Good Reason This 1983 Toyota Tercel Is A Hot Commodity
It's a vehicular star of hit show 'Breaking Bad'
When you consider intangibles, however, it's no wonder this little four-wheel-drive junker might be one of the most sought-after vehicles on the used-car market today.
The car officially belongs to Mike Faris Auto Wholesale in Albuquerque, N.M. Unofficially, it belongs to Jesse Pinkman, the fictional crystal meth-dealer from the hit show "Breaking Bad."
The Tercel is not the primary one driven by Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, on the show. It's an extra, on hand should something unfortunate happen to the main Tercel. Even as an extra, the car is generating an enormous amount of interest.
Faris reports that offers of more than $2,000 have been received, and that he expects the number to climb. Prospective buyers will need to be patient, however. Faris won't sell the car until producers are done shooting the hit show.
When he does sell the car, Faris tells the New York Daily News that any profits made will be donated to charity.
"When the new episodes start, we're going to sell the car and use the proceeds toward drug-addiction treatment," he said.
