Obama's old Chrysler offered on eBay for $1 million

From the Washington Post - If you’ve got $1 million and a burning desire for a 2005 Chrysler 300C once driven by the then-senator, you can snag it on eBay. Obama leased the car until 2007, when he replaced it with a greener Ford Escape hybrid, reports CNN. Chicago’s Tim O’Boyle bought it from a showroom — only 20,800 miles on it — and tried to auction it off after the 2008 election. Jokers ran the price up to $100 million. Ha! No sale. Hoping to capi­tal­ize on the campaign season, O’Boyle got serious again two weeks ago and re-listed the car — with pre-screening and a $2,000 deposit required to bid. ”Please understand that the $1 million dollar starting price is not a joke,” reads the listing. The current Blue Book value of the Chrysler is around $14,000. The auction ends Wednesday night. As of press time, exactly zero bids. Read more

Interesting parallel of concepts. This president also has a grandiose sense of self worth as well.
