Cary man wins first Vette sold by Gary Lang

McHENRY – Jim Verseman of Cary was the winner of the first Chevrolet Corvette sold by the Gary Lang Auto Group.

Verseman won the car in a drawing held Saturday at the dealership, 1107 S. Route 31, McHenry, as part of Gary Lang’s 30th anniversary celebration.

“We wanted to do something special for our 30th anniversary,” said Gary Lang, president of the Gary Lang Auto Group.  “This was the first Corvette we sold in 1983 and I bought it back from a collector. It only had 125 miles on it. The car was a 1984 Chevy Corvette, as there was no 1983 model year for Corvettes.”

Lang said there were more than 1,000 entries for the drawing. Thirty Schaumburg baseball ticket packages and 60 Gary Lang goodie bags were given away as consolation prizes.

“I’ve never won anything like this before,” Verseman said.
