A C7 Corvette Z06 was stolen from a Davie, Florida body shop on early Sunday morning and the heist was all caught on surveillance cameras.
The Z06 was damaged and footage shows it’s missing its rear fascia. The car may have even been totaled according to a report from WSVN.
The damaged Corvette was parked at Bill “Faddy Daddy” Gante’s body shop on the 2000 block of Southwest 70th Avenue in Davie. The video shows a dark tow-truck backing up to the sports car, with an individual hooking up the car and then leaving the premises.
Gante, who says that “Florida is a sunny place with shady people” thinks they were after the Z06’s LT4 V8 engine.
“Definitely for the motor. [There] wasn’t anything good on the car,” Gant told WSVN.
During the heist, the car thieves dropped the car from the tow truck which struck a Camaro parked next to it.
“I feel violated,” Gant said. “I took it a little personal, so I’m trying to calm down with a piece of Xanax every morning to relax myself because I do have anger management issues. I’m just trying to stay chill.”
Gant has some ideas who may have stolen the Corvette, and authorities have received tips from the community. If you know anything about the stolen Z06, you can call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS
