Will You Be The One Who Knocks?
The entertainment industry auction site ScreenBid.com will be auctioning off one of the more prominent vehicles of one of the greatest television shows ever. ”Breaking Bad” will be coming to its Series Finale later this week on the FX network, so it’s no surprise that many of the show’s props are hitting the auction block.
If you’re a fan of the show, you’re probably very familiar with Skyler White’s (Bryan Cranston’s character’s wife on the show) Fullsize Jeep Grand Wagoneer that is constantly sitting in the driveway throughout many episodes. This crimson red ’91 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is going to be auctioned off along with many other vehicles from the show, including Jesse Pinkman’s 4WD Toyota Tercel Wagon, Walter White’s dilapidated Pontiac Aztek, the 6.9-liter IDI Ford F250 Vamonos Pest Control truck and even Jesse’s flashy Chevy Monte Carlo lowrider complete with non-functional hydraulics, gold fist in the rear window and fuzzy dice.
The Grand Wagoneer runs and drives, but leaks oil and has some paint bubbling and chipping. It’s also powered by a solid 5.9-liter 360 c.i. AMC V8 that puts out a whopping 144 horsepower and 280 pound feet of torque. That’s just about enough to move a load of blue crystals or a 2-foot-tall pile of cash in a hurry. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to outrun that pesky brother-in-law DEA agent in his Jeep Commander.
These aren’t normally things that would deter us from buying a Grand Wagoneer but at a starting bid of $7,125, it is a little more than what we would or could shell out for a seemingly clean Grand Wagoneer. Even the old Vamonos Pest Control IDI Ford has a steep starting big of $5,000.
Maybe we’re crazy or just lack common sense but if we had a wad of cash burning a hole in our pocket, we’d likely take Jesse Pinkman’s tricked out Chevy Monte Carlo lowrider even though it got beaten up pretty badly leaving it in a not so drivable state. Sure the hood and trunk latches are bad, as are the door and window seals too and the paint is faded but hey, that car has some really cool character. Who wouldn’t want to cruise that around. Okay it’s maybe it’s just the fact that I grew up in East Los and have a secret infatuation with cars of that nature.
One thing to keep in mind is that all the vehicles are sold as is which in this case could mean they might be riddled with bullet-holes, have wrinkled sheet metal or just plain don't work. That being said, if you've got the cheddar, you might be able to claim one of these as your own.
