That's a pricey ride!

Bruce Springsteen's first car, a yellow 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible with flames on the hood and side, has been auctioned off online for $468,000. 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. Included in the sale were the original vehicle registration, temporary insurance card and Allstate insurance card in Springsteen's name. The car 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.
