Not long ago I posted up that soccer star David Beckham’s 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo was up for sale on eBay. It’s a nice car, but it was designed specifically for his specifications with the number “23” monogrammed in the seats, wheels and floor mats. The more I thought about it, the more I thought that there was no way in hell I’d purchase that car. To me a car is such an expression of who you are as a person. By and large we buy our automobiles based on the way they make us feel and perform. To me celebrity cars are nothing more then conversation pieces that are used by those who purchase them. I suppose in some cases a name may ad to the value, but for the most part I can’t see it being anything more than that.
Now, if the car has pedigree to it, meaning if it is a championship winning racecar, movie car or something along those lines, then there may be a possibility. At the end of the day though who the hell really cares that Paris Hilton’s old Range Rover is sitting in your garage. I don’t know, maybe it’s me but I just don’t see the point.
