NAPPANEE, Ind. --A Corvette owner who wanted to put a new top on his beloved car turned to Craigslist for help. He found someone to help and that was the last time he saw his car.

For Mike Stull, it was a match made in heaven.

"Love convertibles, and a Corvette; I love Corvettes, said Stull.

He won the Corvette three years ago at a charity event at the urging of his wife.

"She kept nudging me; saying, 'Bid higher, bid higher, bid higher,'" said Stull.

Earlier this year, the car needed a little maintenance, so he went to Craigslist looking to save some money.

"I put an ad on Craigslist saying, 'Does anyone know how to put a top on?' and a guy contacted me and says, I've done it before, I used to work in a top place,' So he said he could do it, said Stull.

That was the last time Stull saw the car.
