Stars & Their Cars: ‘Vettes That Rock (Photos)
Corvettes of the Rich & Famous Brings Rockin’ Shots of Superstars and Their Equally Legendary ‘Vettes to Pinterest
Rocker Bruce Springsteen famously sings about oozing down the street in his girlfriend’s pink Cadillac. But the iconic singer himself prefers the equally legendary Corvette. In fact, Hollywood’s biggest A-Listers seem to love ‘Vettes. And nowhere is that more evident than on our favorite Pinterest page of the moment: Corvettes of the Rich and Famous.

Springsteen’s 1960 Corvette Ragtop garnered national attention in 2013. That was the year he loaned his prized possession to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where he was inducted in 1999. The top-of-the-line 1960 ‘Vette features a 240 horsepower engine and a Powerglide transmission. It also has aluminum heads and fuel injection. The classic cra is one of The Boss’ favorite rides.
