Laguna Beach Kristin’s made-over Isuzu Trooper for sale on eBay

No stranger herself to eBay auctions, Kristin Cavallari’s former SUV is now up for auction on eBay. The vehicle was featured on the Laguna Beach reunion, when it received a makeover.

The auction page says it’s her “infamous white jeep on the show,” although it’s actually a 1994 Isuzu Trooper. However, it’s been made over by MTV. Among the upgrades, according to the seller: “The Laguna Beach logo is stiched into the car’s wheel cover,” the front seat has a “video screen and DVD player,” and there’s “a video game console (play station) in the back.”

The owners say they won the car in an auction and are now selling it as-is because they live in New York and don’t drive it; they promise to send the winner “a copy of the title to the car that lists Dennis Cavallari as the previous owner.”

As of 11 p.m. ET on Friday, there’s only been one bid, and it’s for $11,000. The auction ends Sunday night.

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
