Sweet ride won't drive at Oregon
Are you in the market for a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle? How about one that’s customized to look like an Oregon football helmet? You are? Well you’re in luck, because there happens to be one for sale in Eugene.
The Oregon athletic department is currently holding an auction for the one-of-a-kind ‘73 Bug, with the winner receiving the vehicle. Here are a few photos of the beauty, in all its quirky glory:
If you want more details before you click ‘buy,’ here’s the description, from the website:
A staple at Autzen Stadium for years, now is your chance to own this one of a kind 1973 VW Bug with an Oregon football helmet on top and CD player inside. Imagine parking this at your tailgate on gameday or bringing it to special events. The helmet is green with a yellow "O" and the Oregon license plate on this unique car is "QB" and registration expires 10/03/13.
The seats inside are designed to look like a football with laces and Nike Swoosh.
As of this writing, the bidding is only at $2,500, and the auction ends at 11 p.m. ET Monday, so the car can definitely be had. But before you wager, keep a couple things in mind: you have to be able to pick it up from the university in the next two weeks, and you won’t be able to drive it home — the vehicle doesn’t run.
