A Florida man will have his 1965 Corvette returned to him.
Authorities in Rockdale County discovered the stolen vehicle last week and currently have the classic car impounded It will be returned to owner Paul Smith who had the vehicle stolen while he was in Banks County for the Super Chevy Show at Atlanta Dragway.
The Corvette, which is valued at well over $100,000, was reported stolen the morning after Smith arrived in Banks County from Florida. He discovered the Corvette, along with the truck and trailer he used to transport it, all stolen from a local motel parking lot.
The truck, a 1983 Chevrolet that Smith also purchased when it was new, is still missing. Family members say Smith would also like to recover since it has sentimental value even though it monetary value is not as high as the Corvette.
The trailer is also still missing.
Banks County sheriff Charles Chapman, who has been in contact with Rockdale County law enforcement officials, said the Corvette has not been damaged and is still “in mint condition.”
