Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly dive into the deep end of the pool filled with the automotive world’s most horrible road warriors – that you could potentially buy. After two weeks of this, a couple of things have become apparent- one, there’s a lot more crap out there than you could possibly imagine, and two, the threshold of what some of you consider carp is way lower than the rest of us.
On that second note, I’d like to call out Joshuman for offering up an amazing hand built ’50 roadster that while obviously the object of a slightly eclectic individual’s taste, is still pretty freaking cool. But that’s not why we’re here, we want the dreck, the - I wouldn’t be caught dead bungie-cording the trunk shut in the Walmart parking lot on that thing - kinds of cars that are offered for sale, and on that account you all came up with some amazingly bad contenders.
Of course, there can only be one king of the Craigslist Crapshoot per week, and to find out which car or truck rose to the top of the cespool, click on through the jump. Oh and keep looking for more of them this week!
Awful cars, terrible paint, questionable customs- last week’s selection was a cornucopia of crap. The one vehicle that stood out however, was a custom Ford Ranger found by our own Tanshanomi on the Kansas City Craigslist.
The paint job on this Ranger make it look like something shat out by Gauguin, or perhaps driven by some horror in Silent Hill. Well done Tans, and a hearty round of applause to the rest of you for last week’s contributions. It makes you wonder what horrors this week will hold.
