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.
The cars range from 1959 to 1998 (with pre-sale estimates in AUD):
