Richard P. still enjoying the ’67 Mike got for him in 2007

The 1967 was Corvette # 4 I bought from Mike indirectly through another dealer, the other 3 Vettes I got were a ’82, ’72, and a ’71. I still have them all except Mike sold the ’71 for me back in ’99.

My ’67 is a 427/390 with factory air, 4 speed and with 12,300 miles since new. Not knowing the selling dealer, I called Mike to see if he knew him, and Mike vouched for him as they used to teach Corvette classes together. Still, I was cautious and asked Mike to go in the deal with me as my “insurance policy” that it would indeed be correct as advertised. Mike did, and it was shipped to your store in Anaheim. A real survivor with all original factory components.

Chad brought it up to speed as it had been in storage for 25 years as part of a car collection. It has 25K miles now and still drives like new. I’ve won some trophies with it at cars shows and did some parades too. Brian Wilson, Beach Boy, did a photo shoot in it as he had bought a new one, same color back in ’67. It was to be featured on the cover of his new “Come Back” album.

Of the 3 Vettes I have, it’s my favorite, but my factory original ’72 red/blk Conv, 454 a/c is a close second.

Mike Thumbs up

What Mike Likes about this Corvette:
“This extremely pleasing and sophisticated color combination of Torch Red with Natural Interior complements the lines of the car beautifully. Stop by and have a close look at this Chevrolet marvel of engineering. No other car on the market comes close to delivering a knockout punch like the C8 Corvette. Car and Driver so named it for a reason. And let’s stop saying, for the price, for a moment and recognize that maybe all the other so-called exotics are grossly overpriced.  I’ll bet their makers are scratching their heads wondering how sales will be moving forward.  As you all know, the C8’s are a hot ticket and very hard to come by. This one is sitting in our showroom and ready or immediate delivery. So, don’t miss your opportunity to put this one in your garage today!”

Guinness World Record for of Chevrolet Memorabilia
Being sold by blind auction. Click here to submit your bid.

There are so many items in the Corvette-themed collection that he changed the way Guinness World Records classifies car collecting. Anyone can go on a giant shopping spree and buy a bunch of cars, Mallon said, but accumulating over 2,000 unique examples would take years. Eventually Guinness created a new category for “Corvette items,” and in 2012, Charles was awarded the world record.
