A C2 Corvette Became a Rolling Crime Scene
I have to say that had it not been for the headline of the following story, I would’ve stopped reading about two paragraphs in because it was tough determining exactly where the article was headed.
It’s hard not to be intrigued by a headline like “Murder in a Corvette,” though.
The piece covers everything from the author’s hunt with his brother for a 1966 Corvette convertible to his resigning as a teacher to his chaperoning a group of girls on a trip through Europe, which comes off as a little odd.
The “Murder in a Corvette” element of the column lies in the story of why the carpet in the writer’s dream Corvette had a blood stain in it when he bought the car from a woman in North Carolina.
“Her brother had been a bachelor and had two cars, a Ford sedan and this sports car. He made the ultimate mistake of running around with someone’s wife,” George Wollin wrote. “The husband got wind of it and found them sitting in front of a small store on the edge of town. He went over to the vette and shot him. The man slumped over on the woman. When you pushed the passenger seat forward you could see a large blood stain in the blue carpeting.”
The story goes on to say that Wollin ended up buying the Corvette for $2,600, then spirals into an ending that’s just about as scattered as the beginning of the column. However, it’s really one of those stories you have to read for yourself to get the full effect.
