Reward offered in stolen Corvette case
Classic 1965 car stolen while owner in Banks area for Super Chevy Show
Paul Smith and his family simply want his antique 1965 model Corvette back and they are putting up a reward to see if any information can be obtained.
The Florida man arrived in Banks County recently with the prized antique Corvette, but someone decided to help themselves to the classic car valued at more than $100,000.
Banks County sheriff Charles Chapman said his office received a call early May 31 from a guest at the Hampton Inn who went outside at approximately 7 a.m. and noticed his truck and the trailer which contained the Corvette gone. Smith was driving a 1983 Chevrolet truck and pulled an enclosed trailer with the Corvette inside.
Everything together was valued at $121,000 although the Corvette accounted for the bulk of that amount. Smith was able to give the license plate numbers and identification numbers for the missing vehicles.
Alerts were put out immediately for the missing truck, trailer and Corvette, Chapman said, although nothing has materialized.
How much did the car mean to Smith?
His daughter said this week family and friends have long joked that he would one day be buried in it.
Smith also considered the theft of the truck he used to transport the Corvette a big loss as he had owned it since it was new in 1983.
Other personal items and tools were also taken during the theft.
Anyone with information concerning this theft is asked to contact the BCSO at 706-677-2248.
