Does Bret Michaels need money to pay his medical bills?

Bret Michaels sold one of his prized possessions over the weekend.

According to Barret-Jackson, the 1969 Chevy Camaro went for 220 thousand dollars at auction. It fetched such a pretty penny not only because it was a celebrity who owned it, but it also boasted a custom stereo, custom brakes and a custom engine. It was also featured on MTV's Cribs, and Bret's two reality shows, VH1's Rock of Love and Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.

The auction comes at a curious time as Bret is scheduled for heart surgery today.
