Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale is just around the corner and there are some amazing cars up for auction. My favorite by far is the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing owned by Clark Gable (the actor). Gable purchased it new at Mercedes-Benz of Hollywood. List price was $7,295. After Gable’s death in November 1960, ownership was passed to Harry Haeigen, cartoonist and Gable’s publicist. Title passed to Charles Wood, owner of Grand Stand Amusement Park in 1975. Since then it’s changed hands again and now it’s up for auction!
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before but the 300SL is my ultimate dream car but I ideally want black with red… I’d settle for this if perhaps Craig Jackson decides to send it my way!
Just last month Chad Ochocinco let his twitter followers know he’d sold his matte grey Rolls Royce Phantom to rapper French Montana (yeah, we’d never heard of the guy either) but from the looks of this current eBay listing, French Montana may have been in over his head. The Rolls Royce is already up for grabs on eBay with a buy it now set at $139,888.
Hey, ballin’ isn’t cheap. I guess French Montana just couldn’t keep up.

Shaq’s 2011 Porsche Panamera was recently up for sale on eBay. The Panamera has a few customizations from West Coast Customs including, Modulare Wheels and a little extra leg room (of course). You can check out the video below to get a better look at the car and take a look at all the details here. Had anyone seen Shaq with this Panamera before? We wish we would have spotted him behind the wheel!
“If you like your music loud and obnoxious you have found your dream machine” at least that’s what the ad says..
DMX’s Mercedes-Benz CL500 is up for sale on eBay with a ‘buy it now’ of $21,500. DMX added his personal touches to the car with a $20,000 Phoenix Gold Sound System and 20 x 9.5” chrome Lowenhart Wheels. The car also had the German LORINSER package that includes spoilers, side sill skirts, sport suspension and free-flow exhaust system.
