"Regardless of whether it matters to them, Maiden not being in the @rockhall of Fame is INSANITY. Regardless of who is writing in or not, the Committee must induct them. They have helped spawn an entire genre of music. What else do you need to do??"

Paul Stanley has been a longtime lover of the Chevrolet Corvette, so it comes as a bit of a surprise that he’s parting ways with his factory-customized 495-horse power 2022 C8 convertible. The serial number is 0001.

He’s selling it with no reserve at the Barret-Jackson auction, June 30th to July 2nd, in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“I would rather draw attention from being understated than overstated; that’s just my preference,” says Stanley, adding that he “couldn’t do it justice. I want to make it available to somebody who might be able to get more out of it, whether it’s to add to a collection or to drive it.”

Priced at around $75,000 for the average consumer, the car has a 6.2-liter V8 paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Stanley had a hand in designing the color, a red mist metallic tint coat, which is the successor to Long Beach Red he helped create when he hooked up with a few Chevy executives in 2013 and helped design a 2015 Stingray model for the 2014 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show.

The winning bidder will also get a signed Ibanez PS120 Paul Stanley Signature guitar.
