click above to view more images of Manny's 1967 Lincoln Continental

Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez may be one of the greatest pure hitters in the history of Major League Baseball, but the world champion slugger has at times been maligned for his lack of heart on the diamond. Very few people are questioning the perennial all-star's heart outside work, however, after he donated his gorgeous custom 1967 Lincoln Continental to charity. The immaculate blue convertible comes equipped with suicide doors, a 500-cubic-inch Ford Racing powerplant, a spotless engine bay, modernized interior, and some serious DUBs. The '67 Continental has only 72 miles post rebuild, and the plush ride provided by the air suspension will make you think you're driving in, well, a 2008 Lincoln.

The charity involved is Boston's Franciscan children's hospital, and while bidding on eBay started at $30,000, it has quickly risen above $70,000. As badly as the Red Sox wanted Alex Rodriguez instead of Manny, the Dominican slugger has delivered two Series titles and a helping hand in the community, as well. Thanks for the tip, Nick the Hammer!

      That might be a nice car if the rims were switched back to something reasonable.

      This car was built by 'Rad Rides' - Troy Trepanier. His workmanship is always over the top and immaculate. I'm sure Manny paid $200K+ for this build.
