German Politics

A Used Papamobil. reports (in German) that 21 year-old Benjamin Halbe from Olpe, Germany, is selling his car on ebay. Not news, you think? Fair enough, but apparently, according to the car’s documentation, it previously belonged to Joseph Kardinal Ratzinger – although I’m not really sure about how Cardinals are supposed to handle personal property.

The new Pope supposedly used it to drive around incognito. I’m rather sure that will not be the reason for which the next owner will pay a significant premium for a used VW Golf.
