McConaughey's Car on eBay

7/19/2006 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matthew McConaughey / CorvetteIf you're in the market for a 1971 Corvette convertible you might want to check out Matthew McConaughey's eBay listing.

Matthew McConaughey has put his '71 Vette on the auction block for a good cause. Matthew found the car at a car show back in 1998. At the show's end he was the proud owner of the mediterranean blue muscle car that Matthew says is " ... for me it's the quintessential, bare bones, badass American sports car."

Matthew will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the vehicle to Oprah Winfrey's Angel Network's Hurricane Katrina and Rita recovery efforts. "I am fortunate enough to have everything I need, and the sale of it will help so many" McConaughey writes on the auction site.

It will raise a lot of money for charity, what is the problem with that. You people are so negative. He isn't FORCING anyone to buy the car. That is an ignorant comment. He is a nice guy, doing something that a lot of celebs do, so why are you all hating on him. Give the guy a break!

I agree with Jennifer...sometimes folks on here sound like dead beat loosers.get out from behind your pc, put the donughts down..lets talk about you and see how you feel..it wouldn't be a pretty site.so shut up and learn.. Im not sure that if you know anything about auctions and donations... go to irs.com and learn alittle about tax write off..then come back with some sense. The proceeds from the money are going to a worthy cause.....I can tell that some folks on here could never think outside the box...Way to Go Matt...

I THINK THAT WHAT HE IS DOING IS A NICE GESTURE. HE EVEN SAID THAT HE IS FORTUNATE TO HAVE WHAT HE WANTS AND BY GETTING RID OF THIS CAR AND DONATING 100% TO CHARITY IS VERY THOUGHTFUL. THERE ARE SO MANY VETTE COLLETORS AROUND WHY WOULDN'T THEY WANT ONE THAT WAS OWNED BY A CELEB!? NOT TO MENTION THAT HE IS VERY ATTRACTIVE SO ANYTHING HE DOES IS OKAY WITH ME!

With all the wrong going on in this world why are you guys raggin' on this guy? As far as I can see, as celebs go, he's one of the more benign. Focus on something important will you.

wo wo, tiger watch out and correct your spelling, punctuation and grammar before you get on your soap box and talk about ideas beyond your comprehention. There is a book that will guide you through all those obstacles you have confronted like comas and periods called Strunk and White's Elements of Style. Secondly you are wrong. If old Matt hasn't already donated 50% of his income for the year then his car will be a full tax deduction for the amount the car is purchased for.

I find it extremely amusing that this "scarlet" person chastises someone for spelling, punctuation and grammar mistakes, yet makes several of her own. To wit: It's COMPREHENSION; COMMA. And lastly, you don't end a sentence with "for".

What an idiot.

Scarlet, learn how to use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation before ragging on someone else.

I believe Matthew McConaughey is doing something kind.

There needs to be more kindness in our world!

Talk about losers. this page is full of them. All stars do thins for publicity that is what keeps them going. It is losers who do nothing but sit in front of their computers and spew out hate and negativity. And do nothing good for anyone else but their selfish fat asses.
Thnak god the stars are doing something to help the less fortunate ones in Katrina's path. Becasue if we depended on you ass@@@@@ and this warmonging government of ours the already sad state of the world would be a mess.
So, right on Matthew keep giving and charming the S@@@ out of us.

PEOPLE complain no matter what, How is Mathew forcing someone to buy his car? Did you look at the auction itself one guy is a doctor. (or so it says) I can't believe some of the comments "Hope he wipes off the seats" Where do people come up with this stuff. I rarely comment, but come on. Someone does something for a good cause and they are chastised. Damned if you do Damned if you don't. These type people would bitch if they won the lottery, and I bet they wouldn't do anything to help anyone except themselves. Bless you Matt! If I had the money I would buy it! For 3 good reasons, 1- it would help people, 2- Mathew owned it and 3- because Damn it is a nice car!
