Who wants to buy the Gilmore Girls Jeep?
Yep, somehow a private seller has gotten a hold of one of the Jeeps Lauren Graham used to drive around as Lorelai Gilmore and has put it up for sale on eBay. How do I know it's a private seller? From the disclaimer in itty-bitty type at the bottom of the listing: "This sale is being conducted by a private seller. Time-Warner, Warner Bros., and Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions are not invloved (sic) in this offering in any way."
Anyway, the 2000 Wrangler sport model has all the requisite features: AM/FM/CD player, auto tranny, and a soft-top removable roof. It also has AC, but for some reason it was disconnected for the show; the buyer will have to reconnect it after he or she takes possession of it. It's a cream puff, mileage-wise: only 1200 miles. Apparently Lorelai only drove it to and from church.
The starting bid is $35,000, which seems to be a high price for a used car, but who knows what a fan might pay for the privilege of sitting in the same seat that housed Lauren Graham's butt cheeks for seven years?
(Update: :Looks like the listing was taken down. Maybe someone at Warner Brothers or one of the show's producers got wind of the sale and objected. Oh, well.)
