36 cars and 36 winners... all for a great cause!

Peter Max became a household name among car enthusiasts when his collection of 36 Corvettes was found wasting away in a New York parking garage. The collection eventually sold to the current owners who created Corvette Heroes as a way to raffle off all 36 cars to benefit the National Guard Educational Foundation.

Most of the cars have been restored or repaired from the dirty, grimy condition they were found in, and now they're ready for new homes. The sweepstakes began on July 1, 2019 and it will end on April 30, 2020, and the winners will be selected on May 15, 2020. To enter for your chance to win one of these Corvettes, you have four options: make a tax-deductible donation via the website or toll-free number to receive an entry ticket, receive a complimentary entry or send a self-addressed postage paid envelope to the NGEF to receive a free entry. If you're buying a ticket, prices range from $3 for a single ticket or $5,000 for 7,200 tickets (or $1.44 per ticket) – at that price, that's less than the fee VH1 charged back in 1989.

These cars were originally part of a massive giveaway by VH1 30 years ago that required people to call a 900-number to register, each phone call cost $2. Dennis Amodeo was the lucky winner, but he almost immediately sold the collection to artist Peter Max who had a grand plan of turning each car into its each piece of art. As is the case with some projects, Max's got the best of him and the cars ended up sitting and rotting away for 25 years.

Today, the Corvettes are valued from up to $500,000 for the '53 'Vette to $10,000 for most of the C4 Corvettes.
