Corvette coverage

EDITOR:

I want to take an opportunity to thank the many individuals responsible at the Mountain Democrat for their coverage of our events concerning the theft of, and the subsequent recovery of our 1962 Corvette.

As many of you know by now, our ’62 Corvette was stolen on the evening of Aug. 17. It was removed from the bed and breakfast we were lodging at in Pacific Grove.

Fortunately, on the evening of Aug. 30, we were informed that the car had been spotted in San Jose, near San Jose State University. That call was received at approximately 8:10 p.m.. My wife and I immediately drove to the location specified in San Jose, and we were able to retrieve the car from the San Jose Police at 2 a.m.

I firmly believe it was due to the efforts of family, friends, and publications such as yours, that made this particular Corvette one of the most widely publicized and recognizable ’62s in several years. I received hundreds of e-mails from individuals who informed me that they posted and/or reposted our alerts for our vehicle. Most importantly, I received a call from “Richard” informing me that his nephew said he needed to contact me. Richard had observed this old Corvette parked on his street. It was not secure, windows were down, and the trunk lid was open. This caught his eye as he wondered how the owner could leave it on the street like it was. He took a picture and sent it to his nephew who recognized the car and informed his uncle that this looked like the car that was all over the Internet as being stolen from Pacific Grove.

Thank goodness Richard and his nephew took the time to contact me.

Many thanks to you (Cole Mayer, Wendy Schultz, and Publisher Richard Esposito) at the Mountain Democrat, and “thank you” to each and every individual who helped spread the word about our car.

It is now safe at home in an alarmed garage. It will take quite a bit of repair, but it will be back to it’s former condition. My wife and I will drive it by the Mountain Democrat when it’s repaired.
