For Sale...Legendary Owner!

Bruce Springsteen's first car, a yellow 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible with flames on the hood and side, is being auctioned off. He bought it on May 21st, 1975 for $2,000, and reportedly wrote the lyrics for "Born to Run," "Thunder Road" and "Backstreets" in it. In his book Songs Springsteen wrote, "In '70's New Jersey, the car was still a powerful image." The original vehicle registration, temporary insurance card and Allstate insurance card in Springsteen's name and address are included with the car, which is currently on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Springsteen sold the car in 1976 and bought a 1960 black Corvette, which he still owns. The bidding starts at $390,000.
