Pope's Car on Ebay!!!!!!!

Post by Aquanori » Mon May 02, 2005 1:18 pm

The Car of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger is on Ebay. He used the car before he became Pope when he wanted to drive arround unnoticed.
Here's the link:

this is a little off topic but i noticed while watching Channel One, it's like a new show for highschools, that they wrote and said every cardinals name wrong, at least i think. they were saying 'Cardinal so in so' rather than 'first name Cardinal last name'.
The Roman Empire did not create prosperity and come to be feared by having meetings and doing paperwork; they did this by killing all who opposed them.

Have you seen the current price on the pope's car?
we should all go in together and buy it as a community.

The Auction already ended, today... it sold for 188.938,88 Euros, which is more in dollars (i don't know the current exchange rate...)

And if you wanted to buy it, you would have to go to Germany and pick it up, the seller only does local pick-up...

you want to know what makes it even funnier, I found out, after a little digging and a small amount of help from my dad, that it was owned by a guy whose full name was Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger and is in no way related to the current Pope.

Who ever paid that ungodly amount was seriously ripped off.

$1 USD = 1.28029 EUR

So, 188,938.88 Euros = 147,575.07 dollars?

Is my math correct on that?

It maybe off since I am still tired from work.

Oh, it is not a problem. It is a common mistake. I am sure you are not nearly as embarrased as the person who had the winning bid. Just imagine how sick to thier stomache they are.
