ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  An Albany car dealer says burglars "devastated" his business overnight. He hopes you can help him get back a stolen classic car.  

Four cars were stolen from Yourway Auto Sales on East Oglethorpe.  

Thieves got into the office by breaking through a window air conditioner. They also stole two computers and a set of tires and wheels and ransacked the office. One of the four stolen cars was this 1972 Corvette. 

"You scrape and scrape and scrape to make ends meet in these rough times, and then something like this happens," said Yourway Auto Sales owner Dwight Kulbe.  And even though insurance pays you back, you're devastated for those two or three weeks it takes to clear everything up."

The thieves took all the car keys from the dealership, so they had to change the locks on the cars that were not stolen.

If you see this Corvette, they hope you'll call Albany Police or CRIME STOPPERS at 229-436-TIPS.
