I bet there’s no one that’ll be celebrating this Fourth of July weekend more than George Talley, and rightfully so. The GM retiree’s 1979 Corvette was stolen 33 years ago, but Talley was recently reunited with his long-lost friend at General Motors’ world headquarters in Detroit.
Maybe Godzilla isn’t the big behemoth to beat after all. In this battle against a twin-turbo C6 Corvette, the Nissan GT-R, nicknamed after the towering monster, seemed far less superior.
The concerns over some past safety issues that have come back to haunt GM are pushing the carmaker to make sure everything is now up to snuff, which has spawned another recall on the 2014 Corvette.
Now it’s official. The National Corvette Museum will be preserving the sinkhole that continues to keep people flocking to the Kentucky facility in droves just to see the darn thing.
Last week George Talley received a call informing him that his 1979 Corvette that was stolen 33 years ago in Detroit had been found in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
