Losing an owner’s manual isn’t a big deal anymore. All the information you need is available online, either from the manufacturer or other people who dealt with the same problem, which is why paying $8,200 for such a thing might seem absurd.
For Charlie Mallon, 54, of Downington, Pa., nothing numbers more greatly in life than his collection of Chevrolet memorabilia.
As a life-long collector and avid enthusiast, Mallon amassed 2,181 different Chevrolet items over the past 40 years. After the better pat of a lifetime’s devotion to his hobby, he finally counted up his trinkets to realize there might be a world record in his future.
Mallon spends a lot of his time travelling as a dealership consultant and says he always made a point to find new Chevrolet collectibles during each of those trips. He also scoops new pieces up as he sees them, most of which are Corvettes.
