    Corvette stolen in 1970 is returned to TN man

    Corvette stolen in 1970 is returned to TN man

    Classic muscle car now worth $65,000

    By Kate Howard THE TENNESSEAN December 6, 2009


    The 1965 Corvette was worth maybe $2,200 when a thief stole it off Lower Broadway 39 years ago. The rightful owner will drive it back home this week, worth 30 times what he lost, after it was recovered nearly four decades later in Arizona.

    Chance Mayfield parked the convertible, Nassau blue with a white top, on Lower Broadway and went to the honky-tonks in November 1970. It was a great night at the Broadway Barn, he said, until he walked out to the parking lot and the like-new muscle car was gone.

    "That ruined my night," Mayfield said with a chuckle.

    The pain of losing the spotless car was already long forgotten when he got a phone call this summer from a detective who said his car had been found. Once he got his mind around what car he was talking about, Mayfield thought someone was playing a prank on him.

    After 39 years, Tenn. man reunites with stolen Corvette in Scottsdale

    The last time Chance Mayfield saw his 1965 Corvette was on a late November night in 1970 in the parking lot of a Nashville nightclub.

    Sometime after he went into the club, his prized possession was stolen.

    On Monday, 39 years after the fact, Mayfield was reunited in Scottsdale with his valuable muscle car.

    "I got down on my knees and kissed it," said Mayfield, who lives in Baxter, Tenn.
