For the second year in a row, a classic midyear Corvette has been stolen during the Woodward Dream Cruise.
This year it was a Red 1966 Corvette Convertible taken from a parking garage in Birmingham.
Police say the owners parked the car in the Park Street Parking Garage in Birmingham on Saturday afternoon around 12:30 pm. When they returned at 2:00 pm, they discovered it missing.
Surveillance video shows the thief making off with the car at 12:50 PM, crossing Old Woodward and Heading west on Willits Street. Unfortunately, the video did not get a good look at the suspect. It’s possible that the car was then loaded into an enclosed trailer parked at the end of Willits.
The Corvette is a Red Convertible with a black soft top, black wheels and standard hub caps. It wears a Michigan license plate reading ‘ITSMY66’. Birmingham Police provided the following photo of the stolen Corvette. It looks nearly identical to the file photo we posted above except it has black wall tires, not the white walls as shown here.

If anyone has any further details about the car they are urged to call the Birmingham Police Department at (248) 644-3400.
Last year, a Nassau Blue 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible was also stolen from Willits and Old Woodward in Birmingham and has yet to be recovered. Another Corvette was also stolen from the same location back in 2008.
