Offers roll in for Anthony's car

ORLANDO (WESH/NBC) - Offers are rolling in for one of the most iconic pieces of evidence in Casey Anthony's murder trial - her white Pontiac Sunfire.

The car is still in the possession of the Orange County Sheriff's Office, which said the car can be picked up anytime by George and Cindy Anthony, who own the car.

Their attorney, Mark Lippman, said he's been getting calls from people interested in buying the car.

The car was thought to be key to proving the state's murder case against Casey Anthony.

Numerous witnesses took the stand saying how the car smelled like it had contained a dead body.

"There are collectors of macabre things. Apparently, this falls into that category now," Lippman said.

The Kelley Blue Book lists the normal value on a used Sunfire at about $3,000, but Lippman said it could go to a collector for more than that.

The money would be donated to the new foundation the Anthonys are establishing in memory of Caylee Anthony.

"I've had multiple offers to purchase it, but George and Cindy do not want to profit off it by any means," Lippman said.

Where would the car go?

Not to the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, D.C., according to the museum's CEO.

The museum has items like the so-called Bonnie and Clyde car riddled with bullet holes and vehicles belonging to Ted Bundy and John Dillinger.

"There wasn't any proof it was part of a crime," museum CEO Janine Vaccarello said. "It's not a true historic artifact, so its value should diminish in the wake of that."
