Description

Lot #545 - The year was 1985 and music legends Bill Graham, Bob Geldof, Larry Magid and Allen Spivak produced one of the biggest concerts ever, named "Live Aid." Over 1.4 billion people worldwide watched this global jukebox on TV. The mission of Live Aid was to get the world to come together and make people aware of world hunger. General Motors partnered with MTV and Radio City Music Hall to plan there own special idea. Their idea was to bring two of America's newest flagship sports cars, the 1985 Camaro IROC Z, to the concert which was held at JFK stadium and these vehicles would then be signed by all the entertainers who performed there. This is one of those cars. With almost 100 signatures on this car carefully preserved under a layer of clear-coat paint, this IROC Camaro represents the amazing effort of so many musicians actors, celebrities and uncounted support staff to help in the fight against hunger. Among the signatures found on this car you will find names such as Chevy Chase, Don Johnston, Cher, Bette Midler, Jeff Bridges, Eric Clapton, Ozzy Osbourne, Bo Diddley, Jimmy Page, Tom Petty, Mick Jagger, Patti LaBelle, Run DMC, Neil Young, REO Speedwagon, Carlos Santana, and the list goes on and on. After the concert, the other IROC Z went to the GM Heritage Collection Center and this IROC Z went on the GM international auto show schedule. This car was the one pictured and mentioned in all the press such as The Washington Post, The Hollywood Reporter, New York Post, People, USA Today, New York Daily News, Automotive News and New York Newsday. In 1986, it was raffled off at a concert held in New York City named "Drive Aid". All proceeds went to the Live Aid Foundation. 25 years later, the car is 100% original. This car includes a plethora of documentation and memorabilia, such as multiple magazines, a Live Aid concert ticket, T-shirt, a Live Aid button, framed advertisement, custom display, list of the signatures, and much more. This car currently has only 755 actual miles and is a great addition to any car or music lover's collection, and is a true piece of automotive and music history.
