Nikki Sixx Sells His Car on EBay

I need another car like I need a hole in my head. And when I say I, I mean we. And when I say we, I really mean my husband. We currently own six cars and one Harley-Davidson. There are two everyday drivers, an old, square body Chevy truck, a Cadillac that's out of commission, a '29 Ford Woody and a '54 Chevy Belair two door hard top. My husband is a bit of a hot rod fanatic.

So when I learned that Nikki Sixx was selling his '71 Chevelle SS 454 convertible on Ebay, I figured we could just add it to our collection. Our next purchase was supposed to be a '67 GTO (for me), but I can make an exception for Nikki's car.

According to the Ebay listing, this was Nikki's every day driver for the past year. It's been totally restored by Red Hills Rods and Choppers Inc. and looks amazing. The winning bidder gets a personalized, autographed copy of Nikki's book, This is Gonna Hurt. If you've got an extra $75,000 lying around, then this gem can be yours. For that kind of money, I'd want Nikki to hand the keys over to me personally and take me for a spin in it.

Whoever ends up owning this badass car is one lucky SOB. Trust me, if I had the money, the auction would have ended as soon as it went up. What an amazing piece of memorabilia. Not only did this muscle car belong to a rock legend, the car itself is a legend. Check out the full listing here. And if anyone would like to buy this for me, I'd be very grateful.

You have no idea how glad I am I came across your blog - - I had no idea there could be another person on the planet who loves the Sixx as much as I do but - - you just might. Mabye ;)

This beautiful man is not only a rock legend, but is truly an inspiration - to have overcome his addictions despite having access to the best of "whatever" out there and the unlimited income to procure said "whatever" - but to CHOOSE to remain sober for 25 years on his own volition shows his tremendous and strong character.

Honestly - it doesn't get better than him, it just doesn't.
