Ace Frehley of KISS Gets Into The Corvette Auction Act

By February 23, 2011

Ace Frehley CorvetteOK, so if the idea of owning rocker Slash's pristine 1966 Corvette didn't appeal to you, maybe your taste in rock matches your passion for mid-70s Stingrays?

In that case, hold onto your bell-bottoms because the legendary guitarist of KISS, Ace Frehley, has sold his 1978 25th anniversary Pace Car edition Corvette through an ebay auction. The car went for a mind-boggling $40,000, probably more due to the KISS star's fame than for the intrinsic value in the car.

Is such a purchase a bad idea? Well, financially speaking, probably so. Ace Frehley, while great in his venue, isn't Steve McQueen or Zora Arkus-Duntov. And now the car's not owned by Ace Frehley, but rather was once owned by Ace Frehley - and that'll make a difference at resale time. But hey, if you've got the cash and you're a KISS fan, have fun - this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
