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.

Twenty years ago, Chevrolet closed out the C4 Corvette generation with a special run of 1,000 Corvette Grand Sports – 810 Coupes and 190 Convertibles. These Admiral Blue Corvettes are very distinctive with the white full length body stripe, Black Wheels and Red Hash Marks on the fender and they are a fairly rare sighting today on the streets unless you go to one of the bigger national shows.
We imagine that spotting a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport in the U.K. is even rarer which makes this story about a stolen Corvette in England newsworthy to Corvette enthusiasts everywhere.

It was meant to be. How else can you describe it?
Terry Dietrich was born in 1953, the same year that the first Corvette rolled out of the factory.

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. That’s when his dad bought the car. Charles was so small, in fact, that he had to sit on a pillow back then just to see out the windows.
