History Isn't Always Pretty: First Ever Pontiac Aztek For Sale

Offbeat

Collector's cars don't have to be attractive, sometimes history is enough.

Back in the Sixties, the TV show "The Saint" caused a huge boom in sales of the Volvo P1800. Strangely, "Breaking Bad" somehow hasn’t caused a spike in the value of used Pontiac Azteks. But here is one Aztek which has a legitimate claim to a higher-than-bluebook value, the first ever production unit of the car. The Aztek would go on to fall hilariously short of projected sales, and is sometimes seen as one of the reasons for Pontiac’s sad and painful demise.

But the example seen here is from a time before the Aztek was an obvious failure, and it has been remarkably well preserved in all its 2001-era glory. The car has just 7,617 miles on it and is absolutely immaculate. It is being sold on eBay, and as of this writing, the bidding is up to $14,766.66. The reserve has not been met. There is still 4 days and 3 hours left. $14.7k is in the upper range of the Blue Book value, but the supremely good condition and historical significance are certainly worth something. It could actually be a decent investment, assuming the government doesn't seize it when they catch you making meth.
