DETROIT - A Michigan man is reunited with his 1979 Corvette that was stolen out of a parking lot in Detroit 33 years ago. 

General Motors says 71-year-old George Talley received the car Tuesday at the automaker's world headquarters in Detroit.

Talley last saw his car in 1981. The car was found in Mississippi in June. Talley says he was told the car was still running and had 47,000 miles on it. 

GM Product Development Executive Vice President Mark Reuss offered to ship the car back to Detroit. GM says Talley has owned three other Corvettes, but the 1979 model was his favorite.
