eBay Find of the Day: Dr. Death's Cadillac
It never ceases to amaze us how many autos with interesting histories go up for sale on eBay. Only last month, we saw Sean Connery's BMW 6-series go under the virtual hammer and now we find a Cadillac once owned by Dr. Death himself, Jack Kevorkian, listed in eBay's automotive section.
For those who don't recall, Kevorkian was the controversial American pathologist made famous because of his support for euthanasia for terminally ill patients, and is most noted for his profound statement, "dying is not a crime." Kevorkian even went to jail in 1999 for second-degree murder when he was accused of poisoning a 52-year old Michigan man a year earlier.
Being a native of the motor-state, there is only one make a well-to-do doctor would have on their list, and that's Cadillac. The car is a 1989 white DeVille that's been signed by the man himself and comes with all the original registration details for the would-be buyer. There are plenty of pics posted by the seller including some of Kevorkian actually signing the car.
Thanks for the tip, Niels!
