Pope gets new car

By Zimgreats. com October 18, 2006

Johannebsurg - Pope Benedict XVI has received a new car from a car manufacturer in his home country Germany.

According to Italian news agency, Ansa, the Pope was personally presented with the keys to his black Volkswagen Phaeton with a pale grey interior.

The one year old pontiff already sold his VW Golf car he owned before his appointment in May. The car was sold on an Internet auction site for US$250,000 dollars.

"Really, if you think about it," the blogger typed, "It could be just about anything."
