The Corvettes at Carlise show is one of the premier annual Corvette shows for owners and enthusiasts alike. The founder of the Carlisle shows, Chip Miller, was one of the giants in our hobby and everyone was pretty shocked when he lost his life nearly 7 years ago to a rare disease known as Amyloidosis. Today, the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation helps raise awareness and funds to find a cure for the disease. The great folks at Barrett-Jackson stepped up on Wednesday evening and this 1973 Red Corvette was auctioned with the proceeds to go to finding a cure for Amyloidosis.
We previewed this auction earlier this week and we are glad to see the selling price hammer for a very respectable $31,000. Chip’s son Lance who now carries the Carlise banner sent us the following note:
Many thanks for helping us spread the word regarding amyloidosis – the disease that took my father’s life in 2004. We were happy the car brought $31,000 for the sale. Life is good! Lance
