Oregon is auctioning off a Volkswagen Beetle helmet car (Photo)

Oregon has been known for some outrageous uniform choices, but this one has to be the most outlandish.

How about an Oregon Duck as a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle?

The Oregon Athletic Department dressed up a white 1973 Volkswagen Beetle with a giant green Oregon helmet and is now trying to auction it to the highest bid, which currently stands at $2,500.

Here’s a auction listing:


A staple at Autzen Stadium for years, now is your chance to own this one of a kind 1973 VW Bug with an Oregon football helmet on top and CD player inside. Imagine parking this at your tailgate on gameday or bringing it to special events.

The helmet is green with a yellow "O" and the Oregon license plate on this unique car is "QB" and registration expires 10/03/13. The seats inside are designed to look like a football with laces and Nike Swoosh.

It has a 1641 CC dual port motor w/ 4 speed stick shift. NOT CURRENTLY IN RUNNING CONDITION.

Disclaimer: This car is currently for display purposes only as it currently does not operate and it has not been driven on roads. The item will need to be picked up from the University of Oregon athletic department. Winning bid is responsible for pick up within 2 weeks!

So, let’s go ahead and strip this description down: Oregon has a junky car that it strapped a giant football helmet to the top of to make look cool. The car doesn’t work, so it would really just go from being a eyesore at Autzen to an eyesore in your driveway. Oh, and it will cost YOU at least $2,500 to haul it away for the university.

Yep, that about sums it up.

Auction ends at 11 p.m. ET Monday and you don’t want to miss this amazing deal.

I suppose a car enthusiast could probably get it running again, paint some uniform-like designs on the white body and make it into something pretty cool to tool around in on gameday.

Maybe then, the university might want to buy it back.
