Don’t Be An American Idiot, Buy Billie Joe Armstrong’s Rockin’ Retro Beetle
Copyright © 2016 Bold Ride LLC.
Please excuse the cheesy title, but we couldn’t help ourselves when we found out this beautiful Beetle you see in front of you was owned by Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. We say ‘was’ because his pristine bug is getting ready to cross the auction block at the end of the month.
It was restored sometime between 2008-2009 to the state you see here, with a simple gloss black exterior finish and period-correct red vinyl interior. It was so beautifully finished, in fact, that it won a number of awards before being taken home by the Green Day frontman.
