The music channel, VH1, hosted a competition in 1988 where people had to call into the studio at a cost of $2 in order to enter to win the grand prize of 36 Chevrolet Corvette cars (all models from 1953 to 1989 (model 1983 was missed, because in his time was taken out of production)). Dennis Amodeo won the competition but received money in place of the cars as a contemporary American artist, Peter Max, wanted to use the collection for his work. The cars remained parked in a garage for over 25 years and have only now been sold to a family who are planning to refurbish these vintage collector’s items.
An eBay user has listed this enormous collection of games and consoles for sale at the staggering price of $550 000! According to the seller, approximately 50% of the consoles and 85% of the games are in excellent condition and some even come packaged in their original boxes. He will deliver to anywhere in the world. Any takers?
