Someone Stole This Woman's Corvette At The Woodward Dream Cruise


There is a happy ending. Kind of.

Kelly Robinson is the owner of a 1978 Chevrolet Corvette. The Detroit area resident proudly planned to participate in this year’s famed Woodward Dream Cruise at the wheel of her beloved 'Vette. But there was just one problem: It got stolen last Saturday from a meter location where she parked it just prior to the Cruise. According to Fox 2 Detroit it was nabbed in broad daylight, around 1:40 P.M. Stolen cars in Detroit are sadly nothing new, and Robinson figured her car was a goner.

That is until early Monday morning when two women spotted the car parked on another street. They saw on the local news that it'd been stolen and figured this was the same car, so they called the police. They even waited there until the police arrived to make sure nothing else happened.

The Corvette was recovered and Robinson was notified, only to also find out the engine and wheels were gone. Her theory is that whoever stole her car was watching her during the Dream Cruise itself. "This was my car for 16 years. I bought this car when I was struggling in my early 20s and I said I want a Corvette, I’m going to a buy a Corvette. All my family has Corvettes, it’s my turn now," Robinson said. Fortunately she was reunited with her car, which she lovingly named "Stella," and her insurance will pay for what’s now missing.
