El Dorado County resident reported his 1962 red Corvette stolen during Classic Car Week
A fourth stolen car report surfaced Wednesday involving a vintage vehicle taken during Classic Car Week.
Pacific Grove police said Wednesday that an Camino man, whose name is not being given out, reported his 1962 red Corvette vanished after he parked it late Saturday at a bed and breakfast.
The theft apparently occurred between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., police Cmdr. John Miller said.
The owner said he parked at the lodging in the 300 block of Central Avenue and discovered the car missing an hour later when a friend came by.
The car owner said whoever took it must not have started the engine because he said "he would have heard if it was fired up," Miller said.
Three other vintage cars — two 1961 Chevrolet Impala convertibles and a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air — were reported stolen from auction lots over the weekend in the Monterey area.
Law enforcement officials say it is unusual for cars to be stolen during the annual event that brings scores of the world's most special cars to the Monterey Peninsula at various venues.
"It's definitely very rare," Miller said.
