Default BMW w/ Jesus trim package

WTF?

Quote:
Delusional Texan spots Jesus in BMW 3-series woodgrain



People are always seeing faces in things. More often than not, at least in America, the face seems to be that of Jesus and/or other New Testament luminaries.

We're generally quick to write it off as happenstance -- after all, how many leaky pipes cause thousands of dollars in property damage without leaving vaguely
human-like impressions in the ruined plaster? That we see the faces at all is probably just a result of our innate pattern-recognition programming meshing with
our yearning for the divine or our desire to make a quick buck.

But eBay seller schapellin may be on to something with his/her 2008 BMW 3-series.



Yes, in that plush interior, between (moderately worn) leather seats and just to the right of the gear selector base is a human face, clear as day in the
lustrous burled wood veneer.

Look, we were skeptical too, but the seller has a 100 percent positive feedback rating. We'd be tempted to bid on the car with confidence (minor
scratches on the body, we're told, aren't even particularly noticeable). Except that the auction ended prematurely with a reserve-not-met price of $6,900.

Either the Vatican choppered in with large sums of cash to buy Focus-driving Francis a more upmarket ride or the seller realized how silly the whole
auction was.

Because whatever face manifested itself in the woodgrain isn't Jesus -- you'd have to be blind not to realize that. We're torn between Karl Marx (the
irony would be delicious) but it could be Charlton Heston as Moses if you want to keep the Biblical thing going.

See for yourself:

So is it Karl Marx...


...or Charlton Heston?

I used to live near Humble, TX. I bet the auction was ended early because the car was stolen.

Impossible. Jesus is a 3 pedal guy. Autotragics are the debil's work. Everyone knows this.

Eh, that's more Atascocita than Humble. I was thinking 59/1960 area. A friend of mine is a nurse at Memorial Hermann Northeast and she's had three cars stolen from the employee lot at the hospital. Lol

The thing that stood out the most to me is the panel fitment on the glove box. WTF happened there?
