    VetteTube - Posting For Ron Smith 1970 Vette

    Ron Smith is a veteran that had his Dream car stolen on July 20th. He expressly joined and posted about it on the Corvette Action Center forum for help. He didn't know how to string the photos to video and make this so they did it for him and we're trying to spread it around, hoping that it will do some good. They're trying to get the You Tube link working soon.

    Thank you for your time. I'm just trying to be a boy scout and pay something forward.

    Stolen from Brisbane CA, July 20th 2008.
    1970 Candy Apple Red Convertible.
    License # CALIF70
    VIN# 194670S401895

    If you have any information, call San Mateo County Sheriff's Office,
    650-222-5034

    Did anybody else think "Corvette Summer" when they read the title of this thread? [​IMG]

    I lost $15,000 in cash. If found PM me and I'll give you my address. Keep a 20 for your trouble.




    Tee hee! Seriously, good luck.

    I live somewhat near Savannah GA. I saw a vette just like this in my very tiny town months ago. It looked out of place. I gave it a double glance and a wooow, coool. For all I know it could have been yours. If I see it again I'll be sure and get the tag number.

    Oh, sorry to burst your bubble then, but look at the number of views and just think, we're all bumping this thread to the top of the forum for you!

    In all honesty, if it hasn't been found yet, it probably won't be. If someone took it for a joy ride they would have been finished with it or caught already. (bright red corvette) At best the tags are changed and it is a new color. At worst it is being sold for parts. In any case the odds of forum members, located all over the world, spotting it are very slim to none.

    More likely sold for parts. Its not a really valuable car. I cant see somebody stealing it and getting it repainted.
