Everyone knows his birth to run, devoted to his car at the time, and now the “boss” is saying goodbye to his beloved.
Who has never sung? The legendary song written, sung and performed by Bruce Springsteen. A real hit that changed the career of the “boss” forever. His career changed radically, he made him known all over the world and showed him on the Olympus of Rock, an Olympus that he never left after so many years of his career.
However, this is not the only song by the American singer-songwriter dedicated to an instrument. Born to Run is, in fact, dedicated to his car at the time, but his album of the same name was full of meaning and, most importantly, like the end of the American dream. However, Springsteen is a big fan of cars, especially American classic cars. Another song of his is called Cadillac, no further explanation needed.
Chevrolet Chevelle: This car is one of Bruce Springsteen’s “ideas”.
A very long walk, the president’s march and among his pearls there is a “street race”, in which the American artist mentioned the V8 engine of his Chevrolet Chevelle. A machine that hit the market in 1969. And this machine can be bought today, because this gem was auctioned at the specialist site Mecum Auctions.
Needless to say, this is a truly one-of-a-kind piece that enthusiasts and collectors have been searching for for years. A type of car that will definitely have a strong re-evaluation over time. Not the first series of this car, dating from 1964 to 1968, the car that Springsteen sang was the second generation Chevelle.
A completely redesigned version, with a different style from its predecessor. It also came in several body styles, including a two-door coupe, four-door sedan, station wagon, and convertible. It was equipped with a 300-horsepower V8, the most powerful in the Chevrolet range, and there was also a 140-horsepower six-cylinder version.
From Springsteen to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland
Not only did Bruce Springsteen sing this car, but he also drove it from 1981 to 1987. Then the boss decided to sell it to his recording engineer: Toby Scott. Over the years, the American Chevelle guitarist has then undergone a color change from Midnight Black to LeMans Blue, with the smooth white top matching the color of the leather interior. A career that went hand in hand with the singer, ending up in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, along with a skateboard, which Springsteen also used, another great passion of his boss especially when he was young, as well as music and motors.
