Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.
(Rob’s Note: Due to the Project Car Update Orgy, CC was preempted last week.)
Do you remember disco? No? What’s that you say, you weren’t even born when that dance craze had its heyday? Well, last time we met we looked at what kind of two-seaters had survived since the seventies, and boy, a lot have! For those of you with short memories, no memories, or suppressed memories, our chosen disco due posti is so seventies that it’ll flare your trousers, perm your hair, and crave some white lines just by looking at it. It probably needs a parental advisory notice. Before we do the time warp, let’s get this week’s quest out of the way.
Who doesn’t love a deal? Back when Saturn was a thing, someone undertook a survey to see if the brand’s buyers liked the no-hassle pricing that the brand offered. Amazingly, while the respondents praised the buying experience for its reduced stress, they mostly felt that they didn’t get a bargain due to their paying the list price and not negotiating something – anything – off the sticker. You freakin’ can’t win! Saturn is long gone, but we’re still interested in getting a bargain when buying a car and this week that’s just what I want y’all to find - the best seeming bargains the classifieds have to offer. We’re not looking for any make or model in particular, just cars and trucks that seem to be screamin’ deals.
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.
If you’re down with that, let’s go look at what the ’70s looked like… in car form!
