The World’s Worst Car Is For Sale On Craigslist

Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. 

Here in the United States only Utah, Indiana, and Tennessee have laws on the books banning women from going topless in public. I think that’s reason enough to stay out of those obvious hell-holes, but the ladies should also be advised not to drive any of last week’s finds in those states, as you don’t know just how ambiguously written any of those laws might be. We’ll see who was the cheapest exhibitionist in a minute, but first I’ll bet you’re champing at the bit to see what this week’s challenge is.

Last week was cheap convertibles, which let you commune with mother nature via a wide-open roof. This week I want to go even more back to basics when it comes to what separates you from the out of doors when in motion, today I want the coolest gokarts money can buy.

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.

  1. 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 tips@hooniverse.info and we can put you on the whitelist
  2. If you don’t want an IDC account, you can create a wordpress.com account and do the same thing.
  3. 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
Craigslist Crapshoot doesn’t work if your candidates don’t get seen, so hopefully following one of these options will ensure that the floodgates of crap are fully open. Make the jump to see some cheap toplessness.
 
 
There is just something freeing about driving a convertible. Perhaps it’s all that wind in your hair, or maybe it’s the explosion of sensory inputs, but driving a topless car on a perfect day is pure bliss. In fact, even on a less than perfect day, say on the drive home after a bad day at work, doing so topless can really improve your mood. You know what else can turn a frown upside down? Getting that convertible car for a mere pittance, that’s what. We had lots of cheap drop tops last week from all across the globe, and in fact the probably execrable but I want it because I can’t have it Alfa Spider 2.0 found for 1800€ by Giordi would be pretty tempting if it weren’t in Italy.

Instead of that potential money pit, this week’s winner is yet another to come to America by way of a boat, and one that shares the Alfa’s disreputable reputation. It’s also cheaper by a factor of 3 and readily available to us folks on this side of the pond. This is of course the infamous and vilified Triumph TR7, here found for an affordable $800 by Scandinavian Flick.  Well Done!
