Since the attack, a fund has been setup in Mr. Washington's name at the Charter One Bank in Michigan to help with his mounting medical costs. In order to give a boost to the fund, spy photographer Brenda Priddy has gathered some interesting automotive paraphernalia to sell on eBay -- with all proceeds going directly the the Frank Washington Fund. Click here for the eBay auction page.
The items initially auctioned included:
- A series of five 2008 Dodge Challenger prototype pistol grip shifters from the Dodge Design Studio
- Two original framed mid-engine Corvette sketches from the Corvette Design Studio, circa 1973.
- A rare BMW 'sculpture' model (circa 1981)
- A $1200 Michelin gift certificate.
- A 5-hour Bob Bondurant high-performance driving class
And now, Brenda Priddy, Volvo and the producers of Fast and Furious 4 are teaming up to offer a set of Volvo wheels supplied to the movie. Proceeds from the auction will again benefit the Frank Washington Fund. See the auction here.
