'Pope My Ride!'

019609500

That's the headline over the report in today's Washington Post's about a metallic gray 1999 VW Golf (above) on sale on German eBay.

Turns out the car's paperwork, held in the photo above by the vehicle's current owner, Benjamin Halbe of Olpe, Germany, indicates the vehicle was once owned by Joseph K. Ratzinger, aka Pope Benedict XVI.

The car went up on eBay this past Friday and at the time I wrote this (3:53 p.m. ET today) the top bid was $80,587.

The auction ends this coming Thursday so you've got plenty of time.

According to a German eBay spokesman, said the Post story, "the online auctioneer checked with the vehicle licensing office and confirmed that the name of the original owner [former Cardinal Ratzinger] was genuine."
