For anyone who’s a HUGE (and wealthy) Barack Obama fan — like verging on psycho stalker Obama fan –act now and you can get his Chrysler 300c for the bargain basement price of $1 million on ebay. If you’re less of a stalker — or just not as filthy rich — you can also start the bidding at $100,000.

From a press release promoting the sale:

(MMD Newswire) January 14, 2009 — The owner of a 2005
Chrysler 300c became aware that Barack Obama was the
previous driver of his vehicle. A website has been created….
http://www.obamas300c.com and the car has been placed on eBay.
The opening bid starts at $100,000 with a buy it now price of
$1,000,000. The 300 c is loaded with leather, sunroof, navigation,
chrome wheels, and a HEMI.

According to the website, in July 2004, Barack Obama took
delivery of this 2005 Chrysler 300c from Park Plaza Dodge in
Forest Park, Illinois. In 2007, Obama swapped his Chrysler
sedan for a Ford Escape Hybrid at Hawk Ford in Oak Lawn, IL.
Hawk Ford then transfered the 300C back to Park Plaza Dodge.
Finally in February 08, the current owner purchased the 300C
from them.

The car was previously listed on eBay in December 2008.
There was a bidding war, and with about three days left, the top
bid was a little above $125,000.  However, the owner canceled
the auction due to short term capital gain tax  issues.

The owner intends to donate a portion of the proceeds to
various charities.
