Janice Hill, the owner of a C4 Corvette, was expecting a semi-restored vehicle after handing her vehicle off to Eric Lambert. Instead, she ended up with a gutted Corvette.
Local news affiliate WHNT reports Hill knew Lambert personally, who was to repaint and do some light restoration to her C4 Corvette. Lambert originally stated the work would be completed in just a few weeks after a $1,500 deposit.
But, as time went on, Lambert asked for more money until a year had passed. Little do Hill know, Lambert had been busy running a chop shop program with her Corvette.
She had to pay $500 just to get her Corvette returned back to her in the state it currently sits in. Lambert removed the head and taillights, and completely gutted the interior for components. Over the course of this time, Hill paid $6,000 for what she thought was additional restoration.
As it sits now, the Corvette is completely destroyed, but Hill is simply glad to see Lambert behind bars after ruining a precious car to her.
