The cherry-red 1989 Corvette convertible that Corky Rice has is in cherry condition.

It ought to be. It still has its original new car invoice sticker on its windshield and a mere 67 miles on its odometer.

The shiny two-seater was stolen in 1989 from the new car sales lot at what was then called C & M Chevrolet in San Diego and driven straight to a nearby self-storage facility, where it was locked in a garage-size unit and left there

Wow. That is probably one of the strangest stolen cars stories that I've ever heard.

To ask a stupid question, why didn't he sell it ? No title papers ... ?

And he would have spent far less money, if he had actually paid for the car! :s

Probably because of this:

"The story from the lawyer was that after that, he would periodically get calls from the men checking up on him, asking 'Do you still have the car?'" Spear said. "He was supposedly instructed to continue hanging on to it. If it's true, then he felt threatened and kept paying."

I suspect he was afraid.

The car is probably worth quite a bit of money now.

The insurance company paid the dealership, I'd guess they are the legal owner.

That would make the most sense.
