Alan Poster bought himself a brand new 1968 Corvette after getting a divorce, and just a few months later his blue 'vette was stolen from a Manhattan garage. "(It was) probably the only car I've ever really loved," he said.
The 63-year-old Poster had given up all hope of ever seeing the car again. But then Custom officials discovered the classic car in California. A collector in Long Beach, Calif., was trying to sell it to a buyer in Sweden.
New York police did some cold-case detective work and traced the car to Poster--37 years later. He now has his car back. "It's not getting away from me again," Poster told The New York Post. "They're going to have to kill me to get this car."
