A collection of 36 Corvettes will play the lotteryJuly 19, 2019
The owner of sports cars of different years is going to get rid of them
More than three dozen Chevrolet Corvette, released between 1953 and 1989, will find new owners with the help of a lottery. The value of them are only a few of the earliest specimens, which are painted in rare colors.
The collection includes 25 cars with automatic transmission and 14 cabriolets, which are not in the best condition. Most of them are covered with a thick layer of dust and have not been used for many years, and some also have visible damage. In many ways, therefore, the current owner decided not to invest in their restoration and distribute the car for free, identifying the “lucky ones” through the lottery.
That was the way with these Corvettes in 1989, the music channel VH1, which played the cars among its audience. Then the whole collection went to a carpenter from Long Island named Dennis Amodeo. Later he resold sports cars to pop artist Peter Max, who was then only occasionally seen behind the wheel of a Corvette.
In 2014, all 36 cars were in the possession of the Heller family, and they remembered the reception used by the VH1. They announced a lottery, which has already begun and will last until April 2020. The winners will be announced on May 15 on History TV.
