that story has been floating around for about 3 years that I knew of, and the truth is it is still a shame.

Your not going to believe this but today I wondered what ever happened to those cars; the only time I ever called a 900 number. It was $ 1 per call to enter.

When my son was living in Brooklyn Heights, we went over to the warehouse, looked at the Vettes, took pictures and thought about how we could rescue these poor orphans.
I wonder if he still knows they are there.

CryCryCry Cars like that should be driven and enjoyed, not sequestered in some parking ramp...rotting! AngryAngryAngry
 
Of one thing I am certain, as stated, they are worth more in their deteriorating condition than they would be if Peter Max painted them!
 
Upon further review, I noticed the article was dated 5-May, 2005. Are they still there? Question

I always wondered what happened to the VH1 collection. I remember when it was given away. It's a shame that they're just sitting there wasting away, but it probably wouldn't take much to bring them back to life.
