With well known psychic, Uri Geller, in the bidding, the online sale of Elvis' former Audubon Drive home has passed $400,000.00. Uri Geller held the bid at $351,000 before several other bids came in. Geller, who lives in London, said he would increase his bid substantially.
"If I was Bill Gates, I would bid as much as I can," Geller said. "But I also have my limits. Hopefully, though, I will be able to go up and up and up and get it. I have good faith." If successful, Geller, who met Presley in Las Vegas in the 1970s and owns a large collection of Elvis memorabilia, said he wants to turn the 3,000-square-foot (280-sq-metres) home into a museum with a twist.
"It will have all the bizarre things that Elvis Presley believed in," including his fascination with UFOs, Geller told Reuters. "He was ahead of his time." The auction closes on 14 May.

What makes Geller think he can turn Audubon Drive into a Museum......maybe only or a select few visitors....but its not going to happen in the middle of a residential area....audobon drive would be a cool thing to own...but all that is left is memories and maybe a few FARTS in the air......Ps this is going to go for well over 1.5 million us
