This is one of the strangest listings I've ever come across here on Autotrader -- and yet also one of the most intriguing. It's a 2000 BMW Z3 that's been signed, to quote the ad, "by 647 Major League Baseball players, managers, and visiting dignitaries to Enron Field in Houston during the 2000 season."

An unusual car in its own right, as it's a stick-shift Z3 with just 3,800 miles on the odometer, this particular Z3 is especially unusual because, well, it's covered in signatures. The car was apparently signed by a new team each time that team came to play the Astros in 2000, which means it's covered in National League team signatures -- although there are a few American League teams present, too, like the Minnesota Twins, Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals. A quick check of the Houston Astros' 2000 schedule reveals that each of those teams came to Enron that summer for interleague play.

Among the most famous players to sign the car are Hank Aaron, Sammy Sosa, Brooks Robinson, Randy Johnson, Greg Maddux and Tom Seaver.

Of course, all these signatures likely mean this car isn't something you'd want to drive around when it's raining, or snowing, or threatening to rain, or threatening to snow. You probably also wouldn't want to park it in a parking lot, for fear of dents or door dings. And, well, you might not want to drive it at all, or else you could get hit -- and lose a few panels of irreplaceable signatures.

And so, this Z3 has lived a strange life: covered in signatures, rarely driven, and now for sale on Autotrader with a $35,000 asking price in Las Vegas, Nevada.
