    Exclamation Peter Max staring down $1M lawsuit over Corvette collection

    Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Auctions, Government/Legal, Chevrolet, Ownership


    Pop artist Peter Max recently sold off his collection of 36 vintage Chevrolet Corvettes - one each from 1953 to 1989 ­- for an undisclosed amount. The new owners have already announced plans to restore some of them and auction the models off sometime soon. Up until then, the sports cars had been languishing in various garages around New York City for decades and were caked in dust and grime. However, Max's end of the transaction has just become more complicated, because two men are suing the artist claiming he employed them to complete the deal first.

    The men allege that Max hired them to broker the sale of the 36 Corvettes in exchange for a 10-percent commission, according to the New York Post. They claim to have emails and text messages proving the existence of the deal, and are taking Max to court for $1 million over the squabble.

    The collection of Corvettes was amassed in 1989 as part of a prize package from the television network VH1, and Max bought the cars from the winner intending on using them for an art project. He never got around to it, though, and parked the sports cars around New York, until he finally sold them over the summer.Peter Max staring down $1M lawsuit over Corvette collection sale originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:30:00 EST.

    I love Peter Max. I had bed sheets by him when I was young. Great Pop Artist. Poor businessman though. If he painted those cars they would be worth a fortune.
