[photogallerylink id=44414 align=left]With half of our Friday Double Feature dedicated to BRUUUUUUCE, thought we’d make you aware of a used car you might be interested in — [lastfm] Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm]’s ’57 Chevy Bel Air Convertible. The car that inspired songs like “Born to Run” and “Thunder Road” has a stating bid of $390,000 but is expected to draw close to half a million. It includes the original title and insurance card from The Boss.

This was the first automobile Bruce bought after he signed to Columbia in 1972, but was forced to sell the ride in ’76 because the car stood out too much once he started gaining fame and popularity. View the online auction here.
