Former NFL wide receiver Randy Moss isn’t happy that the 1999 purple Lexus GS 400 that he purchased during his rookie season is for sale on eBay. The car has 145,000 miles on it
The eBay listing reads as follows:
This car was originally purchased and owned by NFL Great and future NFL Hall of Fame inductee Randy Moss. Randy purchased this car after his stellar Rookie season with the Minnesota Vikings and immediately had it customized by having it painted Vikings Purple to show his “Purple Pride”! The car has 145,000 miles.
This car is being auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to several charities located in Randy’s home state of West Virginia. The car is accompanied with a letter of authenticity from the current owner and former Agent/Attorney for Randy Moss. Additionally, documentation from Lexus validates that Randy was the original purchaser of the car.
Moss voiced his displeasure on Twitter.
