When the MTV television show "Jersey Shore" first appeared on the tube, who knew it would be such an explosive success for the then struggling network? I don't think anyone did.
While it was a bit trashy and crass, there was something addictive to how ridiculous the cast was.
One of the cast members was a four-foot something drunkard nicknamed Snooki. How that came to be from Nicole, I don't even want to know.
What I do know is that soon she and the show became pop culture icons and forevermore my beloved state would cement itself as the butt of all jokes — as if it wasn't bad enough.
Now a friend of the family went ahead and auctioned off her wheels, a very uniquely modified Cadillac Escalade EXT — ugh —, and it fetched a price of nearly $80,000. Yes, you read that correct.
Someone actually bid $77.5k and change for an Escalade. Whether they pay or not is another story, but I am in a bit of shock.
Is their a soul out there who will ACTUALLY pay that much for a 'slade, let alone Snooki's?
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! For privacy purposes, as a friend of the family, I am selling this vechile on behalf of Nicole. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and I will be happy to answer and furnish more pictures if needed. The car is listed in other forums, therefore, I do reserve the right to end the auction early. Serious bidder only please. Thank you for looking.
