1981, before thieves took it from a parking spot along a Detroit street.
