Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. Last week I asked you to find non-native cars for sale, and the result was like an Ellis Island tollbooth. We’ll check papers after the jump, but first let’s get to this week’s assignment.
It’s traditionally considered that the French Revolution started with the convocation of the Estates General in May 1789. That may have made the French les miserables, but that’s not to say that so have been the revolutionary cars made by French automakers in the years hence. This week I want you to find those French cars for sale, the only criteria being that they must be outside of France. So, adjust your beret, pencil in your mustache, and cop an attitude, this week’s Craigslist Crapshoot is its own French revolution.
And as usual, 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 email@example.com 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
