James Garner's famous Firebird was up for auction at Barrett Jackson last night.

Anyone who has seen the show will recognize the plain Jane car that Rockford drove around. The cars were actually equipped with 400s but were stripped down to look like the cheaper versions that a broke detective might be able to afford.

Wow! The car sold for $115K.

James Garner was also a stock car driver too. For real.

He probably did a lot of his own stunts for his show.

My mom had that exact car when I was a young lad. Such lame coolness.
