When General Motors Company and Tiger Woods parted their ways late last year, GM asked the pro-golfer to keep some GM vehicles for his personal use, including the Buick Enclave and the now famous Cadillac Escalade. According to the folks over at Drive On, the crashed Escalade could be repaired and auctioned off.
Speaking to the USAToday publication, Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell said:
The vehicle will be repaired, firstly. This is a promotional/marketing vehicle — the kinds of cars used for advertising, public displays, photography, etc. That makes this a little different than a garden-variety car repair – given its special usage. So I don’t know what will happen until that repair is completed and analyzed. It could return to service as a promotional vehicle, meaning it would go back into the pool of cars that we use for various marketing activities. Or, on the other hand, we produce a lot of new vehicles. It’s sometimes easier to take a new car and put it into this kind of role. In that case, the older vehicle could be re-purposed in many ways – we could retain ownership of it, using it for other internal duties, or we could indeed sell it off. Generally selling a company-owned vehicle means that it would go into an auction. So there are a few options.
