The late Layne Staley’s car is being sold over a decade after his death. The car is a 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am and is being sold by Layne’s father Phil Staley. Tavis posted the following on the official Alice In Chains forum:
Hey folks my name is Tavis… I have worked for AIC for a long while. Some of you already know me. Laynes’ Estate asked me if I would sell his car for them and I of course said I would. We wanted to give you fine folks first option on purchasing the car being it would actually mean something more to you than a non fan… I will post some Pics. The car is a 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trams Am with 26,000 miles on it. It is fully loaded with T-Tops and the Ram Air and WS6 package upgrades with dual leather electronic controlled bucket seats, stereo upgrade package with a trunk mounted 12 disc changer. 6 speed Transmission. there are many options on this car that Layne personally ordered from the factory… I will not get into a debate about price being it will be through private messages. any questions about the car make here please… Thanks in Advance, Tavis
Layne discussed his purchase of the car when he and his Alice In Chains bandmates were interviewed on Rockline in July 1999. When a fan called in and asked Layne what he was excited about in life, Layne said, “Actually I ordered a new car I’m pretty excited about that right now.” Staley then joked, “I wasn’t even planning on buying a car, I just wanted to go in and boss them around.” After Sean Kinney and Jerry Cantrell talked about what they were most happy and excited about, Layne quipped back, “Hey you guys wasn’t he just asking me? Shut up.”
