Mini auctions Kiss Countryman cars to fund global relief effortsTue, 31 May 2011 00:00:00 -0700
If Dad's Gene Simmons poster is starting to lose its luster, you should probably sign on to eBay to try to win him a custom-painted Mini forever emblazoned with that tongue.
Mini and the rock bank Kiss partnered to auction four Countrymans (Countrymen?) that are custom-painted with the iconic likeness of each band member, in a 10-day Father's Day charity auction that started on May 29.
Kiss band members joined Mini at the New York auto show in April to unveil the four vehicles now up for auction.
Proceeds will go to UNICEF to help children in Japan and toward other emergency relief efforts around the globe.
