Mcconaughey's Car Sells For $61,600
The Wedding Planner star, 36, placed his 1971 Corvette Stingray convertible up for auction last month (JUL06), which went on to attract 72 bids before the sale closed earlier this week (ends11AUG06).
MCConaughey is donating proceeds from the sale to Oprah Winfrey'S Angel Network, which helps victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which devastated America's Gulf Coast last August and September (05).
The actor lovingly described the vehicle before the sale, saying, "The lines on this 'vette are my favourite 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, bad a*s American sports car."
