Matthew McConaughey’s 1971 Corvette convertible on ebay, now if only Jon Voight would put his up for auction
Ever want to own the car of someone famous? Jon Voight’s car isn’t available, George Castanza still has that, but you can get the next best thing on ebay: McConaughey’s Car.
Back in 98 I went to a California car show and was lookin at gettin a 1962 Vette, but this 71 Stingray caught my eye. I was at the show for 8Ã‚Â½ hours and I kept circlin back to spend time checkin it out. By the end of the day I drove off in my 1971, mediterranean blue, Chevy Stingray Convertible. I call her Mako…like the shark.”
“The lines on this Vette are my favorite lines on any sports car…itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got the shoulders & the hips. The Vette always has that long front end with the shoulders where the wheel wells come up and then continues on back to where it widens nicely at the hips. This year, Corvette really knocked the design out of the park…itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got muscle and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s built for drivin. You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get it for the gas mileage…itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not a tiptronic Porsche. When you wanna get it, you feel the horse power in your backside. The music in this car is listenin to the engine…for me itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the quintessential, bare bones, badass American sports car.”
“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve gone to Mexico & back in it, driven across Texas in it…lotta late night drives…take off at midnight and get on the open highway with the top down…top was very seldom up in my drives. Enough room in the trunk for one persons back pack, or two for real light travel.”
“I admire and enjoy this car, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a luxury that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m willin to relinquish at this point because I am fortunate enough to have everythin I need, and the sale of it will help so many with the necessities in life…part of stayin connected with an on-goin cause to help those in need for the long term…besides, I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pull my Airstream with it!”
- just keep livin, McConaughey
