2 Rental Cars Used by Hijacker Attract Bids Up to $250,000
The two rental cars used by hijacker Mohamed Atta before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks have been put up for sale by the owner, who has received bids as high as $250,000, the Associated Press reported. James Glynn, the owner of the white 1995 Ford Escort and 1996 faded-blue Chevrolet Corsica, said offers have come from dealers in collectible cars and museums. One person who has also made a bid wanted to charge people to sledgehammer the two vehicles. Glynn, who said he would consider offers only from legitimate collectors or museums, said he would donate the proceeds to the American Legion and the Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranch Program. Glynn, owner of Fedtrust Liquidators, bought the vehicles in January from car rental owner Brad Warrick, who put the vehicles in storage for four months after the FBI returned them.
