American Lottery Winner Denied Corvette Prize

American Lottery Winner Denied Corvette Prize

Imagine the following scenario: you buy a scratch-off lottery ticket and, against all odds, win the grand prize: a brand-new 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray worth up to $107,000 along with $250,000 in cash. That’s what happened to Dennis Kahler from Georgia last month. Unfortunately, the Georgia Lottery officials cannot provide the car because they can’t locate one at a dealership.

Corvette Forum reached out to Kahler who explained that immediately following his lucky day, lottery officials sent him a letter confirming his win. Officials were then obligated to locate the Corvette of Kahler’s choice at local and area dealerships. Kahler knew exactly the spec he wanted: a Rapid Blue 2LT Z51 valued at $80,465, so he’ll receive an additional $26,535 in cash once the deal is done. Sounds fairly simple. Only it wasn’t.
