In prison this marijuana dealer decided to become a Born Again Christian after reading a bunch of books about Heaven and strives to become the Christian person that God wants him to be.

Since this man decided to become a Born Again Christian and tries to live a life that is pleasing to God would God bless this man with the 1967 Corvette that he always dreamed of having when he enters Heaven? Also would God bless him with lots of fun and exciting relationships with all of the people who he loves the most?

I really want all of this man's dreams and desires to be fulfilled in Heaven, I think it would be horrible if God threw away all of the things he made for us to enjoy on Earth in Heaven

Also how does God feel about this man not getting the Corvette of his dreams and desires?.
I would have to ask the guy, "what were the intent of your actions in becoming a born again christian" Was it to become a christian or was it, in your view, to please God in hopes that God would reward you with a 67 Corvette. It's all in the intentions and only you know what they are.

GEN 15:1 "After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am your shield, and your exceeding great reward. " His shield of love, joy and truth/wisdom is our reward for putting our faith in Him. God does not pass out rewards in Heaven in measure. We all receive all of Him. He is our reward with all of the Glories of Heaven. MT 20:10" But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny." MT 20:13 "But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do you no wrong: did not you agree with me for a penny?" The reward of the Lord is not measured like earthly rewards however if one is more diligent to pray much or fast when needed and obey like St. Paul did, then more Grace and wisdom are allotted in this life to spend on the building up of the Kingdom. That work carries with it great rewards as you go through life but in the end all receive the fullness of the Lord.

There is not the material things in Heaven that there is in this world, things there are much more important.

According to Kat Kerr's Revealing Heaven there will be, she claims that there will be all kinds of material things for us to enjoy regardless whether if we've had the privilege to enjoy them on Earth or not.

Can't see it considering we will no longer be in these earthly bodies.

We are going to get our bodies back and our bodies will be both physical and spiritual, we're not gonna be disembodied spirits.
