Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong will put two of his personal cars up for auction at Russo and Steele’s Monterey sale on Thursday.

Apparently, Armstrong liked to feel the wind in his moussed hair. Both cars have removable tops.

Lot 5201 is a 1963 Chevrolet Nova SS convertible that Armstrong primarily kept at his home in Newport Beach, California. The car looked to be in good condition and, in a news release, the auction house said the Nova is bone stock.

The car has a 6-cylinder engine paired with an automatic transmission in the floor.

The second vehicle is a 1969 Fiat 500 Soft Top. Like the Nova, this car was kept at Armstrong’s Newport Beach home for his personal use.

It was recently restored to its stock condition and has a clean title in Armstrong’s name.

Each car will come with a bonus: A guitar signed by the five-time Grammy award winner.
