You may not be familiar with Linda Vaughn, but back in the mid-1960s, she was known as Miss Hurst Golden Shifter by just about every racing fan in the United States. The spokeswoman has teamed up with the well-known car designer Doc Watson to auction off a pair of Linda Vaughn LV-1 Chevrolet Camaro models, one convertible and one coupe, and they've just been auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson.

A total of 500 LV-1 Camaros will be produced (50 white and gold convertibles, 50 black and gold convertibles, 200 white and gold coupes and 200 black and gold coupes), but we'd guess none will be as expensive as this pair. When the final gavel fell, a total of $280,000 had been bid, and all of it will be going to Dreamakers, a non-profit that specializes in automotive programs, and The International Kids Alliance Network.

Check out our high-res gallery of live images from Barrett-Jackson above, then watch a video of the live auction below.

      There's nothing wrong with black and gold, but to me that pattern just does not work on that car - especially not on the wheels like that.

      That Camaro is ugly now. And unless there's some engine/suspension work done to it (besides a hurst shifter), her name alone wouldn't add a red cent of desirability to the car in my eyes.

      The right set of black wheels would look better. But it's still over-done.

      Not even sure I can express just how much I hate this color scheme. The Camaro is a great looking car so you had to work pretty hard to have me hate it this much.
