Kiss’ Paul Stanley has a list longer than my arm when it comes to achievement, from driving a New York cab to his illustrious career as a singer-songwriter. Added to his other past times that include painting, being a best-selling author and starring in “Phantom of the Opera,” Paul Stanley can add car design to the list.
The Kiss star helped and worked alongside GM to create a custom Corvette Stingray for last years SEMA show in Las Vegas. Obviously the show has come and gone but he admits using the Stingray as his daily driver – if that isn’t Rock N Roll, I don’t know what is?
Stanley also rated the car 9/10 to Motor Trend and added, “I’ve yearned to be driving an American car without apology,” he says. “I like driving a car that says ‘Corvette’ on it. I like driving an American car because we’ve always had capabilities to turn out great cars, and for reasons that are lost to me, we chose not to. But as the competition became stiffer and as the car industry seemed to be folding, I guess the message was resounding, and lo and behold, here were some great cars.”
Stanley’s also owned this black on black Mercedes-Benz SL500 that he decided to part ways with back in 2011.
