Joe Strummer may never have gotten his hands on that brand new Cadillac he sung about on London Calling, but The Clash's late frontman did have a taste for fine automobiles. The gorgeous ride you're staring at is a 1963 Chalfont Blue Ford Thunderbird. Strummer bought it in 1987 for $4,200. Now in the possession of the Beverly Hills Car Club, it's being auctioned on E-bay. If you're a true boss, you can check the link out here and try your luck in the bidding war. The vehicle will be on sale for 9 more days--bidding started yesterday--with the final day of the sale falling on Strummer's birthday, Thursday, August 21(Strummer would be 62 on this day).
Of course we could go on about how special the car is all on its own-- an original California double black-plate Bullet body style T-bird. But c'mon, you mostly wanna know if Strummer (who passed away in 2002) ever actually drove the thing. Yes, as a matter of fact he did.More »
