$690,000 1975 Ford Escort

oldcar.jpg Who in their right mind would cough up $690,000 for a 1975 Ford Escort? Well, if it was Pope John Paul II’s car, the answer is a multimillionaire from Houston. John O’Quinn added the vehicle to his collection of approximately 600 automobiles and intends to place it in a museum that he plans to build. The car is far from mint condition.

Built 30 years ago at a Ford plant in Cologne, Germany, the car sold Saturday in what auctioneer Dean Kruse said was original papal condition – no hubcaps, no air conditioning, no radio, but with several nicks and dents.

Sounds like a ride that could use a ‘Pimping’.
