One lucky winner will drive around in style in this mint condition 1967 black Pontiac Firebird. “Niobe’s (Jada Pinkett Smith) muscle car was cast to contrast Morpheus’(Laurence Fishburne) boxy “suicide door” Lincoln and its principle scenes took place in our ode to My Dinner with Andre, the car chase scene. Originally there were three stunt cars used in the filming of Reloaded, two of which were totaled,” says Andy Wachowski. “This is a priceless opportunity to own a piece of cinematic history and provide much needed resources for classrooms on DonorsChoose.org.”
The auction is live now through June 21 at ebay.com/matrix. Managed by auction management firm, Auction Cause.
