Selling Ice to the Eskimos: Seven Iconic Chrysler Corvettes Restored in Australia Could Return Home

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Neil Fletcher ('Fletch') never did anything by half.  This gentle bon vivant who helped to revolutionise photographic retailing in Australia, purchased his first Corvette as a 50th birthday present for himself.  By the time he succumbed to Alzheimer's disease, he had a stable of seven Corvettes which he lovingly and painstakingly restored.  Those cars are now to be sold by Mossgreen, one of Australia's leading auction houses.
