A used car dealer in New Jersey is trying to make a profit off of John F. Kennedy Jr.’s Saab 900 by selling it for $100,000 on eBay.

For those of you that think the price is fitting, a 1994 Saab 900 in excellent condition and low miles typically would sell for about $4,700 on any used car lot. So this Garden State used car dealer is marking the price up by $95,000. This car was JFK Jr.’s daily driver at the time of his death in 1999, and has been stored ever since the tragic accident. The Saab has just 30,500 on the odometer and seems to be in pretty good condition. The car comes with all the proper documents proving the link to the Kennedys including JFK Jr.’s license. The dealer has also shown the respect and restraint one would expect from a New Jersey used car dealer, caps lock and all:

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE OPPORTUNITIES THAT COME AROUND ONCE IN A LIFETIME TO OWN A PIECE OF CAMELOT FROM THE KENNEDY DYNASTY. THIS CAR WAS PARKED FOR OVER 10 YEARS, BUT ONLY UNTIL NOW IS IT BECOMING AVAILABLE FOR SALE….

JOHN F. KENNEDY, JR. WAS A BELOVED PERSON THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, IT IS THE FIRST TIME THAT HIS PERSONAL VEHICLE IS BEING OFFERED FOR SALE. IMAGINE ACTUALLY OWNING THIS VEHICLE IN YOUR CAR COLLECTION, MUSEUM OR SIMPLY IS THE BEST CONVERSATION PIECE EVER. WE ARE SURE THAT YOU CAN FIND MANY VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE SHOWING JOHN AND HIS WIFE CAROLINE GETTING IN HIS SAAB ATTEMTING TO AVOID THE PAPARAZZI IN NEW YORK CITY.

So far there are no offers with eight hours left in eBay the auction.
