Thieves Steal Milwaukie man's $100k 1954 Corvette Roadster

MILWAUKIE -- Clackamas County Sheriff's officials said someone stole a rare and valuable 1954 Corvette roadster from a Milwaukie man's garage.

The car's owner, Emory Molchan, said he discovered the roadster missing on Tuesday.

"It's like losing a kid," said Molchan. "We don't have children so . . . it's my passion."

According to Molchan, there are only seven 1954 Corvette roadsters registered in Oregon, and he owns three of them.

Two of his Corvettes, including the stolen one, looked identical with white bodies, red leather interiors and white wall tires. Molchan said it took him about four years to restore the stolen car, which was worth about $100,000 dollars.

Sorry to hear that such a nice condition car was stolen. Hopefully whoever stole it, didn't hurt it when they took it - no scratches or dings.

It won't get by trying to be registered in North Carolina. We have a very strick title search and visit by the Police to check your numbers before you are issued a permanent title.
