Auction house Bonhams is gearing up for another landmark event, scheduled to take place in just a few days at The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Enthusiasts undeterred by the financial crisis will find all manner of automobile and automobilia at the auction, including several Steve McQueen artifacts, a land-speed record-breaking 1949 Vincent motorbike, and a selection of muscle cars from the collection of action movie star Bruce Willis.

Bruce will be offloading a prized collection of classic American steel, including a pair of Corvette roadsters (an original '57 and a '67 Stingray), a 1955 Chevy Nomad, a '69 Dodge Charger and the piece de resistance, a 1968 Shelby GT500 convertible. The star factor is sure to add to their value, and the latter is expected to fetch upwards of $150,000. For a closer look, head on down to The Petersen, or just click on the images in the gallery below to see what officer John McClane is selling.

        Do you seriously sit at home and make this crap up. I would be embarrassed to write that even under the anonymity of the blog-o-sphere.

        By the way turn your computer off, you just killed a polar bear with your gibberish.

        Don't you get it?

        He is selling because he realizes that his dinosaur-juice swilling car collection is poisoning our planet, melting the ice-caps and endangering the MF polar bears! And doing do far more than all those MF dirty coal burning plants the Chinese are running to make Nike's line of apparel because WJ Clinton signed the Kyoto Accord!

        Jay Leno is next because his collection poses a greater danger to the planet than Brucie Willis and Joe the Plumber together.

        Bruce, you WERE a Great American.

        I hope your snickers grow back!

      nice cars bruce!! which one did she want gone first?and what about the cragars ,huh,punchy?
      • 6 Years Ago
      He must have gotten a deal on 4 sets of those chrome rims.
        • 6 Years Ago
        No kidding! He must have been an investor with Cragar or something! I do like the fact that he kept a classic look with all the cars. I hate seeing classic muscle cars with modern sports car wheels.
        • 6 Years Ago
        that's good man. didnt notice that.
        Cragers for everyone!!!
      • 6 Years Ago
      I bet this has nothing to do with money. I am sure he is just freeing up some space in his garage for some "new" cars.

      Hope he will be donating that money to charity. Does he need funds? Garage space to purchase more?

      Certainly it can not be that he is hurting for money like the rest of us non-actors/Hollywood.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Big deal...

      IT IS NOT THE COAL FIRED PLANTS IN THE WORLD OR THE CARS THAT ARE KILLING THE POLAR BEARS IT IS UNDERSEA VOLCANOS THAT IS MELTING THE ICE IN THE NORTH POLE AND THAT IS THE BEGINING OF THE END OF THE WORLD BECAUSE GOD CONTROLS EVERYTHING AND HE HAS JUST ABOUT GOT FED UP WITH ALL THE SIN IN THE WORLD, AND HE IS GETTING READY TO CLEANSED THE EARTH AGAIN SO IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SAVE YOU HAD BETTER DO IT NOW.............

      nice
      • 6 Years Ago
      Those Corvettes must be very rare. I don't think many of them were made of steel, American or otherwise.
