Columbine BMW On The Auction Block. Again.

By on March 12, 2006

Last week, eBay told the current owner of the BMW 320i that was once owned by Dylan Klebold that listing it for auction there was in violation of eBay’s TOS banning “Muderabilia”. It’s said that the Columbine killers drove to the school in that car and had rigged it to blow up when first-responders arrived; thankfully that plan failed.

Now the car is back on the block, but with a new approch; the owners have purchased the domain name www.buykleboldsbmw.com, and are running their own auction. Bids for the car will be accepted until April 20, the anniversary of the Columbine killings. So far the bidding is up to $30,000.

Seems to me a really sad commentary on our society, that a high value would be placed on something connected to such a horrific event. If you agree, maybe you can add to their list of hate mail.

  1. I wouldn’t bother with the hate mail. People like this revel in pissing people off. Most hate mail is uninformed jibberish anyway, which only strengthens their resolve to continue what they’re doing and gives them a venue to make line-by-line counter attacks.

    Best just to ignore it, I think.

  2. I dunno… horrific event or not, it’s part of American history. It should be at least worth as much as a record-breaking home run ball, don’tcha think?
