[VIDEO] Another Look at George Talley's Stolen, Recovered and Now Restored 1979 Corvette


Last week at the GM Heritage Center, Detroit resident George Talley got the first look at his restored 1979 Corvette after General Motors graciously went to work on the car for the veteran in advance of this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

The Corvette will be part of Chevrolet’s display at the Woodward Dream Cruise, which is officially billed as the world’s largest automotive event.

Corvettes on Woodward was held Wednesday in Detroit and featured around 500 Corvettes who gather off of Detroit’s Woodward Avenue before making the “Drive to End Hunger” to drop off food donations at the the Open Hands Food Pantry in Royal Oak. The event is organized by our friend Larry Courtney who did another outstanding job in putting this event together.

Thanks to our friends at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering we have a fantastic photo gallery of the Corvettes who were in attendance.

[VIDEO] GM Refurbs Detroit Man's Stolen Corvette in Time for the Woodward Dream Cruise


We’ve been following the feel-good story of George Talley and his stolen 1979 Corvette. If you remember, George’s 1979 Corvette was stolen 34 years ago and last summer it showed up in Mississippi. GM’s Mark Reuss heard about the car and after seeing George on the evening news, decided to get involved and had the car shipped back to George’s Detroit home.

Zora Arkus-Duntov's Detroit Home is for Sale


Guys like Zora Arkus-Duntov, Harley Earl and Ed Cole are the names of legends to those of us who are Corvette fans.

Like Mad Men for car guys, I imagine Corvette’s first Chief Engineer and his wife Elfie hosting a cocktail party in the early ’60s at their Detroit home with the whose-who of Chevrolet performance walking the halls or standing in the kitchen with drinks in their hands talking about the latest engine test or what crosstown rivals Ford was up to.

Now you can walk those same halls that Zora once did as the house that he and his wife Elfie owned is back on the market.
