One of the most interesting exhibits at this year’s LA Auto Show was megastar actor, entrepreneur, comedian, restaurateur and car enthusiast Kevin Hart’s impressive ‘kollection’.

It was the first time the public could get close to Kevin Hart’s favorite vehicles. Taking over the former Porsche exhibit hall, Hart not only displayed his custom classic and luxury cars, but also his other business ventures.

Hart’s 1965 Ford Mustang “Secretary” was a beauty, as were his other exceptional vehicles such as his 1959 Chevrolet Corvette “Mint Condition”, 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle “Darkness”, 1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible “Money”, 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner “Michael Myers”, 1970 Dodge Challenger “Bane”, 1970 Dodge Charger “Hellraiser”, 1987 Buick Grand National “Dark Knight” and 2023 Ferrari 812 Superfast Competizione.

One of his oldest cars on display was the classic 1959 Chevrolet Corvette. This car is in pristine condition and exemplifies the definition of innovation. The Corvette is Chevrolet’s and the world’s longest-running, continuously produced passenger car. When the first Corvette rolled off the line more than 60 years ago, its iconic design, power and handling, make it America’s most beloved sports car.

Chevrolet made Chevelle’s from 1964 to 1977, as an inexpensive, yet powerful car. Hart’s 1966 black Chevrolet Chevelle is one of the 66,843 hardtops made. The difference from the 1966 and 1967 is the front grille of the 1966 is angled back from the top to bottom. It give the headlamps a fierce, more protruding look. Hart’s Chevelle has red rims providing a pop of color.

According to experts the 1970 Chevelle was the most powerful vehicle made with SS454 cars flexing big blocks like the 360 HP LS5 and 450HP LS. The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 LS6 Convertible is the rarest ever made, with less than 20 produced.
