A Lemon Car

Bruce Springsteen's drummer says vintage car dealer sold him $93K lemon

The longtime drummer behind rock legend Bruce Springsteen will not be cruising around in a glamorous vintage Thunderbird to celebrate his birthday today — but he might be behind the wheel of a $93,785 lemon.

New Jersey native Max Weinberg, who is also the bandleader on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," has filed a lawsuit against a car dealer who promised the musician a vehicle in "suburb condition" (sic), but allegedly sold him a lemon with a leaky transmission, a rusty and greasy underbody, and a bent and welded front frame.

Weinberg, who is an original member of Springsteen's E-Street Band, and who has performed in hits such as "Born in the USA" and "Born to Run," filed the suit March 18 at the Monmouth County Courthouse in Freehold, N.J. — Springsteen's birthplace, which he pays homage to in the song, "In Freehold."

The 54-year-old drummer purchased the gray 1957 collectible Ford Thunderbird for $93,785 from dealer Amos Minter last year in Dallas. He is seeking undisclosed monetary damages under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.
