Pol Pot's 1973 stretch Mercedes on eBay

Imagine the conversations and activities that took place inside Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot's limousine.

Mr. Pot killed about two million Cambodians (a quarter of the country's population) in the 1970s in order to live the high life. But you don't need to kill anyone to own this piece of history. You just have to be the high bidder on eBay.
