Ever hear of the 1985 IROC Z signed by all the rock stars at Live Aid? It sold for only 22k in 2004

General Motors partnered with MTV to bring two '85 IROCs to the concert to be signed by all the entertainers such as Brian Wilson, Kenny Loggins, Nick Rhodes, Simon LeBon, Eric Clapton, Ozzy, Bo Diddley, Page, Plant, The Four Tops, Tom Petty, Judas Priest, Jagger, Run DMC, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, and Santana. The autographs were clear coated over

 After the concert, the other IROC Z went to the GM Heritage Collection Center and this one went on the GM international auto show schedule.

In 1986, it was raffled off at a concert in New York City named "Drive Aid" All proceeds went to the Live Aid Foundation. A-25-year old computer programmer won the drawing for the Camaro but he realized he could not keep the car or pay the tax on it.

The lucky winner was named Ken Bowser of Colchester, Connecticut. In august of 1986, Ken decided to put the car up sale

He sold it to a collector who basically threw a cover over it and stored it.

Twenty-five years later, the car only has 911 original miles.

Just think, a couple of the autographs are from dead legends, like Tom Petty

Can you imagine what a 1969 Camaro with signatures from everyone who played at Woodstock would be worth?
