Many of us put our toys away for the winter, and rest easy knowing the car will remain safe from the elements. A Flint, Michigan man followed the same procedure, locking up his 2014 C7 Stingray for the winter, but returned to the worst surprise he could receive.
Upon going to retrieve the car from storage, the garage had been broken into and the car had been vandalized and stripped of pieces, according to M Live. Maintenance of the garage says a hole had been drilled into the adjoining garage to gain access to where the Corvette was being stored.
The perp stole a custom Corvette cover made specifically for the owner’s car, and proceeded to steal the right rear-view mirror along with an interior panel from inside. The report also notes the engine had been tampered with, and it seemed the battery was missing.
As if that isn’t awful enough, the sides of the Corvette Stingray are completely scratched and damage is present on the hood of the vehicle. Altogether, damage estimates are totaling around $5,000, and there are no leads on who may have committed the act.
All we have to say is we hope whoever is responsible is caught and served justice accordingly, because no one deserves to have this done to their car. The fact it was someone’s Corvette happens to heighten the situation.
