Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.
Surf’s up, and so were the surfers’ rides last week. We’ll catch that wave in a minute, but first, this week’s quest.
Do you have an aspirational marque? You know, one that you say once you reach a certain level of financial attainment you will own no matter what? Has that goal had to be re-set as other finical responsibilities intruded upon your dreams? That’s usually how people end up with what we’re looking for today, which is the world’s least-desirable exotics. That’s right, this week let’s find all the Maserati BiTurbos, Chrysler TCs, Ferrari Mondials and automatic-equipped 400s we can. Is there a Porsche or Mercedes model that you think just never seemed at home in their respective family? Let’s see those too.
As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Follow any of the following advice and you’re crap will be known far and wide.
- Easiest way to not get caught in the spam filters is to create an IntenseDebate account. If you do so and your posts aren’t appearing, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can put you on the whitelist
- If you don’t want an IDC account, you can create a wordpress.com account and do the same thing.
- If you’re the Ted Kaczynski type and don’t want any kind of account, then try to place only a single link in a comment and just drop any outgoing link in via its raw URL and not as a text link
Craigslist Crapshoot doesn’t work if your candidates don’t get seen, so hopefully following one of these options will ensure that the floodgates of crap are fully open. Make the jump to see the coolest board buggy.
