The Lost Corvette Raffle

A few years back, we talked about the 36 Corvette collection found in a Manhattan parking garage. At that time, nobody knew what would become on the collection.

Originally, the collection was put together by VH-1, as a contest prize.  A Long Island carpenter was the winner in 1988 and sold them to Pop artist Peter Max. Max planned to use the cars as an art project, which probably would have turned them into artwork rather than the original condition they are now. However, not long afterward, Max had some financial issues, and the cars were left alone, over time earning the nickname the “Lost Corvettes.”

Well it seems Max sold the collection to the co-owner of the Gotham Comedy Club, Chris Mazzilli, and two New York City real estate families, the Hellers and the Spindlers.

The collection has been cleaned up, but some of the cars did suffer a bit of damage in the wake of some careless movers who didn’t understand what exactly they were moving, but most are now restored, requiring only light work to return them to their original condition. This is all thanks to a new organization, “Corvette Heroes,” started by Mazzilli, the Hellers and the Spindlers. The plan now is to raffle off each Corvette, one-by-one, in a national sweepstakes to benefit charity.

Featured Car of the Week

1996 Grand Sport Convertible
Triple Crown Award winner!

1996 Grand Sport Convertible Corvette

What Mike likes about this car:
“With ZR-1 production ending the previous year in ‘95 and C4 production as a whole coming to an end in ‘96, Chevrolet wanted the fourth generation Corvette to go out with a bang!  And that’s what they did!  For those of us that always felt the fourth generation Corvette never got the R-E-S-P-E-C-T it deserved . . . Behold Grand Sport!  Only 1000 of these Special Editions were built.  Under the hood sat a one year only LT4 engine putting out a “conservative” 330hp, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.  Add in the optional revised Real Time Damping suspension system and you’ve got the ultimate C4 Corvette Convertible!  I think you’ll agree it’s a great ride!”

Happy Throttling!
