The Monkeemobile..what ever happened to it?
The death of Davy Jones today has re-opened one of the greatest mystery in television. if you are under 55 … the Monkeemobile is the modified Pontiac GTO made famous on the 1960s Monkees TV show after Davy died, it became THE topic in the Monkees fan world. Famed car customizer George Barris built the car for the show he told TMZ, heis phone has been ringing non stop since Davy passed away, bombarded with questions like, “Where is the car? Is it still available? Can we see it? Can we take a photo with it?” But George doesn’t have the car anymore — he sold it at auction back in 2008 for about $500,000 to a Michigan man by the name of Mel Gutherie. And Mel tells us, he’s always open to fans taking pictures with the car — but they would need to travel to the Midwest … because he doesn’t feel comfortable driving it very far. He had to have it TRUCKED to a Davy Jones concert in 2010, where Davy signed the hood. Thed car has only 8,00 miles on it.
