Remember Alan Poster? His 1968 Corvette had been stolen in early 1969 and it was 37 years later in January 2006 that authorities found it at the Long Beach port in California during a routine customs check. Not much is known as to what happened to the Corvette over the last three decades, and during that time it was repainted Silver and the blue interior changed to red. As the recovery of the Corvette created a stir among the auto enthusiast community, CorvetteAmerica.com donated $15,000 in parts and restoration shop California Classics did the work to return the 1968 Convertible back to its original configuration. Last weekend at the Corvettes at Carlisle show, Alan reintroduced the Corvette to enthusiasts and media, and has dubbed the newly restored classic “Reunion Blues”. He plans to use his Corvette’s “celebrity status” to promote worthy causes.
