You would have thought that being one of the most beautiful women in the World, for some time, would make one of your former cars worth a little extra, wouldn't you? Multi award winner Sharon Stone's personal car, a 1979 MGB Roadster, was donated by Sharon and her tax accountant, Marissa Chien EA, to be auctioned for charity at Bonhams The Hollywood 100 Sale benefiting Project Angel Food in June 2006. The 1979 Roadster (VIN GHN5UL499442G) came with a hard top, soft tonneau cover and JVC CD player and it had had covered 49,800 miles. The car had been recently repainted in 2008 although the colour had been changed from White to Green at some time. It was said to be in excellent condition. It was estimated at US$ 10,000 - 30,000. But it did not sell.

It was then displayed for sale at the Auto Collections at The LINQ Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas priced at US$18,500. In three years, it did not sell. It finally sold in 2009 at a Mecum Auction for a mere US$5600 or £3,300]
