Wanna Buy This Boeing 727 Limousine?
The Boeing 727 is still the jet many people imagine when they picture air travel, despite the model's retirement from the skies a few years ago. For decades it was the most popular aircraft in service, and one enterprising person decided to take one of those thousands of grounded craft and turned it into a 24,000-pound limousine. The ... uh ... car is currently based in Chicago, seats up to 50 people, and is street legal thanks to underpinnings from an old Mercedes bus. And, best of all, it can be yours.
The owner has put the thing up on eBay. It has so far received 15 bids with the current price at $269,900, which includes free delivery anywhere in the world.
The owner claims the thing rents out for $40,000 per week, so buying it seems like an economical choice. That is, of course, assuming you have a driveway bigger than most runways.
