VH1 Contest Corvettes Resurface In New York City

Remember in 1989 when VH1 held a contest and gave away a Corvette for every year from 1953-1989? The idea was the brainchild of VH1 producer and Corvette enthusiast Jim Cahill. Contestants called a 900-number and charged $2.00 per call for a chance to win the ultimate Corvette collection. Dennis Amadeo, a Long Island carpenter, was the lucky winner who placed a single call to win the collection. In 1990, Amadeo sold the collection to famed artist Peter Max who held on to the Corvettes until mid-2014.

Now the plan is to offer these Corvettes for auction. The goal is to find a single buyer but if one is not found, the cars will be sold individually. Right now, several of the cars, including the 1953 and 1955 model, are being restored before the sale. Condition of the other cars ranges from a parts car to driver quality. There’s a little something for everyone.
