[STOLEN] Family's 1977 Corvette Stolen from Private Garage in Maryland

A piece of Charles Estelle’s life is missing.

Now, he’s just hoping someone out there will be able to help him bring his prized 1977 Corvette back home.

The orange Corvette, in the process of being restored and “probably about two months from being road ready,” according to Estelle, has been in his life since he was just 7 or 8 years old.

After taking the car apart and performing extensive “plastic surgery,” though, the classic Corvette is now a dream machine.

The best news is that no one was injured Sunday when a man crashed a stolen red C7 convertible after leading police on a chase that reached speeds of 130 mph.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the Corvette Stingray, which suffered major front end damage after catching fire following the crash.

The three-county crime spree actually started with the suspect behind the wheel of a truck in Kendall County, Texas, but authorities say the man ditched that vehicle and stole the Stingray at gunpoint and started a house fire.
