Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.
Well the 2014 Winter Olympics are now history, and while they were overshadowed a bit by the political unrest in the nearby Ukraine, the games went off with only a few hitches. One of those was a failure of the electric Olympic symbol during the opening ceremonies, a gaff that reminded us all of the Auto Union logo, and hence last week’s quest was an olympic sized one – to find brands that made up that union of automobiles. The most unionized of all we be revealed in a moment, but now this week’s task.
We spend a lot of time looking for the worst that the classifieds has to offer so this week I thick we should be seeking the best. What I want you to find are ads for cars that look to be screamin’ deals, and I want you to provide justification for them. They could be a sub-thirty grand 328 GTB or a Hyundai Pony that’s offered to anyone who can get it started and drive it away. This is a contrarian’s Craigslist Crapshoot, and as such we want only the best deals you can find.
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 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
