Bob is a Corvette enthusiast. One day, his Corvette is stolen.

He contacts the police to report the car stolen, then files an insurance claim, and he gets his insurance check for the stolen car.

Bob uses the insurance money to get a replacement Corvette.

But a few days after getting a new Corvette, the phone rings. It's the police calling to say they found his car and he can come pick it up.
