“Seinfeld” fans will remember when Jerry climbed into a tiny BMW 300 and struggled to get out of it. It happened in the West Village, New York City, on a Wednesday afternoon. The embarrassing moment was a part of a photo shoot and gave bystanders and paparazzi quite a show.
Watching the comedian try to climb out of the three-wheeled BMW had everyone laughing. With a net worth of 950 million dollars, getting stuck in a miniature vehicle may be his biggest concern.
1960 Volkswagen Beetle
Jerry Seinfeld is known for his collection of kitschy vehicles, so it comes as no surprise that he once had a 1960 VW bug in his cars' compilation. The funny thing about this car is what it sold for at auction, a staggering $121,000.
The comedian auctioned off a few of his favorite automobiles for charity, and this one was a stunner. The expected auction value of this car was $30 grand, yet somehow, Seinfeld received four times that amount!
1964 Volkswagen Camper
Another one of Seinfeld's infamous auction sales is the 1964 Volkswagen Camper. The "Easy Camper" conversion sold for a whopping $99,000. The comedian confessed that he drove his kids around in the camper when they were younger to get bagels and lox.
He admits they loved the kitchen inside the camper. The Seinfeld family even got cited in the Hamptons for setting up an illegal lemonade stand. Honestly, we can't blame them; we'd be selling hotdogs and lemonade out of our windows if we had a van like this!
1957 Fiat 500
There's something about Fiat vehicles that really catch Seinfeld's eye. Perhaps it's the minimalist design of the cars. His 1957 Fiat is one of the first city cars ever manufactured and only has a top speed of 53 mph.
Being one of the oldest car makers in the world, Fiats' appeal and basic engines make them attractive to shade-tree mechanics. That being said, Seinfeld isn't one to work on his vehicles himself. He has a dedicated fleet management team in New York that takes care of the dirty work.
1964 Morgan Plus 4
In the '60s, Morgan Motor Company wanted to create a more powerful car than the typical roadsters of the time. They revised the previous 44 models and ran production with a new design from 1950 to 1969. There have been other revivals since; another reboot was produced in 2005.
Jerry’s specific Morgan features a 105 hp engine, an ash wood frame, and a four-speed manual gearbox. When asked about the car, Jerry joked that he doesn’t have to worry about rust, just termites.
