According to FoxNews.com, POISON frontman Bret Michaels's personal 1969 Camaro snagged a whopping $200,000 — with a signature guitar and lifetime backstage pass to his concerts thrown in for good measure — at the 40th annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction on Saturday, January 22 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
An avid car and motorcycle enthusiast, Michaels was recently named People magazine's "Survivor of the Year" and Fox411's "Celebrity of the Year." In May 2010, he was hand-picked as Donald Trump's Season 3 winner on "The Celebrity Apprentice".
Michaels owned this tight, fast and fun 1969 Camaro that has been featured on MTV's "Cribs", VH1's "Rock Of Love", VH1's "Bret Michaels: Life as I Know It", and in his latest video "Driven". This custom dream machine sports a custom Moonbeam silver paint job with black racing stripes and black leather interior.
As frontman of legendary rock band POISON, Michaels has sold over 29 million records and scored an amazing 14 Top 40 hits, including the timeless #1 smash single "Every Rose Has its Thorn", his solo country crossover hit "All I Ever Needed", and his rock hit "Go That Far". As an actor, Michaels has made regular appearances on multiple hit television shows and starred in his hit reality show, "Rock of Love with Bret Michaels", which became the highest rated series on VH1. His most recent show, "Bret Michaels: Life As I know It", still remains one of the top-ranking shows on the network.
