Since the Ted Nugent Gonzo Auction went live this past Sunday, May 15 at Backstage Auctions (http://www.backstageauctions.com), there has been overwhelming interest. The items viewed most frequently and seemingly garnering the most interest are the 1994 Corvette ZR1, Ted's collection of guitars, his personal record awards and his signature loin cloth and coyote tail Â often used as stage outfits back in the 1970s. The auction will end Sunday, May 22.
Ted's customized Corvette ZR1 was one of only 448 made with the Âspecial power performance packageÂ and boasts a 500 horsepower package. The guitars, loin cloth, coyote tail and awards all come from Ted's performing career, and are a historical part of Ted's legendary musical success. In addition to the music-related memorabilia being offered, Ted is offering his War Gonzo Boat, hunting trophies and hunting related items. The auction truly represents Ted's incredible career and showcases his colorful persona both on and off stage.
According to Backstage Auctions founder Jacques van Gool, ÂThis weekend promises to be a true ÂGonzoÂ weekend when the final bidding kicks in on the last two days of the auction. There are so many historical and unique pieces in this auction that it will be hard for any fan or collector to pass up an opportunity to own a piece of the Nuge.Â Between the music memorabilia, the hunting items and even some of his personal and political treasures, this entire auction is like reading a biography of Ted Â one gets such a great sense of the person as well as the performer just from the pieces he has chosen to offer in this auction.
A portion of the proceeds from the Ted Nugent Gonzo Auction will benefit the non-profit Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids. The auction will end at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, May 22. Those interested in participating can still register at http://www.backstageauctions.com.
