Everyone is burning their LeBron James gear, and those that aren't burning it are trying to unload it. Take Austin Briggs — a.k.a. A Gully — the Kent rapper/marketer/mediawhore whose Witness car became quite the sensation during the last two year.
First it was black, then it was white, then it was for pleasedontleave23.com complete with a petition and fan/celebrity signatures, and now it could be yours according to the Canton Repository.
Briggs has the car up on Craigslist. Here's part of the description, all the glorious misspellings included:
Along with the car, I plan to put together a portfolio of videos and publications that tell the story of this unprecedented grass routes effort. The sale of the Witness Mobile is also likely to get media attention. ESPN is already inquiring about the future plans for the car. The Vehicle itself is a 1987 Cutlass Supreme. It has 24" rock starr rims, Vertical doors, duel exhaust, checkered pillow seats, full sized automatic sunroof, LED MVP signs in the doors and a great sound system. The hood and fenders are covered with thousands of signatures from fans, and the trunk has signatures from various Sports figures and Cleveland legends including:
Josh Cribbs, Bernie Kosar, Eddie George, Alex Macc, Tedd Ginn, Troy Smith, Austin Carr, Camby Russel, Buster Douglass, Ed Reed, Terrell Prior, Rob Simms, Mike Kudla, Otto Orf, Edgar Jones, Brad Sellers, Richard Quinn, Mario Manningham, Barry Cofield, Brandon Jacobs, Terrell Prior, Beanie Wells, Trevor Crowe
I'd totally offer $23,000 but that Trevor Crowe autograph is a deal breaker, even if Terrell Prior did sign the car too.
