File this one under: No Thanks, I’ll Ride My Bike.
Aaron Hernandez’s silver 2006 Toyota 4Runner, which prosecutors claim was the “murder car” used in a drive-by double homicide,is now up for sale on eBay as an “infamous” collectible item, according to CNN.
The eBay description is absolutely shameless:
This is the REAL DEAL !!! Aaron Hernandez’ infamous silver Toyota 4-runner. As seen in the New York Times, we’re auctioning off this piece of Patriots football memorabilia. This Toyota was given to Hernandez to drive by Fox Toyota in East Providence Rhode Island, for guest appearances, and signings at the dealership, as he was rising to stardom as a tight-end tandem with Rob Gronkowski. This is the 4-runner Boston Police had been searching for in connection with a shooting outside a boston nightclub. The vehicle was found in Hernandez, uncles garage in Bristol Rhode Island, and brought to Boston Police departments impound yard, where it has been until last week. The Toyota is just the way it came from the impound yard, and still has the black soot on the map lights, and sunroof switch where the police dusted for finger prints !! The SUV has 53,000 miles on the odometer, and runs great !! The winner of the auction will also receive a framed jersey autographed, by Hernandez himself. Nows your chance to own this infamous piece of famous football memorabilia !!
The 4Runner is owned by Jack Fox, a car dealer in East Providence, Rhode Island, and had been leased to Hernandez. Fox contacted Buddy Clair, a car dealer in Westford, Massachusetts, to put the car up for sale on eBay.
As a sweetener, Clair also threw in a signed Hernandez jersey to the winner of the auction. He initially started the bidding at $100. At the time of me writing this, the bidding has hit $15,100.
