Snooki was selling her car on eBay and she has certainly cashed in. The "Snooki and J-Woww" star's 2011 Cadillac Escalade received over 80 bids and it sold on Feb. 24 for $77,510. The customized SUV was originally listed on the auction-based site for $20,000. According to ExtraTV, "the new owner will enjoy lots of guidette add-ons like custom wheels, ambient lighting."
It is unclear what the new mom plans to use the cash for but it seems as though she wanted to upgrade from her custom pink and black meatball mobile to something a little more practical -- now that she has a baby in tow.
Snooki selling her car is a little surprising because she was always driving it here and there and it seemed very special to her. She put a lot of custom work in to it and really made it her own. She decided to get rid of it for one reason or another, signing the hood, and having a friend list it for auction. It is unknown if she made her money back on it or if she is taking a loss.
"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!" read the eBay listing.
Snooki selling her car could be another step to proving that she's grown up. It is doubtful that she will buy a mini-van to accommodate her "new" life away from the shore but something a little less Barbie-like might better suit her needs.
