Iconic Ecto-1 Among Cars, Specialty Items Up For Bid Nov. 1-7
CHICAGO, Oct. 30, 2013 -- VOLO - Have a hankering to own the Ghostbusters Ecto-1? How about a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am KITT exhibition car? Or maybe a one-of-a-kind, screen-used, documented space rover from the 1979 cult classic "Alien?"
Christmas is right around the corner, after all. And anyone looking for that perfect gift for the guy or gal who has everything need look no further than the upcoming Volo Auto Museum eBay auction.
The auction will be Nov. 1-7 and can easily be accessed through a link at www.volocars.com. Participants must have an eBay account.
"When we were putting together our Cars in Wonderland exhibit, we bought a lot of items and there were many things that we took off of display," said Brian Grams, director of the museum at 27582 Volo Village Road, Volo. "We are liquidating multiple items - everything from a 4-foot-tall fiberglass "Aladdin" genie to a gas-powered "Herbie" go-cart - to make way for new exhibits."
Highest bidders will claim most items regardless of price, though a low reserve is placed on the "Alien" rover.
