The 20th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise turned into a nightmare for a couple from Rochester Hills, Michigan.
Gordon and Arlene Ondrisek were enjoying the annual Dream Cruise with friends the way they have for years when they decided to take a break and get some grub at the Pita Café in downtown Birmingham, Michigan on Saturday.
After they had finished eating, they came out of the restaurant only to discover their beloved 1965 Nassau Blue Corvette convertible was gone!
Gordon and Arlene had parked the car just a few feet from the front door of the restaurant at the corner of Willits and North Old Woodward, never dreaming that their dream Corvette they’ve owned for about 15 years would be stolen.
“Never had a problem,” Gordon says, “always come to Birmingham.”
While they immediately contacted the police, Gordon is afraid that he’ll never see his beloved Corvette again.
“I think somebody targeted the mid-year Corvette, which is a very popular car,” Gordon told WXYZ-TV in Detroit, “and my feeling is it’s probably being disassembled somewhere and sold off in pieces.”
Still, though, he’s hopeful that someone out there may have some clues that could still turn his nightmare back into a dream.
The car is blue on blue, and the Michigan license plate is BCH 5269.
