GOT 4,000 DOLLARS LYING AROUND? BUY ELLIOT SMITH’S CAR!

Then you should use it to buy Elliot Smith’s Passat.  Yup, the sister of the sadly deceased troubador has put his, hah, Passat up on the market to try and help raise money for SIMS, an Austin-based non-profit that helps those who deal with addiction and mental health problems.

4,000 seems like a reasonable price for a four year old Passat, here’s hoping the mileage is good.

Seriously here’s the Craigslist posting:

About the Passat: It was my brother’s, who was a musician himself. He’s no longer with us, and I think he’d be happy to know that the sale of his car will help other musicians in need … This car means the world to me, and has a very interesting story to tell. Music buffs might get a kick out of knowing who used to own their ‘new’ car … Help me help SIMS, feel good about yourself, and get a fun car in the process.
