Some crooks in Bellmead, Texas really wanted to steal a Corvette, but couldn't drive it at the time for whatever reason. So, they decided to steal a pickup truck to haul it to Dallas, which is just under two hours away.

KWTX reports that on July 9th, witnesses reported seeing the thieves using a 1985 Chevrolet Silverado to push a 1979 Chevrolet Corvette at Road Ranger truck stop (seems like that would scratch up the Vette). Then surveillance footage showed them hook up the sports car to be towed away.

The pickup was found the next day up in Dallas, but the Corvette is nowhere to be found.

Keep an eye out for a red Corvette (possibly a scratch or two) with a Texas license plate that reads DP9-T172. Who knows - it may be getting towed around by another truck. Maybe they couldn't get into it. Maybe it's like a luxury trailer.
