2011 Cadillac Escalade Going, Going, Gone
So maybe now that she's a mommy she's trading in her old car for a minivan? An eBay auction for Snooki Polizzi's old Escalade closed yesterday at $77,510.
Snooki's $77K richer today: Her old Cadillac Escalade sold for a cool five figures yesterday on eBay.
The pink-and-black Caddy was, as the eBay listing read, "customized with many add ons to her taste." Hot-pink ambient lighting and custom hot-pink wheels? Yes, this is a Guidette-mobile just made for cruising down the streets of Jersey Shore.
Extra reported that the 2011 truck was originally listed for $20,000, but the bids kept going up through the weekend.
The listing read, in part, "This 2011 Cadillac Escalade is currently owned by Nicole Snooki Polizzi. It is the actual car that she has driven in many of her television appearances. The vehicle has been completely wrapped and has been customized with many add ons to her taste and specifications, such as custom wheels and ambient lighting. It has been autographed across the hood by Nicole. This is not a vehicle that you can buy everyday, it is an opportunity to own a piece of pop culture history!"
Oh, yes, she did autograph the car, in white ink, with, naturally, a heart over the "i" in Snooki.
It's worth noting that the car only had 6,295 miles on it. Did you use it only to go to the grocery store, Snooki?
Apparently, the new owner agreed with Polizzi about the car's "pop culture" value, as similar (non-tricked-out) models were going for tens of thousands less than Snooki's on eBay.
Maybe Polizzi is walking more lately: People reported at the end of January that the Jersey Shore star had shed the 44 pounds she gained during a pregnancy she called "lonely" and was working out with a trainer four times a week.
Snooki also gushed that she was ready for more kids, like, now: "I want to pop out another baby right now! I'm hoping for twins this time. It would be cool to have my kids to grow up close in age, so that's my plan. I don't want to wait to have kids."
