Jones' Mangled Lexus Auctioned
George Jones' wrecked Lexus has a new owner. Marvin Sandrell, a used-car dealer from Maury County in Tennessee, purchased the totaled vehicle for $15,800 on Internet auction site eBay, reports The Tennessean. Dr. Raymond Turek of Murfreesboro, Tenn., paid $22,000 for the inoperable Lexus in June 1999, three months after Jones had a near-fatal crash near Franklin, Tenn. Sandrell plans to use the battered vehicle to promote his business and is talking to a car museum in East Tennessee and a casino in Tunica, Miss.
