Copperfield. Houdini. Penn and Teller. All became household names for their magical stage acts, but when it comes to four-wheeled magic, Tom Spera may have them beat. The Chicago-area magician made this 1984 Chevrolet Corvette appear.
The trick didn’t happen with smoke and mirrors. Rather, its arrival came after years of hard work, determination and saving that spare change he found behind kids’ ears. “I bought the car as a reward from doing magic shows and events. It was a treat and something special that I wanted to have,” the Arlington Heights, IL resident said.
To remind himself how his Chevy chariot came about, Tom had MAGIC emblazoned on the license plate.
