For the second straight year, a classic midyear Corvette was stolen while its owner enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Woodward Dream Cruise in Birmingham, Michigan. It was just last year that an $80,000 dark blue 1966 Convertible was stolen following the famous cruise. This year, Birmingham Police are investigating the theft of a Riverside Red 1964 Corvette Convertible stolen Saturday morning.
According to police, the owner had parked the Corvette around 10:30 am on Ruffner Avenue off Woodward Avenue between 14 and 15 Mile Roads and walked away, leaving the convertible top down. The Corvette was missing when he returned about 20 minutes later.
The Corvette was registered in Ontario and had a license plate that read 6T4VET. Although Police report multiple sightings of the red Convertible Corvette on the expressway, no credible leads have turned up.
