Twelve years ago, one of the most controversial vehicles we’ve ever seen was born – the Pontiac Aztek. Some call it the ugliest thing they’ve ever seen, while we have a different opinion on the matter. Not only is it spacious; it had durable plastic everywhere, decent fuel economy, and spaceship design elements to it. In short, the Pontiac Aztek was simply ahead of its time, as it was GM’s early take at a crossover SUV.
Now that the Aztek has become some sort of automotive icon (perhaps with the help of the hit TV show Breaking Bad), the popularity has risen – however, this VIN #001 Aztek remains an exception to the rest of them when it comes to book value.
Back in ’09, this car went across the block at Barrett-Jackson, and sold for a healthy $15,950. Now this very model is for sale online at a dealer in Texas for a slightly unrealistic $16,999, although it has a mere 8,000 miles on the odometer.
