Mcconaughey Auctions Car For Charity

SAHARA star MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY is selling his beloved sports car to raise money for victims of last year's (05) devastating US hurricanes. The actor will put his 1971 Chevrolet convertible on eBay and donate all proceeds to Oprah's Angel Network's Hurricanes Katrina and Rita recovery - a charity launched by chat show legend OPRAH WINFREY. He tells The Scoop: "The lines on this 'vette are my favorite lines on any sports car. It's got the shoulders and the hips. It's got muscle and it's built for drivin'. "You don't get it for the gas mileage - it's not a Tiptronic Porsche. When you wanna get it, you feel the horsepower in your backside. The music in this car is listenin' to the engine... for me it's the quintessential, bare bones, badass American sports car."
