DETROIT (WKZO) -- A Detroit man has possession again of his 1979 Corvette after 33 years.

The vehicle stolen from along Jefferson Avenue in 1981 was located last month in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and traced back to George Talley. General Motors transported the car back to Detroit and gave the keys to Talley in a ceremony Tuesday.

Authorities were recently notified about a pair of Corvettes that someone was trying to register with the same vehicle identification number, according to Talley.
