Vice President Joe Biden may not be the Commander-in-Chief, but he's definitely America's Horsepower-Loving-Gearhead-in-Chief. (Is that a thing? It should be if it isn't.) And now you have the chance to own what may be one of his cars.
Up for grabs on Craigslist in Wilmington, Delaware is this 2005 Cadillac STS which the seller claims was once owned by the Vice President himself. He's asking $15,000 for the Northstar V8-powered, all-wheel drive STS with an unspecified number of miles.
The Delaware News Journal and even CBS News have picked up this unusual sale, but honestly, I'm a little skeptical that it is what he claims. Here's how the seller says he knows it was Biden's, according to the newspaper: The car's Bluetooth system had the names and numbers of Beau, Hunter and Jill, Biden's family members — the latter is his wife, Second Lady Jill Biden. He says he hasn't been tempted to call any of them.
I dunno, doesn't that seem a bit suspicious, or at least, easily faked somehow? I'm not saying it's not Biden's car, because it could be, just that I'm not convinced on the Bluetooth thing alone.
Anyway, $15 grand for a loaded STS seems like a decent enough deal, so even if it's not Biden's car it should make its next owner reasonably satisfied. Too bad it won't have the bullet-like acceleration of Biden's beloved new 2015 Corvette Z06.
Thanks for the tips everyone!
