According to the Screenbid auction site, "Breaking Bad" used three separate Pontiac Azteks. One was used for spare parts, while another will be parked in the Sony lot as a memento/badge of evil triumphing over good. The one up for sale, a 2003 model, "was a crash vehicle. Its rear quarter is pretty much wrecked, and the glass is broken, so it'll need some work. OK, it'll need a whole lot of work." Given that Walt gets $50 for the Aztek in the series, the question for the eventual buyer will be whether to fix it up or leave it as is – a Heisenberg principle question if there ever was one.
While "Breaking Bad" did a better job than most TV series at matching its characters to vehicles, most of its other recognizable rides are either already sold — i.e., Jesse Pinkman's Toyota Tercel — or destroyed during filming. The one exception in Screenbid's auction: Skyler White's 1991 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which has been kept in running condition. If you're going to spend good money on Hollywood's cast-offs, you might as well buy something useful.
