Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. Oh man, I wasn’t expecting last week’s challenge to bring so much awesome, but you guys really stepped up. That’s because the task was to find the best and worst of Step Vans. We’ll find out which one was a step above the rest in just a sec, but first, this week’s classified conquest!
You may find them a pox on the landscape, always seemingly blocking the roads and rarely making left turns. Or you may eagerly await their arrival for whatever package they might bring, or food they might just dispense. Wither way, working trucks are a fact of life in the both the city and the suburbs. Another fact is that most big cities also have a lot of taxis clogging and hogging the best curbsides and corners, and that’s just what this week’s challenge is, to find the best and worst of taxi cab ads. We’ll leave the meter running, and remember the driver carries no more than $20 cash.
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 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
