Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, aka "the Woz," filmed this really cheesy commercial for the Datsun 280z back in the '80s. After surfacing on the Internet recently, the commercial motivated the Woz to sell his 2005 Nissan 350Z Anniversary Edition to benefit UC Berkeley's Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In the updated commercial, Woz-man is seen gliding over his pool on his Segway x2 scooter to his spiffy sports-car, which he declares is "awesome!" (Read about his Segway polo skills here). Though initially listed for $100,000, Woz (responding to complaints) recently reduced the price to $49,050, and says he'll make up the difference. Maybe he'll have lunch with you, too.
