Kurt Cobain fans have their limit, and it appears to be $99,999.99.

Bids for 1972 Dodge Sportsman Van featuring a sketch of the band KISS done by the late grunge-rocker in an eBay auction failed to meet an unpublished reserve price that is reportedly $150,000.

The auction began on March 3rd and attracted 157 bids for the van, which was the first touring vehicle used by the influential Montesano, Washington, based alternative rock band, The Melvins.

Known affectionately as the “Melvan,” it is currently owned by long-time Melvins fan, Ben Berg, who received it as a gift from the mother of founding member Matt Lukin in 1992, according to

According to rock legend, Cobain scribbled the image of the four members of KISS on the side of the van using Sharpies stolen from a convenience store. Berg told Rolling Stone that he heard Cobain’s name is carved somewhere inside of the Dodge, but he doesn’t know where.
