Today we’re launching a new feature on the site: The Hooniverse Marketplace. Not to be confused with the Hooniverse Shop, the Marketplace is about hooking the sellers of uniquely “Hooniverse” vehicles with, you, the Hooniverse readership. This site was born from friends kicking around ridiculous cars for sale, and it only seems fitting to give people the opportunity to join in on that fun.
Getting down to it: for $25, we’ll run a post on your car for sale.
Is today the day we sell out? Probably not. For one, we retain the right to refuse your any listing for any reason, including laziness and not liking your car. Also, we’ll be adding our own commentary to the post. We’re happy to post up your hopeless basket case, but we’ve gotta call it like we see it (besides, we love hopeless basket cases). We won’t be happy to post up your ’97 V6 Camaro. In a few minutes you’ll see an example of what we’re looking to run. Lastly, we’d rather pay the bills by helping people buy and sell awesome cars than running auto insurance quote referral ads on the sidebar.
Obviously, we’re not the first to come up with this idea. That said, we think we’re in a pretty good (ok, crappy) niche below the high-class guys and above your local craigslist or model-specific forum. None of those places are likely to appreciate your non-running Caddy 500 powered Oldsmobile Cutlass quite the way we will.
All the details/FAQ are available on the Hooniverse Marketplace page, so head over there if you’re interested or curious. If you’ve got some metal you’re looking to move, hit us up at email@example.com
