    Default Man steals over 100 Corvettes

    Recently arrested in the Akron, OH area was a very successful car thief. He has a rap sheet that shows many many years of stealing Corvettes. He even took orders for cars and fed several chop shops with a flow of cars. I hope this guy is off the street for good.

    Hey Mac, first time I was shopping for a Vette when I was out of the Navy in 71', I stop at our local joint "Jimmy H___'s Corvette Country" in Trenton NJ.

    Nothing on the lot that I can afford but the "salesman" sends me out to the garage. The "mechanic" and his bros are sporting local bike club colors and he asks me how much and my color preference.

    Later at a local tap room I kind of start talking about this like "hey guys, I think I'm on to something and when I see my "old man" with the PD" ..and everybody starts laughing.

    How come I was always the last guy to figure things out?

    That's a great story! At least they warned you instead of letting you get in over your head.
