If you came of age in the ’80s, then there’s a good chance that the J. Geils Band provided some of the soundtrack. The band’s leader also loved cars, and sadly he passed away this April. Several of his cars and bikes will be offered during Mecum’s upcoming Monterey sale, including this 1966 Maserati Sebring. The car had been hit by a bus, and the former rockstar was in the middle of putting it back together when he died from natural causes.

Seen a cool car for sale that we should feature? Email us the link.

Pretty sure he was boyhood friends with our own TeamEvil. Another one of their buddies did the voice for Ren and Stimpie as well as other voice rolls.

I feel like this one isn't getting the recognition it deserves, sadly I can only vote you up once.

I kind of want that. I have neither the room or the money, but it looks like my kind of project.

on a related note: Why do all the vintage cars I can afford look like a cardboard box or a trashcan, and the ones I want I can't afford?

Where on earth does one find a 'doghouse' fer this here sled? And correct me if I'm wrong, but does Maserati have a similar restoration facility as found in Modena?

Someone here needs to buy this and bring it back to life...and then it needs to be in GRM in a centerfold.
