Madoff's Shaggin' Wagon Sold

Were thinking to yourself at some point over the weekend that it'd be pretty sweet to roll up to the office (or a date, whichever) in Bernie's Benz? Well too slow to the draw, hombres. The Ponz Master's ride, which went to auction October 23, has been spoken for.

A New Jersey man scooped up the jailed Ponzi schemer's ride for the cut-rate price of $14,250 on Friday after it went on the block at a U.S. Marshal Service auction in East Brunswick, N.J.
"I enjoy the historical significance of the car," said proud new owner Gregory Przybylski. "I just don't know if it's good or bad history."

Bidding on the station wagon with 41,712 miles started at $15,000, but quickly plunged to $10,000 when no one bit. After a brief flurry of bidding, Przybylski snagged Madoff's black 2001 E 320 - whose fancy extra touches include a black leather interior and a car phone.

Still up for grabs, and worth some serious consideration, is Sam Israel's get-away RV.
