[VIDEO] First 10 Winners of the Lost Corvettes Receive their Cars in Times Square Ceremony

A couple weeks back we told you about the first 10 of 36 winners of the Lost Corvettes Giveaway had been selected. As the Lost Corvette’s Giveaway benefits veterans charities, it was only fitting that the big reveal for the first 10 winners should occur on Veteran’s Day.

The non-profit group Corvette Hereos officially gave away those first 10 cars with eight of the winners in attendance during a ceremony held in Times Square. The first slate of winners has known they each won a Corvette, but they didn’t know which of the cars would be theirs to take home.

“We’re giving away 10 of the cars from the sweepstakes of 36 and today, eight of 10 winners are here to get their cars today,” Chris Mazzilli of Corvette Heroes said.

As the eight winners gathered, Mazzilli went down the list of each of the first 10 Corvettes and officially named the winner for that car. The models years that were given away in the first slate are 1954, 1957, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1972, 1975, 1979, 1986, 1988.

The winner of the 1975 Corvette was Thomas Barnes of Brick, New Jersey. Tom is also a veteran having served in the Army National Guard during the Vietnam War and is a Corvette enthusiast who has owned Corvettes since the 80s. “It’s the American car, always has been since 53, they’re very unique from three blocks away you can pick out a vette,” Barnes said.

There are still 26 amazing Corvettes remaining to be won from the “the greatest barn find in automotive history” with all ticketholders still eligible for the second drawing that will be held on or around March 31, 2021. If you want to better your chances, you can double your entries now!
