Dita Von Teese is selling her car on Ebay!
Dita used a pin-up photos of herself in the baby blue 1939 Packard 120 and a product description to rival F. Scott Fitzgerald* himself.
The age said:
“A rare offering on Ebay: This fabulous French-Blue 1939 Packard 120 sedan owned by the beautiful burlesque star and classic car aficionado Dita Von Teese! This car was restored about 10 years ago and runs and drives absolutely perfectly. The engine and transmission are in pristine mechanical condition, having been rebuilt at the time of the restoration. The paint, although very nice, is just starting to show it’s age a bit with a few areas of light crazing, as you can see in the photos, but it doesn’t detract from the beauty of this car in any way, and a new paint job isn’t necessary at this time. The electrical system is in excellent working order, with all gauges and lights working well. It has a VERY RARE original factory Tachometer installed where the clock would be. Dita put new tires on this car less than a year ago, they are the Coker Radial wide whites, and they make the car drive very smoothly, and they look slick! Also of note is the exceptional glamorous flying lady hood ornament with etched glass detail, a fine example of the type of artistry and quality that makes these cars so desirable and excellent investments. There are no mechanical issues whatsoever with this classic, restored-original car. Dita personally enjoyed driving this dreamboat of a car to many different events, used it in her photo shoots and videos including a Forbes story about her classic car collection. The Packard, notoriously the getaway car of choice for prohibition-era gangsters, has been one of Dita’s favorite cars to own and drive due to its power, ease of drive, smoothness and reputation in the classic car world. The only reason she’s letting this one go is that she recently purchased a 1940 Cadillac convertible sedan, and so in the interest of making space, plus the hope of passing it on to someone that will drive it often, she’s decided to let me sell it. This is as reliable as a classic car gets, an excellent choice for anyone that wants an eye-catching, drivable, classic 1930′s era top-of the-line automobile.”
If you want to bid on the car you have to fast and rich as the car bidding ends in two days time and you have to have over $24K in the bank.
By the looks of things Harry Styles will never be a artist!
The teen singer and his other band mates in One Direction (apart from Louis) have drawed a photo of himself as a stick man up for auction with all the money going to charity.
Jo Hemmings, a psychologist who saw the images said:
“Self-portraits, especially swiftly drawn images like these, rather than detailed artwork, can be one of two things. Sometimes it is to explore and better understand yourself or it may be to express yourself to others, to allow others to see you as you see yourself or as you wish to be seen. Performers who are used to being in the spotlight, like the One Direction boys, will very often reveal their hidden anxieties or underlying personality traits, whatever their public image may be.”
The painting will go on sale n Ebay from Wednesday, February 6 until Friday, February 15.
The money goes to vInspired, which helps kids in the UK to get into volunteering in their community.
Last year Lady Gaga threw a pair of her shoes that she wore at her concerts in to the audience to thousands of fans attending the show.
Well now the shoes are going up for auction at the Drouot Richelieu auction house in Paris, on February 11 and are said to rack in more than $6K.
Gaga threw the 12cm heel at the Bercy stadium in the French capital on December 19, 2010, during her Monster Ball Tour,
The shoes are a Giorgio Armani design exclusively to the Monster Ball tour so if you thinking about going to the local shoe show to buy a pair it’s impossible unless you bid for them at auction.
It’s been reported that O.J. Simpson is putting the knife that was used to hill his wife up for auction.
The weapon was never found and ended up being a key component of his acquittal, so it’s worth about about $5 million to somebody out there.
The source has said:
“O.J. wants the deal to be a well-kept secret. He’s looking for a strictly cash deal so that the money can be deposited in offshore accounts and can’t be traced directly to him.”
He is still in prison and doesn’t come out until 2017 but the sources also say that as other motivations:
“It’s not just about the money. O.J. will get a sick satisfaction from putting one over on the cops and Ron Goldman’s family. He’d love to think he’s outsmarted them.”

Darren Criss got all emotional over the other nights episode of Glee!
He uploaded a photo of him crying with some tissues (Above) and is now selling the tissue box that all the cast have signed on a auction website. The good thing is ALL of the money they get from the tissue box goes to charity.
He tweeted along with the photo above:
“So many tears, so many tissues needed from last night’s episode- so why not do some good while we’re at it? …”
The auction ends this Friday so if you want the box of tissues you need to hurry!
