The first Corvette Bill Mullis bought many years ago, was black. He liked the way it looked and soon realized that in some cases, black Corvettes were few and far between. So, he accepted a personal challenge: Acquire as many black Corvettes covering the formative years of the brand, as possible.
He ended up with a more than impressive collection of shiny black Vettes & other Chevy icons. And while the collection was never formally open to the public, our cameras spent a day and a half taking it all in. And now, you can, too...here.
Regrettably, the heart of the collection, 23 Corvettes from 1954 through 1969, was sold off during a Mecum Auction at Bloomington Gold in June of 2011.

You may need to fasten your seatbelt.
