Serial killer Ted Bundy removed the passenger seat of his beige Volkswagen Beetle to make space for the bodies of the young female college students he lured into the car during his mid-1970s killing spree. A few years later, a pair of Utah sheriff's deputies bought the car at auction for $975, and then in 1997 turned a profit on it. They listed the car for $25,000 in an ad in TheNew York Times classified section, and it was bought by a collector in upstate New York. He then turned around and leased it to the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, D.C., where it now resides.
